One of country music’s biggest nights is here. And no, it’s not the season finale of Nashville y’all! The 2015 CMT Music Awards have finally arrived, and we couldn’t be more excited to see all the real deal country glamor coming our way. Since we couldn’t think of a better place to start Internet stalking than Instagram, we put together some of our fave pre-show pics. With all the talented musicians, celeb groupies and, of course, good ol’ fashioned cowboys attending tonight’s event, there are lots and lots of behind-the-scenes pics to obsess over.


1. Rae Lynn: That. Dress. Rae Lynn sure knows how to bring a little modern/trendy style onto the red carpet. (via @raelynnofficial)


2. Maya Jupiter and Aloe Blacc: Aloe, nominated for best performance with Lady Antebellum, is looking country cool with his wifey Maya. (via @mayajupiter)


3. Florida Georgia Line: This couple duo might have just invented the hashtag #prettyinwhite. Country chic FTW! (via @flagaline)


4. Jana Kramer: So many gowns, so little time. We’ll take whatever you didn’t pick, Jana ;) (via @kramergirl)


5. A Thousand Horses: Riding up in a ’63 Cadillac and looking like this makes these guys the most stylin’ hipster band in all of Nashville tonight. (via @athousandhorses)


6. Danielle Bradbery: As the Season 4 winner of The Voice, this lil lady has a lot going for her already. And that gilded dress and balloons just up her country glam game even more. (via @daniellebradbery)


7. Lady Antebellum: This uber-talented trio has us beyond excited for their performance… and the after-party pics of course. (via @ladyantebellum)


8. Jessie James Decker: Jamie Lynn Spears + Jessie James Decker = the cutest #selfie of the night so far. (via @jessiejamesdecker)


9. Brittany Snow: Our girl Brittany knows how to ponder the important things in life before hitting the stage to co-host the show with Erin Andrews. Because really… green apples or Galas? (via @brittsnowhuh)


10. Little Big Town: Who says that red carpet time has to be all about photos and interviews? Little Big Town knows how to have fun behind the scenes with some scoot scoot action. (via @littlebigtown)


11. Mickey Guyton: Hey Mickey, hey Mickey! We L-O-V-E that two-piece set you are donning. Where can we get one? (via @mickeyguyton)


12. Blake Shelton: When he’s not joking around with Gwen Stefani and Adam Levigne on The Voice, Blake is shredding the guitar and belting out that country twang. Here he is rehearsing with other country great Luke Bryan. (via @blakeshelton)


13. Jackie Lee: Nope, this isn’t a ride to last week’s graduation. These young kids are heading to the CMT awards in style. (via @jackieleemusic)


14. Luke Bryan: You can’t be as badass as Luke Bryan without a little practice, practice, practice, right? (via @lukebryan)


15. Kelsea Ballerini: Bold blue gown AND bright yellow pumps? We might have stumbled upon our new fave country fashionista here. (via @kelseaballerini)


16. Rumer Willis: Demi part deux has the car selfie on lock with her gorg side ‘do and lush lashes. Can’t wait to see her gown! (via @ruelarue)
