The 2014 American Music Awards were a big night for music of all genres, and although country didn't flood the show, several of country's big names did show up to represent the genre -- and represent it well!

Taylor Swift kicked off the awards show with a rockin' performance of 'Blank Space,' also pocketing the prestigious Dick Clark Award of Excellence. Brantley Gilbert and Luke Bryan were also present at the red carpet event, each taking home country-specific prizes. Country newcomer and actress Lucy Hale was on hand, as well.
