Wednesday’s CMT Music Awards featured epic collaborations and stunning styles, but it was Carrie Underwood who once again stole the show, with three jaw-dropping looks, two wins and one powerful performance of her single, "Church Bells."
“My fans are so good to me,” the country star marveled to ET’s Sophie Schillaci backstage at the awards show. “I've been seeing them out on tour and they always show up. They show up to concerts, they show up to vote, and they show up wherever they can show up. I don't deserve them but I'm grateful.”
Underwood absolutely slayed the whole night at the CMT Awards, starting with rocking the red carpet alongside her husband, NHL star Mike Fisher, in a colorful halter dress with a super-high thigh slit.
“I like to go to things with him,” Underwood gushed to ET. “He doesn't get to come to many things with me, because his season is during my season, so he never gets to come to anything except the CMT Awards which is great. I like showing him off.”
Underwood looked stunning, but it was Fisher’s fashion that she wanted to talk about, adding, “He always looks hot but tonight he looks especially hot.”
“He's gonna be mad at me for talking about his skinny jeans,” she answered with a laugh when asked what she liked best about Fisher’s awards show getup. “They're not skinny jeans, but they’re tighter than he normally does. He's always hot.”
The songstress pulled out all the stops for her stage show, donning a black lace ensemble with a detachable cape that she dropped for dramatic effect, and recruiting a full gospel choir to back her up on the powerful number.
Finally, Underwood changed into a show-stopping, super-short golden dress to accept her award for CMT Performance of the Year. The country star was honored for the CMT Instant Jam performance of her song “Smoke Break,” which also garnered her the CMT Music Award for Female Video of the Year.
“Since this is a performance award, I want to thank you guys that have been coming out and supporting country music on tour,” Underwood marveled in her second acceptance speech of the evening. “We’ve spent the first part of the year on the road, and it’s just been so wonderful to see so many people come out. I know I speak for everyone out there, all of us artists, when I say that you guys are the reason that we get to do what we get to do.”
