Red Carpet Rundown: The Gowns of the Academy of Country Music Awards

Posted on March 08, 2022

Darlings, the Academy of Country Music Awards were last night and while there were plenty of cowpokes and just regular folk in attendance, we’re really only here for the gowns. We can only be as God made us, after all. Bring on the Yeehaw Eleganza, ladies!


Carly Pearce in Vera Wang

Oof. Well, she seems pleased with it and that’s all that matters. Haha, not really. The waist hits at a terrible spot and the color is too prom.




Carrie Underwood in Dolce & Gabbana

Country Barbie gets a little sassy! Your girl hasn’t skipped leg day and she would like you to know that. We can’t find fault, except with the label. And the wiggy hair.




Dolly Parton in Steve Summers

Beyond reproach and above critique, forever and for always. A queen.




Gabby Barrett in Mélique Street

You serve us that sci-fi lizard queen realness, girl. We are LIVING for this unexpectedly hard serve.




Kelsea Ballerini in Saint Laurent

It’s a weensy bit stripper-tastic, but we don’t mind that. It’s the weird hem length that bugs here. That skirt needs another couple of inches on it and a slit to the hip. If you’re gonna go there, why half-ass it?




Lainey Wilson in Manuel Couture

We love it. This is exactly the kind of couture we want to see at a country awards event. Our only critique is that the belt really doesn’t coordinate that well with it.





Maren Morris in Vintage Dior

Ew, no. Skin bag.





Mickey Guyton in Markarian

Is it us or are weird hem lengths suddenly all the rage? We wish we could say we like this, but it’s a little too generic and shapeless.
