There's a lot to expect when it comes to the 2017 CMA Awards red carpet.
Not only will there be sequins aplenty, tons of bling and hair as high as the heavens, but those who deserve a best dressed nod will also have taken a chance on their look. It's not enough to play it safe in just another pretty mermaid gown or well-tailored suit. We're recognizing the stars who actually took a risk. What better place is there to have a little fun than on one of country's biggest nights?
The style highlights: Fans will be channeling there inner Madeline Merlo this holiday season in a similar velvet jumpsuit. Kelsea Ballerini's floor-length Michael Kors gown fit her like a glove, but the sequin embellishments and strategic cut-out really made this look a stunner. Then, there's Jessie James Decker, who looked fit and fabulous in an off-the shoulder red dress—she rocked a baby bump like nobody's business.
Country's leading men also came to play. Chris Lane was dapper in all black, but the surprising winner was Duck Dynasty star Si Robertson. At 69 years young, the reality star proved you can have fun with your getup. Fashion is about expressing your personality, after all.
