Lambert was not nominated this year, but over her storied career, she’s earned 37 ACM Awards, most recently winning video of the year and the prestigious entertainer of the year award at the 2022 ceremonies.

‘Country elegance’

The Nashville star made her red carpet debut wearing a high-slit black dress with a plunging V-neckline. She was accompanied by Brendan McLoughlin, a former police officer who is now her devoted partner. She accessorized the ensemble with a sleek silver pocketbook and a silver belt with light blue decorations. Her five-year-husband McLoughlin matched her style with a dapper black suit and tie.

Online admirers flocked to Lambert, 40, and McLoughlin’s stunning red carpet ensembles. The couple wed in 2019 following a brief two-month romance.

“You’re always well put together, Miranda…in country elegance,” a fan says. Additionally, Brendan’s suits (I adored his boutonnière) go well with you.

“He is really happy for her. She is quite beautiful. A second writes, “Look at those smiles,” referring to her devoted hubby.

“Wow Miranda with natural curves,” comments a third internet user. An exquisite gown that accentuates her beauty without sacrificing style!

However, not everyone thinks that her outfit was “elegant” or “country.”

Shocked by Lambert’s less is more neckline, others also penned harsh criticisms.

As one critic puts it, “She needs to put some clothes on.”

“Wow, cover up the top a little,” remarks the second. Not a single free show to give!” while still another says, “She’s always gone for trashy over classy.” Not shocked.

“So country girls starting to dress like the other genre,” comments someone else.

Cheeky cowgirl

Lambert later made her stage debut performing the live premiere of her track, “Wranglers,” after trading in her gown for a sassy cowboy outfit.

The “Kerosene” singer arrived on stage wearing a cowboy hat with two braids coming out from the sides, a jacket with fringes hanging from the arms, and darker jeans.

One reader exclaims, “LOVE the outfit with the chaps,” referring to the black leather chaps that Lambert wore over her denim pants and adorned with fringe.

“At the CMAs, you two are the BEST dressed couple. Finally, but just as importantly, “Wranglers” was hilarious! Bravo,” exclaimed a fan.

A second remarks, “Now, they have changed the name to Frisky, Texas,” referring to Frisco, the location of the event.

Another says, “They slayed that carpet like she slayed her performance.”

Falling apart at the seams

When his seams began to come apart, McLoughlin experienced a wardrobe malfunction, making the evening less flawless for him.

The man posted a picture of himself wearing pants with a large hole in the exact place where his groin should be on Instagram.

“Fun times were had last night…..” is how he captions the photo.Pants persisted all the way to the finish.

Fans joked about the regrettable occurrence as soon as they entered the post’s comments section: One cyberfan says, “That’s what happens when you’re runnin’ with the fastest girl in town.”

Another says, “I love how with these two, nothing is a big deal—just go with it.” Both of you are gorgeous!

Lambert concludes by saying, “Free ballin!”
