Music City’s finest dusted off their boots and rhinestones and hit the red carpet at the 2021 CMT Artists of the Year event.
After last year’s virtual tribute to the pandemic’s frontline workers, the CMT Artists of the Year celebration was back in-person, airing live from Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center — and some of country music’s biggest stars were on hand to highlight Nashville’s best — and of course, show off their most fabulous fashion.
