Dickey and Price make the Cy Young a Nashville party

R.A. Dickey and David Price each picked up a Cy Young Award on Wednesday night.

Looking the two aces couldn't have much more different styles: Price is a power-pitching southpaw who relies on his strength and a lanky 6-foot-6 frame. Dickey is a knuckle-balling righty who succeeds on endurance and control. Price is 27, while Dickey is 11 years his senior.

One thing they do share? 

The two starters grew up just 30 miles apart, Dickey in Nashville and Price in Murfreesboro, Tenn. The Rays starter later attended Vanderbilt University, which is located in Nashville. So, we're thinking both guys are probably huge music fans.

What could be blaring through their speakers tonight? Is it Nashville-born Edwin Starr? Tennessee's own Ke$ha? Or could they just be partyin' in the USA? Yeah, it's gotta be Miley:
