On Wednesday, Elle King and Dierks Bentley took the stage at the CMT Music Awards for a live performance of their country collaboration, "Different For Girls," and the soulful duet proved to be one of the night's biggest highlights.

Before the show, King and Bentley stopped to talk with ET's Sophie Schillaci on the red carpet at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, where the 26-year-old singer opened up about her recent engagement to her longtime boyfriend, Fergie, and her upcoming wedding plans (or lack thereof).

"Apparently people plan their wedding like years in advance! I found this place, I found a wedding planner, and they were like, It's going to be like $300,000," King joked. "Then I was like, 'Babe, Vegas is like a quick flight.' So I don’t know."

"I'm just going to let my mom handle it," she added with a laugh.

While they aren't yet married, the cute couple have already made their declarations of love pretty permanent -- in the form of huge tattoos! The "Ex's & Oh's" singer showed off her new body art on the red carpet, flaunting the huge knife-through-a-heart tattoo (complete with her fiance's name) inked across her chest.

"It's not even a fake tattoo, it's real," King revealed. "He just got my name tattooed on the front of his neck, so it's fair."

During her impressive duet with Bentley, King rocked a shimmering black gown and plucked away skillfully on a gold banjo while the 40-year-old country crooner kept things casual in a black leather jacket and jeans, as they sang the new single off Bentley's latest album, Black.

Recently, King spoke with ET at the GRAMMYs where she gushed about her adorable fiance and his beautiful, nautical proposal.

"I thought if I ever got engaged it would be like, 'I dare you to marry me in some dumpster' or whatever," the 26-year-old singer said. "But like [on a] sailboat under the Golden Gate Bridge? It's beautiful!" To hear more from the soulful songstress -- including how she wants to have 19 kids -- check out the video below.
