The CMT Music Awards descended on Nashville, Tennessee, on Wednesday night, boasting some of the best achievements in country music in the United States. Yet, as fans waited in anticipation to find out who would pick up awards for their contributions to the genre, the red carpet dazzled with stunning gowns and beaming faces.
