This weekend marked the 140th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky. Some of country's biggest stars donned their fanciest duds and biggest hats for the event. Artists attended a variety of events throughout the weekend and walked the red carpet for the big race.

Miranda Lambert, Travis Tritt, Brothers Osborne, Eddie Montgomery (one half of country duo Montgomery Gentry) and Laura Bell Bundy were all spotted in Kentucky for "The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports" and Dierks Bentley and Kix Brooks took a few selfies before watching California Chrome win the race. Later Brooks' wife Barbara tweeted a photo showing that her husband is as good at the horsetrack as he is on stage.

Jo De Messina kicked off the day by voicing the national anthem.
