To a person, the country stars at the Country Weekly Fashion Show & Concert said they’d rather work a microphone than a runway.

The ladies said they love clothes, but they didn’t love the idea of strutting a runway, especially in high heels.

Even without high heels, it’s no easy task, says Joshua Scott Jones of Steel Magnolia (“Keep On Lovin’ You”). “But,” he added, “you’ve gotta fake it ’til you make it.”

Backstage, Ty Herndon was asked his No. 1 pre-fashion show emotion.

“Fear,” he said.
