Miranda Lambert was not nominated this year, but throughout her storied career, she has earned 37 ACM Awards, most recently winning Video of the Year and the prestigious Entertainer of the Year award at the 2022 ceremonies.

 Country Elegance

Walking the red carpet with Brendan McLoughlin, her former cop turned doting partner, the Nashville star dazzled in a high-slit black dress with a plunging V-neckline. She accentuated the look with a silver belt adorned with light blue embellishments and a chic silver purse. McLoughlin, her husband of five years, matched her elegance in a sleek black suit and tie.

Online fans quickly chimed in, praising the couple for their spectacular red carpet looks.

One fan wrote, “You’re always well put together, Miranda….in country elegance. And Brendan’s suits (loved his boutonnière) complement you too.”

Another added, “He is so proud of her. She is gorgeous. Look at those smiles,” highlighting the adoration between Lambert and her husband, who married in 2019 after a whirlwind two-month romance.

A third netizen chimed in, saying, “Wow, Miranda with natural curves. A beautiful dress that shows off her beauty while still being elegant!”

But not everyone agreed that her dress was “country” or “elegant.”

Critics, taken aback by Lambert’s daring neckline, offered their scathing critiques.

“She needs to put some clothes on,” one critic wrote.

Another commented, “Wow, cover up the top a little. No need to give a free show!” while a third added, “She has always preferred trashy to classy. Not surprised.”

Yet another remarked, “So, country girls starting to dress like the other genre.”

 Cheeky Cowgirl

Later, swapping her gown for a cheeky cowgirl look, Lambert took the stage to perform the live debut of her single, “Wranglers.”

The “Kerosene” singer appeared in darker denim, a jacket adorned with fringes dangling from the arms, and a bedazzled cowboy hat with two braids peeking from the sides.

“LOVE the outfit with the chaps,” gushed one fan about the black leather chaps, also embellished with fringe, that Lambert wore over her denim jeans.

One fan enthused, “You’re the BEST dressed couple at the CMAs. And last but not least, ‘Wranglers’ was perfectly h-o-t!!! Well done.”

A second fan quipped, referencing Frisco, where the event was held, “Now, they have changed the name to Frisky, Texas.”

“They slayed that carpet like she slayed her performance,” added another.

Falling Apart at the Seams

Meanwhile, the evening wasn’t quite as seamless for McLoughlin, who experienced a wardrobe malfunction when his seams started coming apart.

On Instagram, he shared a photo of his pants with a massive hole in the groin area, captioning the post, “Fun times were had last night… Pants held on until the very end.”

Fans quickly jumped into the comments section of his post, joking about the unfortunate incident. One fan wrote, “That happens when you’re runnin’ with the fastest girl in town.”

Another commented, “I love how nothing is a big deal with these two, simply just go with it. You both look stunning!”

Lambert herself humorously added, “Free ballin!”
