Go Big or Go Home ... or Go to Waffle House? How Country Stars Partied after the CMAs

Everything in country is big, from the hair to the trucks to the personalities. It's no surprise, then, that on country's biggest night, the good times kept rolling even after hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley delivered their final punch lines at Wednesday's CMA Awards.

So how did Nashville's finest celebrate when they filed out of Bridgestone Arena?

Country heavyweights like Pinnacle Award winner Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw (who both earned accolades for their hit "Highway Don't Care") partied with their industry peers – including James Young, Mike Eli, Jon Jones, Brantley Gilbert, Chris Thompson, Jay DeMarcus, Reid Perry, Neil Perry, Kimberly Perry, Scott Borchetta, Danielle Bradbery, Cassadee Pope, RaeLynn and Laura Bell Bundy – at Big Machine Label Group's CMAs afterparty (pictured above).

Whether it's Rascal Flatts "Summer Nights" or Jake Owen's "Barefoot Blue Jean Night," the second we hear one of those songs, we want to grab a beer and go dancing on the beach.

Country's finest are showing off a little skin – and a lot of charm.

"I hate looking at pictures of myself!" Tim McGraw insists. But one glimpse at the 46-year-old singer's ripped abs, which are featured in the new Hot Guys issue of PEOPLE Country, and we'll respectfully disagree.

Equally compelling eye candy? Fellow country stars Jake Owen, 31, and Kip Moore, 33, who also go shirtless in the new issue. But, as Owen explains, that buff beauty is more than skin deep.

Jake Owen's tour bus roommate has taken over the couch.

"He sleeps 16 hours a day," the country star tells PEOPLE of his 1-year-old English bulldog, Merle, who likes to sprawl out on the plush leather sofa – and stay there.

Currently touring with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw, the "Barefoot Blue Jean Night" singer, 30, unwinds every night by messing around with Merle, one of Owen's two dogs that travels with him (the other, Vern, retired from touring after a few years).

Jake Owen managed to squeeze in a low-key May wedding with his bride Lacey Buchanan, but fitting in a lovers' getaway is proving to be much more difficult.

"We haven't gone on our honeymoon," Owen, 30, told PEOPLE at the CMT Music Awards on Wednesday.

While the newlyweds' retreat can wait, tying the knot just couldn't.

"With this tour starting with Kenny [Chesney] and Tim [McGraw], I said, 'Babe, if we don't [get married] this year, I'm going to be busy all throughout next year,' " Owen said. "Lacey was just like, 'Let's just do it now.' "
