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.

Dolly Parton never had children, but she's always had a special bond with kids.
"I grew up in a big old family with eight kids younger than me and several of my brothers and sisters came to live with me early on in my life," she tells PEOPLE Country. "I've loved their kids just like they're my grandkids, and now I've got great-grand-kids!"
Her husband Carl Dean is "Uncle PeePaw" to their nieces and nephews, "and they call me 'Aunt Granny,' " says Parton, 68, who just released her 42nd studio album Blue Smoke. "Now I'm GeeGee, which is great-granny. I often think, it just wasn't meant for me to have kids so everybody's kids can be mine."

Dolly Parton is one of music's true legends, and a being of pure light created to bring joy and love to the world.

Think Dolly Parton and you think dolled up: big hair, long nails, sparkles and curves that are the stuff of punch lines and legends. But the singer says she'd love the chance to shed her "town tramp" look (as she's called it) for the sake of a serious film role.
"I really would love to do something that would be something special enough for me to be willing not to wear the high heels and the fingernails and all that," the star tells PEOPLE Country. "In the same way that Billy Bob Thornton did Sling Blade, I'd love to have a character where I could really, really be an actress and not just Dolly Parton, the personality, the boobs and the hair and all that."

Rare is the friendship that lasts 30 years, and rarer still is the one that earns three Grammy nominations.
But that's just what country's greatest pair of BFFs, Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers, have got going on.
"You Can't Make Old Friends," the duo's latest collaboration, was nominated for the Best Country Group/Duo Performance Grammy Friday night, their third nomination in as many decades performing together.
