Taylor Swift And Rob Lowe Hug It Out At CMT Artists Of The Year 2011

Taylor Swift left her gold sequins at home and opted instead for red strapless dress at the CMT Artists of the Year 2011 at the Bridgestone Arena last night (November 29th) in Nashville, Tennessee.  She gave host Rob Lowe a big hug on the red carpet, slightly taller than him in peep-toe heels.
