Taylor Swift and Shania Twain are on the lam and loving it -- from the look of these photos. The two country artists got silly on the set of a Country Music Television Awards shoot as they recreated the iconic characters from "Thelma & Louise."

Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis played the original pair in the 1991 road trip movie about a girls' weekend gone bad, in which the heroines get caught in a murder scandal and take off for Mexico in their 1966 Thunderbird.

And who will channel Brad Pitt's hitchhiking hottie character, J.D.?  "Glee's" Chord Overstreet. Click to see a photo of the actor looking a lot like Brad, with blond highlights, white V-neck T-shirt and a five o'clock shadow.

While Twain is set to make an appearance at the award show airing Wednesday night, Swift is competing for three awards including video of the year, female video of the year and Web video of the year for her tune "Mine."
