Wednesday night was a big night in Nashville. Country music stars dazzled on the red carpet before the 2018 CMA Awards and we’ve got the photos to prove it.
The CMA Awards buzz started this summer when some of the nominees were announced from right here in Nashville. Luke Bryan was on hand to help reveal the nominees live from his bar, Luke’s 32 Bridge Food + Drink. Dan + Shay and Sugarland also helped to make the big announcement. The biggest takeaway, and complaint from country fans, was that the stacked Entertainer of the Year category didn’t include any females. See the nominees here.
The performers and the presenters this year also got people excited leading up to the show. Although there was a lot of excitement, it didn’t get real until the artists started to walk the red carpet on a cold Nashville night.
