On 18th April, Sunday, the 56th Academy of Country Music Awards were held in Nashville, Tennessee. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic the show was once again broadcast from multiple venues like the Ryman Auditorium and the Bluebird Cafe, including live performances from The Station Inn. Popular country stars like Maren Morris, Carly Pearce, Miranda Lambert, Mickey Guyton dressed up in some of the best outfits in order to walk the red carpet at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry.
ACM Awards 2021: Who Wore What
Country popstar Kelsea Ballerini showed up in a glazing emerald green gown by Dolce&Gabbana. It was one stunning view, as she posed on the red carpet, showing her perfectly matching green heels through the thigh-high slit. She completed the simple yet elegant look with a messy low ponytail.
The ‘More Hearts Than Mine’ singer Ingrid Andress graced the evening in a unique and trendy outfit. Wearing a silver knitted top with long fringes with a pair of faded blue trousers and light blue sandals, she managed to pull off the look with loud blue eyes and a tiny cute blue purse. Too much blue? The fashion police thought so too. Although Andress was nominated for two ACM Awards, she did not take any home.
Maren Morris, who bagged two trophies in both Song of the Year and Female Artist of the Year categories, walked the carpet in a sizzling LBV halter gown. It was a beautiful sight to behold, as the pastel velvety fabric flowed flawlessly over her body. Apart from taking home multiple trophies, she also performed alongside husband Ryan Hurd.
Carly Pearce, who took home the awards for Single of the Year and Music Event of the Year, showed up looking petite in pink, as she wore a bright pink gown by Monique Lhuillier. She perfectly carried the one-sleeve shoulder look, completing it with cute pink strappy heels.
Canadian singer Tenille Arts stuns the crowd at the ACM Awards in a brownish Dolce&Gabbana gown. Arts also stood as a nominee in the New Female Artist of the Year category.
Bringing the fun onto the stage, Miranda Lambert and Elle King’s twinning stone-studded leather outfits turned heads. The duo set the show going by acing the opening performance with their duet song ‘Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home).’ The outfits also had long, floor-length fringes attached to the hands. While King had blue coloured fringes, Lambert had pinkish ones, both looking ready to hit the stage!
Singer Carie Underwood decided to bless the audience with her appearance onstage in a divine sparkly champagne-coloured gown. Although she skipped the red carpet walk, she continued to carry her reputation of dazzling at awards shows by stunning the audience during her performance in that beautiful dress.
Other country stars also walked the carpet with grace and poise, making the show run headlines the next morning.
The 56th Academy of Country Music Awards was hosted by Mickey Guyton, who became the first black woman to host the show alongside Keith Urban.
Blanco Brown’s Fashionable Tribute To DMX
Country stars showed up to the event in great style and confidence, but the most emotional yet trendy outfit was donned by American singer and record producer Blanco Brown, who paid a tribute to the late hip-hop star DMX in fashion. He wore a leather jacket bearing DMX’s picture on it, pairing it with a yellow beanie and a leather bag.
The American singer had dropped his greatest hit and also his debut, ‘The Git Up’ in 2019 and topped the charts as an emerging artist, followed by his duet ‘Just The Way’ with Parmalee which went on to touch the number one rank on Billboard country charts. The singer appeared in his first public appearance on Sunday after a brutal motorcycle accident last year in August, which had led to a 12-hour surgery.
Speaking at the event, the singer noted that he had suffered many serious injuries and is still taking time to recover. He also added that he hopes to hit the road again this summer, providing that his body heals to its fullest in the meantime.
