This was simply too good to ignore. At Wednesday night's Country Music Awards, the red carpet was filled with luminaries such as Nicole Kidman and Carrie Underwood, but the most stylish granny on the carpet was the stunning Lynn Anderson and her 63-year-old decolletage. Those young'uns had nothing on Anderson, who is best known for her 1971 hit "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden." It's sad that today's country music stars are more fond of Valentino than gingham, but Anderson showed them all how it's done in a dress that was part cougar-on-the-prowl, part rhinestone cowgirl. But Anderson has been a country fashion icon for decades. Let's time travel back 40 years to check out Miss Anderson in action. Country stars of today, it's time to revive full hair and canary yellow maxi dresses with feather accents. Please?
