The best and worst dressed stars in CMA Award history
BEST: Carrie Underwood blew away the competition in 2015 in a grecian-inspired gown with delicate detailing and a plunging neckline. (Photo by Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic)
WORST: Blake Shelton has come a long way in the fashion department. Back in 2003 "The Voice" coach was sporting a mullet, an oversized jacket and a cowboy hat, none of which did him any favors. (Photo by Frank Mullen/WireImage)
BEST: Sadly, this 2014 appearance was one of the last red carpets where Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert were a couple, but perhaps Miranda already knew this and wanted to give us a memory that would last. This pink, form-fitting gown showed off her insane figure and was the epitome of glamour. Well done, Miranda. (Photo by Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic)
BEST: Talk about star power! Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban were the essence of classy and cool at the 44th Annual CMA Awards. (Photo by Larry Busacca/Getty Images)
WORST: One would hope that country gents might have evolved past jeans and a cowboy hat as a "dressy ensemble" at A-list awards shows, but Jason Aldean clearly didn't get the message in 2014. Will give him a hat tip for staying true to his roots, but that's it. (Photo by Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic)
BEST:  Lady in red! "Red" singer Taylor Swift reaffirmed her country music roots with this gorgeous gown with simple detailing and a to-die for train. Her polished locks and red lips completed the perfect red carpet ensemble. (Photo by Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic)
WORST: Loretta Lynn is famous for her ball gowns and incredible singing chops, but her yellow dress bedazzled with details seems more appropriate for Belle from "Beauty and the Beast' than for a country legend. (Photo by Michael Loccisano/WireImage)
BEST: She's still got it! Reba McEntire put her best foot forward in this simple, sparkly black dress in 2009 and the understated look was a total knockout. (Photo by Taylor Hill/WireImage)
WORST:  Fingerless gloves, chiffon skirts and bra-bearing shirts with sparkles don't ever belong in the same sentence. Shania Twain suffered a major fashion mishap with this disastrous ensemble in 2004. (Photo by Frank Micelotta/Getty Images)
BEST: "Pretty Little Liars" star Lucy Hale attended the 48th annual CMA Awards in this stunning red dress with a black belt, which perfectly accentuated her sleek physique. The look doesn't scream country music, but it does scream red carpet goddess. (Photo by Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic)
WORST: "If I Die Young" singers Reid Perry, Kimberly Perry and Neil Perry of The Band Perry hit the CMAs 2010 in matching black ensembles, but their semi-victorian vibe didn't seem like the right stye for the cool country show. (Photo by Michael Loccisano/WireImage)
BEST: Talk about fun! Martina McBride went for a flirty, tea-length dress in 2014, which was a nice departure from the big bulky gowns we often see at this show. (Photo by Larry Busacca/Getty Images)
WORST: Julianne Hough went for a high-drama look in 2010. We didn't love her hair color during this time and the washed-out color paired with the over-the-top dress was a little too much for our taste.  (Photo by Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic)

It may be country music's hottest night, but some stars really fizzled on the CMA Award red carpet.

From over-ruffled dressed, to gowns fit for Disney princesses, to mullets that are best hidden under a hat, there have been a fair share of style mishaps on the red carpet at the famous award show. However, to make up for some of the ridiculous looks, several stars have absolutely crushed their red carpet ensembles with dramatic dresses and sleek lines.
