The CMA Awards have returned to Nashville, celebrating the achievements and accomplishments of country musicians — and doing so in style.
This year, stars hitting the red carpet at the Bridgestone Arena slipped on an array of statement-making heels. Many opted for open-toed sandals in an array of hues, from classic black to flashy embellished tones. Others took the sky-high route, slipping on platform-soled styles with soaring heels in neutral and metallic tones.
