The show is set to feature performances from country acts like Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert and Luke Bryan, as well as Top 40 stars like The Chainsmokers and Jason Derulo.

"American Idol" alum Kellie Pickler was one of the first stars to show up, rocking a glimmering red gown with a gold train and sheer paneling on the sides. "Chrisley Knows Best" star Savannah Chrisley was also an early arrival, opting for a shorts-suit with a cleavage-baring black top underneath.

Check back for all of the CMT Music Awards 2017 red carpet arrivals:

Miranda Lambert was also a definite red carpet highlight, rocking a sexy black mini dress that showed off her toned legs. Jason Aldean and his wife, Brittany Kerr, also stepped out for the big occasion, debuting Kerr's growing baby bump.

Carrie Underwood may have stolen the show in her sheer, glimmering ensemble, though Thomas Rhett and Lauren Gregory put on quite the adorable display for the cameras.

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban matched in sexy, all-black ensembles, and Urban made sure to whisper sweet nothings into his Oscar-winning wife's ear while they posed for the photographers.
