In her opening monologue at Wednesday night's CMT Music Awards, host Kristen Bell dedicated a song to the two hottest accessories among the sexy men of country music: belt buckles and moose knuckles, a term we will not even try to explain. (Click the link if you're curious.)
A list of the best moose knuckles of the CMT Awards would be inappropriate, but the best belt buckles? Yeah, that's doable. (It also happens to be the mold for the night's award.)
And if your eyes should wander south … well, don't say we didn't warn you.
Check out the dudes keepin' it country with their big belt buckles below. Who wore it best? That's what our grades are here to tell you.

Like peanut butter and jelly or, say, the Internet and cat videos, country music and major hair just go together.
And while today's crop of Nashville regulars put plenty of time (read: hairspray) into their dos, we'd really like to see these singers return to the genre's roots (pun intended).
Ahead of Wednesday's CMT Music Awards, we're playing stylist for the female video of the year nominees to imagine what they'd look like rocking the styles and, more importantly, hair of yesteryear.
