Last weekend, the 2018 edition of the CCMA Awards took place at the FirstOntario Centre in Hamilton, Ontario. The show was absolutely spectacular with performances, tributes, and more from Canadian and international stars alike. Before the festivities began, the top names in country music walked the red carpet to interact with fans, pose for photos, and of course show off their best outfits!

In no particular order, check out some of our favourite looks from the 2018 CCMA red carpet! Let us know on social media who you thought had the best look at this year’s CCMA Awards!

 

Jessica Mitchell

Before she brought the crowd to tears and left us speechless with her performance of Heart of Glass Jessica Mitchell took part in the CCMA red carpet festivities and left us speechless there as well!

 

High Valley

The two brothers from Alberta looked super sharp on the CCMA red carpet and their “Walk The Line” Medley with fellow stars Paul Brandt, Jess Moskaluke, and Hunter Brothers did not disappoint either!

Dallas Smith

No doubt one of the coolest people in the business, Dallas Smith showed us his swag on the CCMA red carpet before taking the stage with Terri Clark for their performance of One Drink Ago.

 

Terri Clark

The You’re Easy On the Eyes singer had quite the weekend in Hamilton. Terri Clark was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame, performed on the CCMA stage, and absolutely shined on the red carpet!

 

Shania Twain

The Canadian icon makes a presence everywhere she goes and the CCMAs are no exception. This year’s host took home multiple awards and we can definitely say she had one of the best looks on the red carpet!

Where do I even begin… What a night! It was such an honour to host the @ccmaofficial Awards and to get to celebrate so much incredible talent in country music. Congratulations to all of the nominees and winners, thank you to the CCMA and everyone involved, thank you for the Generation Award, the top-selling album award, the Fans’ Choice Award… I feel so fortunate. But mostly, thank you to the fans who embraced my music and encouraged me to persevere, you guys are the reason why I’m still here and why I’m still loving what I do. There are no words to truly express my gratitude to all of you for your continues support and love throughout the years, of which it’s been many! Thank you, I love you! 📷: George Pimental Photography

Canada’s newest favourite family really showed the nation how slick they look walking the CCMA red carpet. We can’t wait for next year to see the Hunter Brothers in action again!

The up-and-coming stars looked stunning on the CCMA red carpet and we’re sure that we’ll be seeing them here for years to come!

Jojo Mason

Jojo Mason had everyone talking as he walked the red carpet with his red bowtie and shiny red shoes. That’s a tough look to pull off but he completely nailed it!

Keith Urban and Lindsay Ell

The Australian mega-star is one of the biggest names in country music and has been on more red carpets than we can count. We think this one was his best yet! Lindsay Ell has been making Canada proud by churning out amazing music and will be performing with Keith on the Canadian leg of his Graffiti U World Tour. Go get ’em Lindsay!
