It’s country music’s biggest night! The 2020 Country Music Association Awards are going down tonight, November 11. In anticipation of the exciting awards ceremony and all of the incredible performances, we thought it would be fun to prepare for the night by taking a look back at some of our favorite red carpet gowns from over the years! From country darlings like Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert to celebrity guests like Karlie Kloss and Bebe Rexha, there have been plenty of stars who graced the CMAs red carpet in beautiful gowns.

Carrie has always rocked the CMA red carpet with her own fashionable flair. In 2015, the singer took on one of the trickiest colors of the rainbow, donning a peach toned gown with glimmering jewelry. The dress had a plunging neckline along with a peplum cut around Carrie’s waist that showed off her figure perfectly. But in 2016, Carrie went for a more dramatic look. The “Southbound” songstress wore a beautiful blush colored dress that glimmered from head to toe. Check out the look below!

Of course, Carrie isn’t the only one who can stun a red carpet. Before she seemingly went pop, Taylor Swift was something of a country darling. At the 2016 ceremony, Taylor fashioned a look that was super modern and daring. The “Cardigan” hit maker donned a black and sheer gown with a slit in the front that went up to above Taylor’s knees. Her dress also featured a cutout around her torso and she made a bold statement with her makeup. It was a totally different look from Taylor’s 2013 ensemble. At the 47th Annual CMA Awards, Taylor wore a dramatic red gown that was so romantic. The dress sparkled with glittering embellishments throughout, while Taylor pulled her hair back for a classic look.

Someone who can always blend a classic silhouette with modern flair is none other than Miranda Lambert. At the 2015 CMA Awards, Miranda sported some pink tips at the end of her blonde hair, while donning a gorgeous black dress with a contemporary cut. The beautiful gown cinched Miranda’s waist perfectly and she looked flawless. But the singer went fun in flirty at the 2019 ceremony.

While hitting up the press room at the 53rd annual CMA Awards, Miranda wore a gemstone encrusted mini-dress with hues of deep red and purple in an ombre blend. Miranda matched her dress with a pair of purple heels and looked totally fab. The “Settling Down” singer even sported a smokey eye to compliment her look.

We’ve seen some amazing dresses grace the CMA Awards red carpet over the years. Tonight, we’ll add a slew of new favorites! Tune in to the 2020 CMA Awards on Wednesday, November 11 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
