CATCH EVERY GUITAR RIFF ON PARAMOUNT+

CMT Music Awards Gift Bags for the Stars

Shotgun Shell Cuff Links Are Just the Beginning

Every artist, performer and presenter who plays a part in the 2015 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night (June 10) gets a gift. It's kind of a thank-you-for-playing present.

But this is no ordinary token of appreciation.

It is a bag packed with, well, frankly, too much for one bag. Starting with these Lord and Lady Co. rustic shotgun cuff links -- made from repurposed shells - -that make me want to run out and buy a French cuff shirt just so I could wear them.

Other down-South highlights include the Bourbon Nib Brittle (basically candy that was aged in old bourbon barrels), the Oh Gussie! cookbook from Little Big Town's Kimberly Schlapman, Music City Suds' Soaking After Midnight (from a place that wraps their bars of soap in reclaimed sheet music, which is genius and earth friendly) and a ball cap from Y'allsome. Plus what would a gift bag be without the bag? There's a special bottle of Crown Royal Regal Apple in a pretty little green bag of its own.
