When it comes to the Country Music Awards, celebrities always bring the glitz and the glamour.

From fun and flirty designs to ultra-glittery ensembles, it's always a treat to see what country music's biggest and brightest stars wear on the red carpet. Case in point: For the 2018 ceremony, who could forget Kacey Musgraves' enchanting black Versace pantsuit that she paired with a sheer black blouse—which had gold-beaded fringe dangling from her shoulders, front pockets and the cuffs of her sleeves.

That same year, Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles dazzled in a pretty in pink gown by Uel Camilo. Her dainty and ultra-feminine design was truly a sight to see, as it had eye-catching sequins sprinkled throughout the dress, a curve-hugging silhouette and an explosion of pink feathers that wrapped around her body.

However, last year's awards show wasn't the only time celebs made our fashion hearts burst into a million pieces.

In 2013, Carrie Underwood proved why she reigned supreme on the red carpet with her crystal and floral embellished gown by Ralph & Russo. A year after that, Miranda Lambert oozed with glamour in a blush gown by Bibhu Mohapatra that was reminiscent of old-Hollywood fashion.

Of course, we're only scratching the surface here. If you want to take a walk down memory lane, see the best lewks to ever hit the CMAs red carpet in our gallery below!
