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.

Country music legend Loretta Lynn is postponing two shows in Iowa because of exhaustion.
A statement from Lynn's representative on the singer's website says the 81-year-old singer started feeling poorly midway through her three-week tour and is taking some time off to be treated.
"Loretta is a pro and wants to give her fans the best show possible," the rep said. "She felt she was physically unable to do that."

A family representative says Betty Sue Lynn, the oldest daughter of country singer Loretta Lynn, has died. She was 64.
According to the statement from the family, Lynn died Monday from complications of emphysema in Waverly, Tenn., near her mother's ranch in Hurricane Mills.
Loretta Lynn, who has six children, was born in the coalfields of eastern Kentucky and chronicled her life in an autobiography and song, both titled "Coal Miner's Daughter."

One of country's greatest legends – that Loretta Lynn was married at 13 – has been shot down by a new report that the Coal Miner's Daughter, believed to be 77, is really three years older than she claims to be.
Combing through the records at the state Office of Vital Statistics in Frankfort, Ky., and checking the records of relatives', the Associated Press reports that Lynn was born April 14, 1932, in the Bluegrass State's Johnson County and is actually 80.
As was memorably told in her bestselling 1976 autobiography Coal Miner's Daughter, which then became a 1980 box-office hit that won a Best Actress Oscar for leading lady Sissy Spacek, Lynn wed husband Doolittle "Doo" Lynn at 13, moved with him to Washington State at 16 and was mother to four (of their eventual six kids) by 18.
