The Craziest Outfits In American Country Music Award History Have Been So Glam — PHOTOS
There is one thing you can count on when it comes to country music, and that is super flashy fashion. As demonstrated by the American Country Music Awards' history, big hair, sparkly dresses, and bedazzled cowboy boots mean our favorite country crooners never disappoint on the red carpet. To prove just how good country red carpets can be, I’ve rounded up some of the most memorable and outrageous looks from past ACMs.
Whether or not you like country music, it simply doesn’t matter. If you love a bold sartorial moment, this ACM red carpet flashback is for you. From daring prints to bright colors and a bevy of sequins, country singers never cease to amaze me with their statement-making styles. While the bigger is better mentality has been replaced by minimalism in the last couple of years, country music stars seem to have missed the memo, as their hair is still high and their outfits are, to say the least, pretty spectacular.
If you are a big fan of country and plan to tune into the April 3 ACMs, or if you just like a little bedazzle every now and again, check out what might possibly be the most colorful and sparkly red carpet of all time along with its craziest looks to date.
1. Steven Tyler
Leave it to Tyler to wear a bold ensemble as well as colored lenses on the red carpet.
2. Shania Twain
Twain swapped out the cowboy boots for these knee-high versions.
3. Frankie Ballard
I'm not quite sure what look Ballard was going for here, but the blazer was definitely statement-making.
Sparkly Dress + Cowboy Boots = Country Best.
5. Kimberly Schlapman And Karen Fairchild
I'm not sure, but I think the Little Big Town singers were going for a Saint Barts meets Nashville vibe.
6. Frankie Ballard
Ballard continues to amaze me yet again.
7. Tobi Lee
Lee looked like a punk country princess in this eclectic outfit.
8. Kaley Cuoco
Cuoco's ensemble seemed as though it belonged at an MTV music event rather than the ACMs, but that's why I love it.
9. Kacey Musgraves
Musgraves went full-on country with big hair, big shoes, and a big dress.
10. Nicole Kidman
Nicole Kidman almost always gets red carpet dressing right, but I'm just not so sure about those fur shoulder warmers.
11. Faith Hill
Now that's a statement necklace.
12. Rascal Flatts
Spiked hair and a sequin blazer: It must be a country red carpet.
13. Danielle Peck
Peck went all-out with this bright yellow mermaid gown and, of course, sparkly jewelry.
Hopefully this year's ACMs will be just as sparkly.
