The 2016 CMT Music Awards red carpet went underway last night at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The biggest names in country music hit the red carpet before the ceremony, and that red carpet is actually pink this year. Nominees and performers posed for the cameras and did interviews, and even non-country names were given the chance to strut their stuff. Among the stars scheduled to put in appearances were Vince Vaughn, Chad Michael Murray, Rob Riggle, Joey Lauren Adams, Danica Patrick, and Billy Gardell. Who did Fifth Harmony, Pharrell, Leona Lewis, and even Pitbull join last night. Country faces like Kelsea Ballerini, Charles Kelley, Kellie Pickler, Chris Janson were also on hand, as well as Bobby Bones and Cody Alan. That’s in addition to Dan + Shay and Cole Swindell. And who can forget superstars like Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, and Blake Shelton? However before the awards were handed out and co-hosts Erin Andrews and J.J. Watt took to the stage, we have to talk about some red carpet looks. Whether it’s designer dresses and jewelry to casual denim jeans and cowboy hats, you never know what the stars will wear for this show. Take a look at our red carpet arrivals gallery below.
