The Hottest Looks from the 2016 CMA Awards Red Carpet
Nashville is getting lit as one of the biggest nights in country music kicks off outside the Bridgestone Arena. All eyes are on the red carpet for the 2016 Country Music Association Awards as performers, presenters, and attendees make their way inside.
It’s sure to be a big night for the show, which is celebrating its milestone 50th anniversary. Nicole Kidman made a gorgeous statement in a rich dusty rose ruffled Gucci gown with pleats, while Miranda Lambert's sexy plunging gown stopped everyone in their tracks. Underwood, who is nominated for both Album of the Year and Entertainer of the Year this year, made a stunning arrival in a light pink Michael Cinco gown with a deep halter neck and full skirt, encrusted with Swarovski crystals, pearls, and scattered organza flowers. The singer is expected to quick-change into at least 11 ensembles, guaranteeing one stylish event. Paisley, for his part, will also step it up: “It’s a big deal, 50 years,” Paisley told Southern Living. “This is the year to show some class. I will be wearing a tuxedo.”
