The stars were out in full force on the red carpet at the 2011 CMA Awards, as seen in these pictures! Power couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill looked like the perfect compliment to one another in black and white, respectively. Country’s leading ladies looked fab in neutral tones, with co-host Carrie Underwood and Hillary Scott both sporting sparkling nude colored gowns. Miranda Lambert and Martina McBride both wore classic flashy black looks, Lambert in a ball gown and McBride in a tasteful pant suit.

The red carpet was not totally devoid of color, especially if Laura Bell Bundy and Thompson Square‘s Shawna Thompson had anything to do with it! Both ladies were walking the red carpet in bright blue and purple tones … though we think Ms. Bundy may have forgotten her pants somewhere. Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles also looked fab in her muted olive-toned gown.

And of course, all the fellas of the country world — including Dave Haywood and Charles Kelly of Lady Antebellum — were looking dapper in tasteful suits with small pops of visual interest.
