Last night, some of the biggest stars packed their bags and jetted off to the country music capital of the world for one of the most sought-after nights in music — the 57th annual Country Music Awards in Nashville. The most notable names in the industry donned black-tie ensembles (with an occasional cowboy hat, of course) to celebrate chart-topping tunes from artists like Lainey Wilson and Luke Combs that have been stuck in our heads for months. It was an evening of memorable performances and top-notch fashion, but ICYMI, we rounded up the best celebrity looks from the CMAs so you can experience the star-studded event.

Many of the ensembles worn by the presenters, attendees, and performers were worthy of a sartorial yeehaw, but it was Kelsea Ballerini’s Christian Siriano gown that made us do a double take. The “Half of My Hometown” singer’s one-shoulder gown gave major Old Hollywood glamour vibes from head-to-toe and certainly set the tone for the rest of the Nashville set. Before presenting an award inside the Bridgestone Arena, Wicked actor Cynthia Erivo posed for photographers in a custom Louis Vuitton silk gown adorned with a bold multicolor print. Then, Nicole Kidman supported her husband, country singer Keith Urban, at the CMAs in a fresh-off-the-runway LBD from Coperni’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection.

And that’s not all. Ahead, the most glamorous looks from the 2023 CMAs.
