Wondering what to wear to the CMA and other country music awards? You’ve come to the right place!
If you love country music, I’m sure you are familiar with the big three country music awards: ACM, CMA, and CMT.
I don’t know about you but if I have enough budget, I’ll definitely buy the 4-day pass for the ultimate country music experience.
From fan fair, meet and greet opportunities to the spectacular night show, you’re bound to have a blast.
To attend a special music event like this, picking the right outfit that screams the right vibes is key.
Ahead, I’ve gathered 14 real-life audience outfits from casual to dressy. Enjoy!
1. What to wear to the CMA awards?
So here’s the most asked question: Is there a specific dress code to follow for country awards like CMA and CMT?
If you are sitting with the general public on the balcony, there’s no specific attire to follow.
That said, you can tell most people have put some effort into their outfits. From a nice top to a cocktail dress, make your own choice!
2. What to wear to the ACM award?
Gravitate towards pants? I say lean into it.
To look put together, pair up a patterned blouse, dress pants, and nude pumps just to look effortlessly chic and classy.
Always match the base color of the top and pants with the same shade to dress like a set.
3. What to wear to country music awards?
Besides a patterned shirt, the peplum top is another flattering choice if you want to hide the belly.
As a girl with food baby 24/7, I am loving the V-neck blouse below so far, so feminine and slimming.
4. A dressy jumpsuit for the CMA fest
These days, you can tell more and more people wear jumpsuits for music-aware events.
You just can’t go wrong with this stylish one-piece.
To finish up the look on a dressier end, pair it up with pointy heels and a sleek clutch to feel the best.
5. Go extra fun for the CMA award show
Going to the CMA award night with your girl pal? Dress up the look together for double happiness!
A spicy crop top and biker jacket just scream the fun vibes.
6. A blazer dress x white knee boots for a cool look
Want a dose of boss lady vibes? Throw on a blazer dress and knee boots and you’ll never feel anything missing from your outfit!
7. Go dressier if you sit floor seat
If you are one of the lucky girls who get to sit floor seat, go dressier as a safe bet.
For a stunning yet timeless choice, a backless black dress just screams nothing but “Look at me, I am looking like 10/10.”
8. When in doubt, go Country chic for CMA
Of course, many guests embrace the “Country chic” style for country music events.
You will see everything from earthy textures, and rhinestone belts to western boots. (A ton of cowboy boots…)
9. A meaningful country music quote tee
Want something playful? What else is better than wearing this “Blame it all on my ROOTS” tee to the CMA awards?
10. Cowboy outfits in black and red for CMT awards
To freshen up a traditional cowboy look, go for the stylish black and red combo!
It just looks sophisticated and dressy without trying too hard. The best part? This is such a non-cliche couple outfit idea to try!
11. What to wear to CMT awards?
If you want to dress cute with minimal effort, throw on the cowboy boots with your daily summer clothes just look perfect.
That said, the country award events are indoor and air-conditioned 24/7. Regardless of the season, bring a light cardigan or shawl with you.
12. Get a statement cowboy boots
Looking for a nice pair of cowboy boots on a budget?
These faux leather western boots with classic western embroidery on the shaft and foot are amazing.
Together with the wooden heel and sturdy rubber sole, it’s so comfy to wear all day long.
