It's been quite a year.
We gained a Prince, lost many beloved stars, saw sad news break and happy occasions happen. And we just happened to get a lot on video.
In our look back at the high points and lowlights of 2013, we found 13 PEOPLE videos that show the year in pop culture – twerking included. So sit back, turn up the volume and reminisce with us.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall!
On Monday, George Clooney and Tim McGraw were spotted chatting late into the night at the bar at The Florida Hotel in Orlando after wrapping up shooting their upcoming film Tomorrowland at NASA's nearby headquarters.
The two costar in the sci-fi blockbuster-in-the-making, which is inspired by the futuristic Disneyland section of the same name and is expected to hit theaters in 2015.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill ended their Las Vegas show on Friday night the same way they always do: sealed with a kiss.
The couple is happy. They're content. They're concerned about their daughter's high-school social schedules. They, however, are not worried about the status of their marriage – despite some recent pesky tabloid reports claiming they're headed for a divorce.
"[Rumors] seem to be running like crazy right now for some reason. It's perplexing," Hill, 46, told PEOPLE when asked about the reports. "I don't know why 'happy' can't be a story."

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).

What a difference a year makes.
In 2012, country music newcomer Hunter Hayes was thrilled to introduce Carrie Underwood as one of CMT's Artists of the Year – now he's been given the same honor himself.
The 22-year-old is one of five country music stars who've been named CMT's 2013 Artists of the Year.
"This year has been amazing, and I thought it couldn't get any better, and then they told me this," the "Wanted" singer tells PEOPLE exclusively.

It's hot – really hot – these days. To help you get through the sweltering weekend ahead, we picked our favorite summer jams that should make you forget about the sweat dripping down your back.
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.
Maybe you're one of the lucky fans who will be attending one of the awesome festivals happening this weekend – Country Thunder in Twin Lakes, Wis., Jamboree in the Hills in Belmont, Ohio, or Faster Horses in Brooklyn, Mich. – where you'll get to hear Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean and more play their hits.

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.
