There was plenty of bumping around at this year’s 2019 Country Music Awards held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.
(From left to right in the above graphic)
First-time mom-to-be and recipient of the most nominations of the night, Maren Morris, posed on the red carpet with her husband Ryan Hurd in a baby blue (for the boy she’s carrying maybe) off the shoulder blouse with matching high-waisted floor-length skirt by Honayda and heels by Casadei. Hurd looked dapper in a Dolce & Gabbana suit, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, a Cartier watch and Stephen Webster cufflinks.
Morris walked away with Album of the Year for “GIRL”.
“Best Shot” country singer Jimmie Allen cradled the belly of his pregnant fiance Alexis Gale and Thomas Rhett and his pregnant wife Lauren Akins bumped it up with their daughters, 4-year old Willa and 2-year old Ada.
Stunning host Carrie Underwood looked exquisite in all of her looks including her red carpet dress she posed in with her Canadian ice hockey star hubby Mike Fischer: a sparkling Elie Madi gown featuring a slim sheer over skirt and a tulle cape and train paired with Jimmy Choo heels, Jared Lehr earrings and rings from Loree Rodkin and Maxior.
Other Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums on the carpet included:
Pink (Julea Domani by Zeena Zaki) and family showed up and showed out.
As did singer Jessie James Decker in Materiel with Tamara Mellon shoes with her husband, former NFL quarterback Eric Decker.
Hillary Scott in In Dolce & Gabbana, Reese Witherspoon in Saint Laurent with Nikos Koulis jewelry and Decker.
And Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles made a statement with her Christian Siriano pantsuit and cape, with the words “Play our f*@#in records please and thank you” written on the inside by artist Alice Mizrachi. Read about the reason behind the look here!
Tonight, second-time mom-to-be Carrie Underwood co-hosts the Country Music Awards with Brad Paisley at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. The American Idol alum has not let anything like being pregnant and incubating a whole new human stop her from performing the honors for the 11th time in a row.
Tonight will be the 52nd annual iteration of the show dubbed “Country music’s biggest night on TV.”
Personally, I’m excited to see how she will be serving her baby bump as only Carrie can.
Since announcing news of her pregnancy this summer, Underwood has been seen rocking a sequinned mini at the 2018 American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on October 9, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. Similarly, the “Think Before He Cheats” singer glistened and glowed at the arrivals of the 2018 CMT Artists of The Year event at Schermerhorn Symphony Center on October 17, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee
That same night, she went short and glittery again while performing on stage.
Earlier that month, we spotted her super early in her pregnancy looking fab at the iHeartRadio Music Festival at T-Mobile Arena on September 22, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
So we know to expect some ultimate swerve from this hard-working mama!
The 51st annual Country Music Awards went down last night at the on November 8 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
Carrie Underwood co-hosted the event for the 10th consecutive year along with Brad Paisley.
P!nk attended with daughter Willow Hart and she also performed a heartfelt rendition of her song “Barbies” on stage.
Future mom-of-twins Hillary Scott and her Lady Antebellum band mates Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood performed with Darius Rucker and Keith Urban onstage.
She wasn’t the only pregnant star in attendance.
Second-time mom-to-be country singer Jessie James Decker glowed on the red carpet as well.
I almost forgot to bring you guys the run down of the gorgeous celeb mamas we’ve covered in the past who attended the CMAs (Country Music Awards) at the Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday (November 2) in Nashville, Tennessee.
Hillary Scott and her Lady Antebellum band mates made the rounds in front of the flashing lights with Scott sporting a gorgeous white Pamella Roland gown. She looked amaze-balls…I mean better than I have ever seen her! Gorg!
Jennifer Garner went with black as well in a floor length slim fitting Jenny Packham gown with an adorned halter top. She looked youthful and refreshing! Beautiful!
Some of yall who don’t follow this genre of music might not have known that Britney Spears‘ baby sister Jamie Lynn Spears is an accomplished and successful country music singer and award-winning songwriter of hits for other artists.
Jessie James Decker showed out in a sequined halter gown with sexy side cut outs from Jay Godfrey NY. I loved her loose ringlets that framed her face and her nude matte make up was perfect! C’est Bonne!
I loved the gorgeous J. Mendel one sleeve cap sleeve dress that Jennifer Nettles wore with the sheer under blue applique and that tangerine popped against her olive tone skin. Nettles rarely does wrong on the red carpet. She has a great figure.
Finally, Carrie Underwood hosted and walked away with the Female Vocalist of the Year award but before walked the red carpet in a beaded dusty pink Michael Cinco halter gown with Swarovski crystals, pearls and scattered organza flowers. She accessorized the dress with triangle-shaped Butani diamond earrings and diamond rings by Hearts on Fire and Harry Kotlar. (I borrowed US Weekly‘s description. tee hee)
During the show, she changed outfits 10 times, paying homage to past First Ladies of Country including: Reba McEntire‘s plunging red dress from 1993 to Dolly Parton‘s famous silver gown from the 1970s; and Shania Twain and others.
