CMT Awards 2018: Red carpet arrivals

One of country's biggest nights!

The 2018 CMT Awards brought together the most beloved names in country music on Wednesday night for a celebratory, fun affair.

Carrie Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini, Darius Rucker, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line were among the major country acts that stepped out for the big occasion, and it was Underwood who completely stole the show on the red carpet with her plunging yellow mini dress.

Blake Shelton also garnered smiles on the carpet ahead of the ceremony by opting to pose with former "The Voice" contestant Cassadee Pope, who became the show's first female winner back in 2012. She was on Team Blake! Shelton's girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, did not attend the show.

Also there were Darius Rucker, who brought along his adorable son, Lauren Alaina, Kelly Clarkson, Cole Swindell, The Backstreet Boys and hosts for the evening, Little Big Town.
