ACM Awards 2013 red carpet live stream - Watch now

What happens in Vegas isn't staying in Vegas this time. The 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards are hitting the "Live Entertainment Capital of the World." Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan host the big bash, as country superstars like Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, George Strait and Kelly Clarkson perform. But before the telecast on CBS, it's a Las Vegas-style red carpet you won't want to miss.

So who will rock this countrified red carpet? Will T-Swift actually surprise fans by stepping outside her comfort zone and trying a new look? Is the cast of "Duck Dynasty" going to appear in blinged-out camouflage? Will Miranda Lambert shock the world by finally making the best dressed list? (Please, Miranda, we're really pulling for you.)
