Danica Patrick surprised many of her fans when she appeared in country chanteuse Miranda Lambert’s 2012 video for ‘Fastest Girl In Town” – but the NASCAR babe/butt-kicker showed that she’s got Vegas as well as Nashville chops at the fourth annual American Country Awards held in Sin City Tuesday night.
Patrick – who’s known for, well, not exactly falling short in the babe department – took that talent to the limit by strutting on stage in a classic Vegas showgirl costume. Yes, including copious amounts of feathers and a flesh-colored bikini. Check it out: Guys, you can thank us later!
The motorist (who is no stranger to baring her figure – she’s posed in a swimsuit multiple times, including two turns for Sports Illustrated) didn’t seem nervous at all about her sexy live turn, joking "The good thing about me is that there's no chance of a wardrobe malfunction” because, as she put it, "there's not much to malfunction!”
“I hope that little bit didn't fall flat,” she deadpanned.
Meanwhile, for his part, Patrick's co-host, country star and "Celebrity Apprentice" victor Trace Adkins, kept the laughs coming when he gamely appeared directly following Patrick’s appearance … in drag, warbling a bit of "I Feel Pretty." Not sure he looked quite as hot as Patrick, but we'll leave it up to you to decide.
The 2013 American Country Awards were aired live Tuesday on Fox from the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. See a gallery of the night's red-carpet fashion here!
