The official raison d'etre may have been celebrating the best of country music, but the couples of the evening certainly stole the show at tonight's CMT Music Awards.

Love was in the air at the Bridgestone Arena, and by love we of course mean PDA. What better platform for showing off your stellar relationship than the red (or, in this case, pink) carpet at a super glamorous awards show? Sure, plenty of people showed up to see the likes of Carrie Underwoodor Blake Sheltoncompete for prizes, or Erin Andrews and J.J. Watt try their hand at hosting together, but it's never a bad time to remind the world that you're in love.

Several different twosomes took the opportunity to indulge just so, including Eric and Jessie James Decker and Luke Bryan and wife Caroline Boyer. And of course, who could forget Thomas Rhett and his facial hair—they make quite the match, too.

We've got all the updates on the night's biggest performances and biggest winners, but we couldn't shy away from devoting some time to honoring all the love on display. Check out the complete gallery of all the couples at the 2016 CMT Awards.
