On Nov 6 the 2013 Country Music Awards aired live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. The hosts for the 47th annual CMA’s were Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood for the sixth year in a row and they were quite the dynamic duo making us laugh and keeping the ABC broadcast moving along.

The red carpet fashion for this event was stellar with couture gowns that were elegant and on-trend for an event filled with so many accolades and special moments. One of the most touching moments was when a cast of country superstars presented Taylor Swift with the Pinnacle Award. “I didn’t know there was going to be all this,” Swift said. “You’ve made me feel so special right now.”  This is only the second time this award was presented for worldwide growth and achievement. The first award went to Garth Brooks in 2005.

Jennifer Nettles of the band Sugarland was elegant and sophisticated in a Naeem Khan beaded gown, Robert Clergerie shoes, and Neil Lane jewelry.  Miranda Lambert stunned in a cobalt blue low-cut Roberto Cavalli gown, jewelry by Kimberly McDonald, and Sergio Rossi heels.
