Country music stars stepped out to attend the 2013 Country Music Association (CMA) Awards at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee Wednesday night, October 6. Taylor Swift looked gorgeous in her Elie Saab red gown with a plunging back and a voluminous skirt. She matched it with Jimmy Choo shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
Carrie Underwood, who was set to reprise her last year's duty as a host, was equally stunning in a nude gold gown with v-neckline and a sheer bottom half. She paired it with a gold clutch and half swept back her long blonde locks. "I don't know if I'm going to be allowed to change my clothes so much this year, but I will try," she joked.
Miranda Lambert added more color to the red carpet with her blue plunging gown. She arrived with her husband Blake Shelton who looked more casual in jeans and a three-layer tux with a tie. Kellie Pickler turned heads as she flaunted her curves in a strapless black gown from Georges Chakra Couture collection.
Lucy Hale was also among the beauties who came early to the show. The "Pretty Little Liars" actress looked lovely in a halter gown with an embellished neckline. She swept her dark hair to the side and finished off her look with nude platforms, gold clutch and some gold jewels.
Kacey Musgraves also opted for nude color. Her dress looked almost similar to Underwood who was on hand to host the event with Brad Paisley that night. The nude underlining came to her thighs, leaving her bottom half visible through the white rose-embroidered sheer fabric.
Other guests included Nicole Kidman and her husband Keith Urban, Faith Hill and her hubby Tim McGraw, Sheryl Crow, Hunter Hayes, Colbie Caillat, Jason Mraz, The Band Perry, Scotty McCreery, Chris Carmack and Danielle Bradbery.
