Country music’s biggest stars were out in full force last night for the 52nd Annual CMA Awards! There were a ton of highlights including Keith Urban taking home Entertainer of the Year, Carrie Underwood revealing she’s having a second son, and Brad Paisley debuting a brand new song.

As with any award show, everyone comes dressed in their best attire and this year’s CMA Awards definitely weren’t an exception. From Kelsea Ballerni’s eye-popping dress to Thomas Rhett’s classy jacket, the red carpet had it all!

Scroll down to check out Top Country’s list of the best looks from the 2018 CMA Awards!

Carly Pearce

Carly Pearce looked like the star she is by rocking a Monique Lhuillier dress (in collaboration with Rue La La) and shoes from Giuseppe Zanotti. We can’t wait to see what Carly has in store for us on the next red carpet!

 

Thomas Rhett

Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins always own the red carpet and we didn’t expect anything less from the couple at this year’s CMA Awards!
