Country music fans gathered to watch the 2019 Country Music Association (CMA) Awards on Nov. 13. For the 12th consecutive year, the star-studded show was hosted by Carrie Underwood. but instead of Brad Paisley by her side she was flanked by icons Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton. Highlights included Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus' "Old Town Road, which is the longest-running No. 1 song on Billboard's Hot 100, and Underwood being nominated for the Entertainer of the Year award along with Eric Church, Chris Stapleton, Keith Urban and Garth Brooks (who ended up winning the trophy).
Still, we enjoy these shows as much for the red carpet as for the performances, eagerly watching country musicians and their partners step out together in their finest designer garb. This year, not only did performers show off some of the latest styles, but they also proved that celebrity love is very much alive (at least in Nashville).
Here are just a few of the sweetest and best-dressed couples from 2019's country showdown.
