Cowboy meets couture! Danielle Bradbery and more stars put their spin on country chic while walking the 2022 CMT Music Awards red carpet.
From the moment celebrities arrived at the Nashville awards show on Monday, April 11, it was clear that the musicians knew how to bring the heat — and the killer fashion.
With style icons like Carrie Underwood, Maren Morris and Miranda Lambert in attendance, the CMT red carpet was the place to be on Monday night.
For the second year in a row, Kelsea Ballerini cohosted the star-studded event. In 2021, the “Half of My Hometown” songstress, 28, ran the show alongside country crooner Kane Brown.
On Monday, however, she shared the hosting duties with Hollywood star Anthony Mackie. Her male counterpart wasn’t the only switch for this year’s show as Ballerini tested positive for COVID-19 days prior to the event, causing her to co-run the show from her home in Tennessee. Despite the cohosting shakeup, the “Heartfirst” singer’s awards show style didn’t skip a beat.
Ballerini previously channeled her inner Zenon from Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century with her metallic pink pleather LaQuan Smith jumpsuit and strappy sandals on the March 2021 carpet. “Peace, love, & pink pleather ✨💖✌🏼,” she captioned a snap of her CMT look last year.
For this year’s ceremony, the “Hole in the Bottle” songstress again slayed the carpet, this time from her own makeshift runway at home, before putting on her hosting hat.
Ballerini’s fellow musicians didn’t disappoint either, including Bradbery, 25, who made fans do serious double take when she arrived. The former Voice winner looked fierce in a red crop top and cream skirt.
