Wearing camouflage leggings and rhinestone boots, Kellie Pickler was thousands of miles away from home on Christmas Day, but she smiled as she looked out at her audience from her makeshift stage.

The country singer was in Kandahar, Afghanistan, with her husband, Kyle Jacobs, on her seventh USO tour. "There's no place I'd rather spend Christmas," she reportedly told the troops.

The former American Idol contestant, who has been working with the USO since 2007, and was on a nine-day tour in the Middle East and has been sharing pics of her experience on Twitter.

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).

Kellie Pickler Celebrates DWTS Win with Hero's Welcome in Nashville

At a party backstage, she was presented with a caricature of her dancing on the Opry stage, a pair of Music City flip-flops, a mirror-ball cake, keys to the city and the surprisingly heavy trophy handed over to her by Hough, who was on hand for the celebration.
