Carrie Underwood shows off three different looks as she commands attention at the 2022 CMA Awards


Carrie Underwood lit up the 56th Annual Country Music Association Awards on Wednesday evening in Nashville, Tennessee, when she arrived in a stunning gray–blue dress.

The 39-year-old country queen showed off her toned legs in the look, which featured a high slit, while accompanied by her husband Mike Fisher, 42.

Carrie kept all eyes on her when she returned to the stage with two new ensembles, including a sparkling green-and-pink dress and an edgy black outfit decorated with dangling fringe.

Carrie’s dress featured tightly ruched material, including darker satin fabric and a lighter sheer fabric, that was arranged in a plunging neckline highlighting her cleavage.

The dress left one arm exposed while featuring a tiny frilled sleeve around her other arm. 

The fabric was layered haphazardly around her midriff, but the dress included a high slit revealing the hitmaker’s toned legs.

The look included a modest train trailing behind her, and she arranged her blond locks in delicate waves that cascaded down her shoulders.

Her husband Mike looked dapper in a navy suit with a slim black tie, and he sported a closely cropped beard. 

The show opened with a flashback to the late country legend Loretta Lynn — who died on October 4 at 90 — accepting a CMA award decades earlier, while noting how special it was because it was her first from the organization.

Carrie was the first performer the audience saw, as she took to the stage immediately after the clip to perform Lynn’s classic tune You Ain’t Woman Enough.

The songstress contrasted the more muted colors of her red carpet look with a brilliant dress featuring a top half in a lime green shade, while the bottom half of the skirt was bubblegum pink.

The more modest dress, which included thick straps and a billowing skirt with a bustier-like bodice, was decorated in gleaming sequins that lit up the stage.

The performance signaled that Lynn was too important a figure to only be covered by one artist, so Carrie was joined by fellow country royalty Miranda Lambert and Reba McEntire, who both took their own solo turns with other songs.

Miranda looked playful in a black minidress with a fringed top and colorful embroidery, while Reba opted for a black Western suit with sparkling green fringe and accents on her sleeves and pant legs.

Leggy: Carrie was back later in the evening to perform her new single Hate My Heart. To match the more rock-oriented tone, she wore a grungy black outfit with black shorts showing off her slim legs
