Best Dressed at the 2017 ACM Awards

It was all about expressing yourself on the red carpet at the 2017 ACM Awards. Artists bucked traditional tuxedoes and gowns for dresses and jackets that often paid tribute to the West Coast and Hollywood. These Best Dressed photos show that country music’s hottest singers win when they play into what fans know about them.

Over 100 stars walked the 2017 ACM Awards red carpet on Sunday (April 2), with plenty of eyes on singers like Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert, plus Tim McGraw, Thomas Rhett and wife Lauren and Sam Hunt. Not one of those usual Best Dressed nominees make this list. Newcomers stood out again and again — yes, it was the next generation most willing to be daring.

The move paid off for these four singers, but not for everyone. Click below to see the worst dressed — and there were a few duds. The simple variety of red carpet gowns, skirts, suits and slacks was stunning. Traditional was hard to find (isn’t it always), and when it appeared, it wasn’t on the singers you’d expected it from.
