Country music now has four award shows with the addition of tonight’s (9/28) People’s Choice Country Awards. Like the CMT Music Awards, this award show is completely based on fan votes.
The red- carpet is always fun, and a chance for country stars and newcomers to show off their style. Newcomer MaRynn Taylor told me earlier this week that she can’t wait to walk the red carpet. She’s looking forward to seeing who she bumps into and meets for the first time in the country music community. She also walked red carpets at the CMT Music Awards and the ACM Awards in May. Tonight (9/2*) MaRynn wore a sleek black dress and shined with her excitement and never ending big smile.
Over the years, red carpet looks in country music have had some real moments, and even the guys get into the fashion action now and then. Tim McGraw and his wife Faith Hill walked the recent ACM Honors in Nashville along with two of their daughters, and their black and white matching family outfits made many publication’s top stories the next day.
Big stars tend to walk the red carpet in the last ten minutes before the show gets underway, and at each show, fans and media alike can’t wait to see what Carrie Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini and her beau Chase Stokes, and Blake’s wife, Gwen Stefani, will be wearing. Let’s be honest: we love Blake, but until he met Gwen, he didn’t wear anything but flannel shirts and the color blue. While he dresses better with Stefani by his side, he keeps it simple with a jacket, jeans, and boots.
As we get to once again celebrate country music tonight, we look at some of the red-carpet looks from the first People’s Choice Country Awards.
