Carrie Underwood Sizzles at CMT Artists of the Year 2012

The CMT Artists of the Year 2012 special (Country music awards) was held in Franklin, Tennessee on Monday, December 3rd. The stars stepped out in style for a musical evening and graced the Red Carpet with their appearance for the event.

One of the most famous country music singers to shine at the CMT Artists of the Year 2012 Special was American Idol winner – Carrie Underwood.

The singer who has given us a string of hits ever since her American Idol victory in 2005, also takes an equal amount of care to put a lot of thought into her dressing, something that we witness each time she steps out.

At the 2012 CMT Artists of the Year Special, Carrie Underwood donned a black jumpsuit by Katherine Kid with sheer georgette covering her neck line. She paired it up with a sexy pair of heels and a stylish clutch. The star, who usually dresses up in gowns and cocktail dresses for shows like these, gave us a startling surprise with her chic new attire. And we’ve got to admit that we simply loved it.

Carrie Underwood, 29, was joined on the Red Carpet by her ice hockey player hubby Mike Fisher.

She later graced the stage with a lovely musical performance for the evening.

The event was hosted by the singers of the country music band – The Rascal Flatts and actress Hayden Panettiere of Nashville fame.

While Hayden was all donned in an orange cocktail dress as she played the perfect hostess to the event, she came dressed in another ensemble, looking like a pretty princess in a pink evening gown, with a slight show of cleavage and a cut placed in the centre of her thigh.

The most famous country music boy band, The Rascal Flatts boys Joe Don Rooney, Gary LeVox and Jay DeMarcus were dressed in the same outfit all evening, unlike their co host and they all rocked dressed in black.

Miranda Lambert stepped on the Red Carpet of the CMT artists of the year awards dressed in a dazzling short dress with sparkling golden pumps to complete her glittery look for the evening.

Singer Cheryl Crow graced the event styled in a black evening gown with a long accessory dangling from her neck. We guess you can’t really go wrong dressed in black.

All the male artists who attended the event found beauty in black. Black trousers, black shoes, black jackets and black shirts! One Republic artist Ryan Tedder spruced up his black look with a brown and black plaid jacket over his shirt.

Kacey Musgraves sizzled in a short black dress with golden and crystal stones embedded on it for a starry effect.

The CMT Artists of the Year evening was certainly a star studded event filled with musical performances from the fraternity of Country Music. Among the artists who performed were Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Eric Church, Luke Bryan and many others who graced the event with their presence and support for the country music fraternity.
