I particularly love doing Country red carpets because they’re the only awards shows where the men have equally as sassy outfits, if not more eye-grabbing than their lady counterparts. Don’t eva try to hold a country man down with their loud print suits and staple headwear. So even though most of you look like you scrapped together suits from the leftovers at a seamstress, I applaud you for keeping things spicy and going there instead of sticking to a boring black tux.
Exhibit A of above rant. Shiny teal patterned jacket, chesties, and Jimmy Neutron hair. Thanks for being you, men of country.
I want to like this but it looks like she’s wearing a dress with spiderwebs all over it. And I really hate spiders.
Sweet black armpit flaps.
Thank God one of them wore black or this would’ve been a real eye sore sitch for Rascal. Oh wait…
Seems like maybe Kimberly bought this dress off Etsy.
I think wrapping a hot pink twin bedsheet around my body for a toga party in college was more flattering than this.
Jason will probably never make my best dressed list, so I hope he’s kewl with that.
This is the epitome of a horrendous bridesmaids dress from 1993. Also why is Erika Christensen at the CMAs?
You know what would be really wild? If Steven showed up in a slick tuxedo. That would turn some heads.
We have a TRUCKER HAT. I REPEAT, A TRUCKER HAT. And once you get past the shock of 2003 Ashton Kutcher, a white fedora, matching jacket combo deal.
Not really understanding this idea of sheer paneled legs. Just wear a short dress and call it a day.
No thank you, Jennifer Nettles.
He’s already pretty creeps and then throws on an embroidered jacket so that didn’t really help things.
The hair ruins everything for me here. Gelled pompadours AREN’T cool.
This dress reminds me of a mix between banana peels and leaves, either way it’s too weird
This is really classy and elegant, especially for 1 out of 100 country awards. You go, grl.
Why couldn’t the Conrad sisters perform? THAT would be must-see TV.
Kacey threw me a curveball tonight. No arts and crafts accessories, no beehive hairstyle, she just looks pretty.
Beard’s got a weird jacket vibe going on but leather jacket Osborne is doing all sorts of things for me.
LeAnn with a sassy little frock. Showing Carrie she’s not the only country singer with stems!
Thomas Rhett was out shined by his smokeshow wife and her dress that I’m obsessed with.
What do you do when you’re about to see your ex-husband in front of the cameras for the first time? Dye your hair pink, duh.
A fall-influenced suit. Hell yeah.
I’m willing to overlook the baseball cap for this spicy burgundy suit on Cole.
Slow whistle for the future Mrs. Jeter. Hot diggity damn.
Everyone knows all JT needs to do is show up and he makes my best dressed list. Shameless.
Luke never fails to dazzle me but all I need from his is a white tee and baseball cap.
Latest installment of “if you guest star on Nashville you get an invite to the CMA’s.” I don’t hate it. More Riley Smith for me!
I may hate Hootie gone country but I can respect tha hell outta this bloutfit.
I can get all down with this salsa number.
Didn’t get enough hot pink tonight and I like this one a lot. David Nail you look nice as well.
All because two people fell in love…they get invites to every Hollywood event ever. All in on Shawn’s suit, hard pass on Kaitlyn’s dress. I’ve seen a bajillion better outfits on her.
Thompson Square looking glam city.
Usually the one sleeve thing is a little jarring but I’m alright with this scandal.
If you follow Jana on insta, you would know she’s preggers because she makes sure to directly comment on her bump in every post so it makes perfect sense that her hand is essentially glued to her baby belly on the red carpet. Also fist bump for putting the pregnancy rack on display.
Princess Kelsea. Glad she made it to the CMA’s this year because her songs are fire flames and she’s a little cutie.
Ignore the stupid pose, ignore the stupid pose.
The Sleek Perry
I love this peacoat material jacket. Sophisticated AND trendy.
I laughed out loud when I saw Perry Bro 1 with his messy bun and realized this is EXACTLY what my hair looks like when I toss it up at the end of the day. Not sure if that’s a commentary on me or him.
Fave Look of the Night:
She may have 12 outfit changes throughout the evening but her red carpet look did it for me.
