1. Brad Paisley and his rugged boots are "Crushin' It" in the ACM press room.

"Whiskey Lullaby" crooner Brad Paisley shows that you don't need to wear a formal suit and dress shoes to make a lasting impression backstage at the ACMs. Instead, this Award winner prefers to celebrate with ripped jeans, a band tee, and worn-in kicks.

Watch the 51st Academy of Country Music Awards, which will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena, on Sunday, April 3 at 8/7. You can also catch all the action on CBS.com and CBS All Access

2. The Brothers Osborne show off their "American Crazy" style.

Brothers and bandmates T.J and John Osborne have never shied away from big sounds—or loud fashion statements.

When they hit the red carpet for the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards, the Brothers Osborne put their best feet forward and struck a fierce pose. Hey, boys. We wouldn't mind if you'd "Stay A Little Longer" before those boots get to struttin'.

Eric Church sports his Sunday best wherever he goes.

Can we get a Hallelujah for this five-time ACM nominee's impeccable style?

Yes, "Cold One" crooner Eric Church demonstrates you can sport a burgundy leather jacket with a wispy scarf and still look polished. However, no show-stopping statement is truly complete without a pair of trusty brown brogans.

"It Don't Take Much" to make us swoon over one-of-a-kind artist Frankie Ballard, who showed up to the 49th Academy of Country Music Awards in a custom Manuel suit and simple cowboy clogs. The only thing better than his bold sartorial choices was his oh-so charming smile.

Florida Georgia Line

5. Florida Georgia Line "Cruise" into our hearts with their kicked-back attitudes.

Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line, who are nominated for Vocal Duo Of The Year, have taken over country music with their massive party hits and undeniable charisma. After all, who doesn't love a pair of boot-clad Southern boys with killer pipes?

Chris Janson vogues on the green.

6. Chris Janson vogues on the green.

When he's not in the studio recording massive hits like "Buy Me A Boat," Chris Janson can be found sunning himself while sporting sturdy work shoes and shades. We can't wait to see what this hunky Single Record Of The Year nominee will wear to the 2016 ACMs!

Yup! Easton Corbin is a master of mixing and matching.

7. Yup! Easton Corbin is a master of mixing and matching.

Brown, beige, and blue aren't color combos you usually see at the ACMs, but, then again, Easton Corbin is no ordinary artist! Ditching traditional black-and-white for a California-cool spring look, the "Like A Song" singer took a risk at the 50th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards that totally paid off. Guess you could say we're totally "Diggin' On You," Corbin!

8. Jake Owen kicks up his heels and struts his stuff in lived-in leather.

When he's not "Beachin'" or enjoying a "Barefoot Blue Jean Night," shaggy-haired country artist Jake Owen is busy setting footwear trends. Who else could make pinstripes and burnt red leather look this good?

9. George Strait is "Here For A Good Time" in perfect party kicks.

In 2015, music legend George Strait arrived at Country Music's Party Of The Year® in his best honky-tonkin' boots. Paired with an embroidered coat and his signature cowboy hat, Strait confirmed that "Living For The Night" is better done in black.

10. Kip Moore fulfills our "Heart's Desire" with this steamy, laced-up ensemble.

Not all boots have stacked heels and pointed toes. From the "Dirt Road" to the glamorous red carpet, Kip Moore and his sturdy shoes can get any job done—especially when it comes to making our hearts pitter-patter!

Toby Keith puts down the

11. Toby Keith puts down the "Red Solo Cup" for a night of sole-stompin' fun.

Bandanas, boots, and button-downs—if we hadn't heard his hit "Should've Been A Cowboy," we'd never have known Toby Keith wasn't one!

12. Luke Bryan dazzles alongside his shiny ACM Awards.

We'll be honest. We didn't know it was possible for boots to appear this sleek. Normally worn to "Kick Up The Dust," leave it to 51st Academy of Country Music Awards co-host and Entertainer Of The Year nominee Luke Bryan to prove that clod-hoppers can be chic.

For more of country's hottest men in the latest fashions and footwear, watch the 51st Academy of Country Music Awards broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3 at 8/7c. The show will also be streamed on CBS.com and on CBS All Access
