The Best and Worst Dressed Celebs at the 2021 CMAs: Red Carpet Photos of the Country Music Awards

The best and worst dressed celebrities at the 2021 Country Music Awards definitely made a statement. Stars like Miranda LambertMickey Guyton and more walked the CMAs red carpet in stunning fashions, while others had a bit of a wardrobe miss. 

The 55th annual awards show, which took place on Wednesday, November 10, promised to be bigger than ever after the Country Music Association majorly scaled things down last year amid the coronavirus pandemic.

For country music’s biggest night, it’s only fitting that icon Luke Bryan was tapped as host for the glitzy show at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. 

“Being in front of the TV a lot with American Idol has gotten me more comfortable with the role of doing these things. I’m excited to be in the role and be confident in the role,” the “Knockin’ Boots” singer said about hosting the big show on November 8. “You don’t ever want to be out there and you’re so nervous and freaked out that you can’t do a great job, which I’ll still be nervous and freaked out.”

The “Play It Again” artist will also be performing during the show within the star-studded lineup. Also taking the stage will be Miranda, Eric Church, Gabby Barrett, Jimmie Allen, Luke Combs and more. Other performers include Jennifer Hudson, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Thomas Rhett and the Zac Brown Band. 

It’s noted that Carrie Underwood and Jason Aldean will be doing a “special collaboration” during the show in addition to other surprising duos and trios.

The star power isn’t stopping there. Some presenters that will make an appearance during the CMAs are American Idol judges Katy Perry and Lionel Richie, Trisha Yearwood, Susan Sarandon, Kelsea Ballerini and actor Zachary Levi.

Of course, there are tons of awards and accolades to give away. Eric Church and Chris Stapleton are the top nominees this year with five noms each, including Entertainer of the Year. Eric won the prestigious honor last year, but there are some tough contenders in the category, including Luke Combs, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood. Gabby Barrett isn’t too far behind with four nominations.
