Country music fans gathered to watch the 2018 Country Music Association (CMA) Awards on Nov. 14. For the 11th consecutive year, the star-studded show was hosted by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley. Highlights included Keith Urban's win of "Entertainer of the Year," as well as buzz-worthy performances from Miranda Lambert and the gospel choir–backed Chris Stapleton, Maren Morris and Mavis Staples.
But, let’s be real, some of our favorite entertainment happened before the show, as country musicians and their partners stepped out onto the red carpet. Not only did they show off some of the latest styles, but they also proved that celebrity love is very much alive (at least in Nashville, Tenn.)
Here are just a few of the sweetest and best-dressed couples from this year’s country showdown.
