Here’s the CMA’s post where we judge people based on what they chose to wear. If you want to judge people based on what they chose to sing, please see my second installment-the recap. Here’s the deal. I got a fevah and the only prescription is more awards shows. Once I get a taste I need it to be awards season STAT. Since this is the first of 100 country music awards shows this year (all of them having strikingly similar names), country singers will have plenty of chances for redemption if they made my worst dressed list. They’ll obviously be reading this and taking my opinions into account when picking their next show outfit.
Here are the Worst Dressed:
Hillary from Lady A. What’s the deal with the V neck suspender sitch? No other words to describe that.
Gretchen Wilson staying true to her 2004 (TWO THOUSAND FOUR, DAMN) song “Redneck Woman”.
All that’s missing is a red solo cup of Fleischmann’s. Keep it classy, gurl.
Real Talk: has Hunter EVER not looked like a 15 year old sneaking into prom?
Kacey Musgraves with Elvira hair. Nuff said. Also on the right: flashback to her craft fair boots & dress combo from Grammy’s.
People don’t forget.
Sam Hunt is the newcomer hottie to the country scene. I wish he wouldn’t have ruined that with this mariachi/pirate shirt.
Scarlett from Nashville aka Clare Bowen probably let her new homeless friend with the voice of an angel dress her.
Zoey from Nashville aka Chaley Rose trying to steal the spotlight as always. Less is more.
The gr8 news is there are more best dressed than worst dressed, so I’m actually T-ing down the judgements. Here’s all the singers who got it right.
This is a worst/best combo if we’re being honest. Brantley is probably wearing a jewel encrusted affliction tee under that blazer. Brett OBVIOUSLY steals the show wearing a classy suit and accessorizing with his pure sexiness. It’s no caveman toga, but whatevs.
Carrie never disappoints. This one actually isn’t my favorite but she’ll have probably 100 outfit changes as host and I assume most of them will be top notch. Also, legs.
Cassadee Pope looking elegant and classy
RAYNA JAMES. TAMI TAYLOR. CONNIE BRITTON.
I mean seriously. With her hair she could wear a trash bag and win all the awards. Bow down, bitches.
They only made the best dressed because long hair (still don’t know his name) isn’t wearing a leather vest with no shirt underneath. He’s done that far too many times and I’ve had to choke back vomit.
Jana Kramer always looks gorgeous. Now if only she would stop ending every social media post with #love to shamelessly promote her latest single. That’s all I want for Christmas.
Josh Turner proving you don’t need a cowboy hat or sparkly vest/belt at the CMA’s. Yum.
Kimberly from The Band Perry. Simple and not being overshadowed by her brothers’ afros.
What I imagine Taylor Swift would’ve worn if she was still country (sigh)
You know, cause she’s got that red lip classic thing that Harry likes. JK-Lucy looks fab though.
Hey Nicole Kidman. THIS is how you wear lace. Maddie & Tae lookin’ like a couple of dimes.
Miranda going classic. If we’re being honest I preferred her performance dress, but the red carpet hair/makeup looks fresh.
Queen and King of country.
SWOOOONNN. Okay now please put on your black v neck and backwards hat and shake it.
That’s it for the red carpet roundup. Which one was your favorite look? Are you too busy drooling over those Southern men? Are you a guy and puking from that last statement? STAY TUNED FOR FULL SHOW RECAP. CAUSE WHY NOT?!
