SUNDAY, 11 NOV.
ONLY ON E!

On Wednesday all eyes were on Nashville as the 2018 CMT Awards took over the city and gave country music fans something to celebrate.

Although there were epic performances like "American Woman" by Kelly Clarkson, and "Cry Pretty" by Carrie Underwood that wasn't all that we tuned in to see. Sure, we were really excited that Blake Shelton took home two awards and that Underwood earned her 18th trophy (and continued her reign as winningest artist in CMT Awards history), but what about the fashion? There were so many amazing looks on the red carpet that we can't stop talking about. Even though some of the celebs in attendance dared to be a little too different, most of them knocked it out of the park with their looks.

Since we can't talk about them all (we could but it would take too long) we've picked our top 10 looks of the night for you to revel in. So, who won the night when it came to style? Well, for starters Underwood. The blonde beauty stunned in a Nicolas Jebram yellow dress that had embellishment throughout and showed off her killer legs...like you'd expect anything less!

Clarkson shined equally as bright throughout the night in a black, sleek and chic gown with bold diamond accessories to really make us notice her. "I Hate Love Songs" singer Kelsea Ballerini also rocked black at the show, but she opted for a little more sex appeal. She wore a Brandon Maxwell sequined crop top and pant combo that we can't stop starring at.

The Voice alum Danielle Bradbery went with a LWD and looked white hot as she posed on the carpet. The boys also came out to play for the night and of course Luke Bryan looked dapper as he smiled for the cameras.

The ladies however were the real stars of the show, especially Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles. She donned a silky frock that was both sophisticated and sexy. "The Road Less Traveled" singer Lauren Alaina opted for a more structured look with a lavender dress that was modern and bold without being too over the top. Even though Lindsay Vonn is not a singer she did make a bold statement while watching the show by wearing a gorgeous red gown that fit her perfectly.

Another Voice alum Raelynn looked stunning in white as she walked the carpet in a shorts-and-blazer combo. Plus, she showed a little skin and glitz with her undershirt for the perfect mix of fun and fashionable. Last, but certainly not least was Dustin Lynch. Not only did the "Small Town Boy" crooner wear a cowboy hat, which we always appreciate, but his jacket was a mustard suede material and it really made us stop and focus on him all night long.

Check out the rest of the red carpet arrivals from the 2018 CMT Awards below and don't forget to vote for the star you think won the red carpet now.
