CMA Awards 2017: Red carpet arrivals

Nashville's glitziest night!

The 51st Annual CMA Awards kicked off on Wednesday night and the star-studded affair -- hosted by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley for the 10th straight year -- featured appearances from country music's biggest stars.

Carrie Underwood strayed away from her usual glittering looks and nearly stole the show in a dramatic, plunging indigo gown with a fishtail silhouette. Fellow country queen Miranda Lambert was just as stunning in a sheer baby blue gown. Both leading ladies brought their significant others with them.

Country music's most handsome men also brought their style A-games. Keith Urban hit the red carpet solo -- without his Oscar-winning wife Nicole Kidman -- in his signature casual spin on black tie, rocking a t-shirt and sneakers with his glittery suit. Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker, Brad Paisley and more men were similarly dapper.

More stars at the 2017 CMAs were Maren Morris, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Pink, Niall Horan, Cam, Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett.
