ACM Awards 2018: See the Red Carpet Arrivals!

By

Country music's hottest stars have arrived at the 53rd annual Academy of Country Music Awards!

From glamorous gowns to stylish suits -- and, of course, the occasion cowboy hat -- the biggest names in country dressed to impress at the 2018 ACM Awards, held in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sunday. 

The host for the evening, Reba McEntire, looked stunning on the carpet in a beaded white gown with Dolly Parton-inspired fringe, while newlywed Maren Morris walked the carpet with her hubby, Ryan Hurd, in a daring, strapless iridescent dress.

Backstreet Boys star AJ McLean donned a dark maroon suit with a black tie, while Cassadee Pope sported a suit of her own, rocking a low-cut black velvet ensemble with matching shoes and clutch.

Many stars were also seen wearing gold pins featuring the numbers 851, 58 or 1, a tribute to the the victims of the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival last October. 851 country fans were injured and 58 were killed in the shooting, which occurred during Jason Aldean's headlining set at the festival, making it the largest mass shooting in American history.

Aldean recently told ET that he was looking forward to taking the stage at the ACM Awards -- his first performance in Vegas since the tragedy -- while surrounded by his country music family.

"A lot of them were there, you know?" Aldean said of his fellow country stars, many of whom had performed earlier at the festival and were in the audience or nearby when the attack occurred. "A lot of them were there that weekend playing on that same festival. So I think for me to go back in this way, with all those people, is kind of the perfect way to really go back and do it for the first time."
