CMA Awards Red Carpet Styles Through the Years (Photos)

The CMA Awards bring out the biggest stars in country music annually.

Veterans like Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert are expected to be joined by newcomers like Kelsea Ballerini this year in Nashville.

For a major awards show like this, its always fascinating to see how a star’s style has evolved.

Take Carrie Underwood, one of tonight’s hosts.

In her first CMAs appearance in 2005, she was a bubbly “American Idol” winner making a name for herself in the music business. Fast forward one decade later, and she’s one of the undisputed queens of country — and fashion. While she has a certain trademark look, she’s taken even more fashion risks in recent years.

Miranda Lambert’s style has changed from those early days as well, but Kellie Pickler takes the prize for most different looks. Like Underwood, Pickler shot to fame as an “Idol” contestant, but she’d always surprise on the red carpet, thanks to her changing looks  (and hair colors).

To see how they and other stars like Taylor Swift and even Keith Urban have evolved, check out our CMA Awards Red Carpet Styles Through The Years gallery below.
