All the Glitziest Looks from the 2017 CMA Awards
The 2017 CMA Awards have arrived, and tonight, we’re tipping our (10-gallon!) hats to all the flashiest, glitziest style the country set is mustering up on the red carpet. Click through to see which looks caught our eye, and be sure to keep checking back as stars arrive for the main event, airing at 8/7c on ABC.
P!nk: The singer’s “Setting the World on Fire” duet with Kenny Chesney may have lost out for its nomination for musical event of the year to Glen Campbell and Willie Nelson, but she *definitely* won on the red carpet in this jaw-dropping tiered tulle Monsoori creation that had us reminiscing on Kacey Musgraves’ 2016 CMAs style. Bonus points for bringing her daughter, Willow Sage, as her date in a tiara fit for a princess! (Photo via John Shearer/WireImage/Getty)
Miranda Lambert: The “Tin Man” crooner all but shut the carpet down in her baby blue sheer and tulle Tony Ward ensemble with a thin black belt and beaded appliqué. *Slow claps* (Photo via Michael Loccisano/Getty)
Faith Hill and Tim McGraw: McGraw wasn’t content to let his longtime love steal all the thunder, posing in a standout red tux jacket and black cowboy hat next to Hill, who looked plenty chic herself in a black beaded one-shouldered column gown with ruffled neck detail.

Madison Marlow and Taylor Dye: Marlow was the ying to singing partner Dye’s yang in her svelte red Anne Barge dress with a thigh-high cutout and JN Jewels; with Dye rocking a black lace slip number with a nude underlay and JN Jewels. (Photo via Michael Loccisano/Getty)

Carrie Underwood: The evening’s hostess went the mostess brought the drama in a va-va-voom off-the-shoulder navy Fouad Sarkis gown with uber-dramatic puffed sleeves and a mermaid train, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, Butani earrings, and rings by Anabela Chan and Hearts on Fire.

Meghan Linsey: You’d never know that just eight months prior, Linsey was nearly unrecognizable after suffering a bite to the face from a brown recluse spider: Girl looked positively gorgeous on tonight’s carpet in her one-shouldered, black sequined gown with asymmetric choker neckline.

Brittany Snow: The Pitch Perfect 3 actress stuck to the quickly developing carpet theme of red, white, and blue, opting for the latter with a satin, royal blue, off-the-shoulder ballgown with some side cutouts added for intrigue. She also added some bling in the form of some Alezan earrings, JN Jewels, and Vardui Kara rings. (Photo via Michael Loccisano/Getty)
Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd: The newly engaged Grammy winner pulled out all the stops with this head-to-toe silver Francesco Scognamiglio look, including thigh slits, a tiered, peekaboo fishnet bottom, and plenty of beading besides. (Photo via John Shearer/WireImage/Getty)
Kimberly Williams-Paisley and Brad Paisley: Underwood’s co-host for the evening, Paisley, and the You Get Me actress ruled on high as the king and queen of the red carpet, with the former looking dapper in an all-black dress shirt, suit jacket, jeans, and white cowboy hat, and his lady looking lovely in a silver off-the-shoulder teacup dress with a high-low hemline and floral embroidery.
