Kelsea Ballerini looked glamorous on Wednesday night as she arrived at the 57th Annual CMA Awards with her boyfriend Chase Stokes in Nashville, Tennessee.
The singer, 30, showed off her tanned and toned legs by rocking a sexy pink one-shoulder dress with a thigh-high slit.
She strolled the red carpet beside the Outer Banks hunk, 31, in a pair of blush toned sandals with pink satin roses on the heels.
Her long blonde hair tumbled down her back and chest in glamorous waves.
Kelsea — who has been dating Chase since February — is nominated for Female Vocalist Of The Year as well as Album Of The Year for her EP Rolling Up the Welcome Mat.

As for her makeup, the Miss Me More hitmaker popped on a bold red lip and dusted her eyelids with shimmery shadow.
Chase looked handsome as he posed with his arm wrapped around Kelsea’s waist for the cameras.
The actor rocked an all-black outfit comprised of a fitted jacket, flared slacks and a button-up shirt.
His full brunette hair was brushed back off his face and his facial hair looked freshly groomed.
Kelsea confirmed that she’d move on from her ex-husband Morgan Evans, who she divorced in August 2022 after nearly five years of marriage, with Chase during a candid interview on the Call Her Daddy podcast in February.
She told host Alex Cooper that she made the first move in their romance, by sliding into the hunky actor’s DM’s.
They’ve since attended countless red carpets as a couple and often feature one another on their respective Instagram pages.
The night before Wednesday’s CMA Awards, Kelsea shared a brief clip of her and Chase cuddling in bed with their dogs.
They’d flown into Nashville together and were gearing up for the festivities that would take place the following day.
Earlier this week, Chase gushed over how ‘proud’ he is of Kelsea while attending the 2023 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City.
Speaking to PEOPLE, the Maryland native admitted that he got very emotional while watching her perform her first-ever arena show as a headliner in her hometown.
‘I’m still recouping my hearing from how loud it was … for her to go back to her hometown and to sell out an arena, like that stage — it was the coolest thing.
