All the country stars rocked the red carpet on April 7 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas for the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards. We saw it all — long gowns, pantsuits, hi-lo hems, and the equally surprising shoe selection. Take a look at what we’re talking about.
1. Faith Hill in Christian Dior Spring 2013
Faith Hill looked elegant in her black lace ensemble. Her Dior strappy sandals had a pop of pink that added a little flair to the whole outfit.

2. Shania Twain in Thigh-High Boots
Shania Twain walked confidently in her black strapless dress and black thigh-high boots. The combination didn’t impress us much, but the boots sure did.

4. Tobi Lee in Red Ankle Booties
Mustang Sally Band’s Tobi Lee went for bold and bright. We love her cherry-colored peep-toe booties! We only wish she toned down her outfit a little. What about you?

5. Miranda Lambert in Rene Caovilla Booties
Miranda Lambert was a winner that night. We give her a gold star for her shoe pick, too — crystal-embellished mesh booties. Can’t say the same for her outfit though.

6. Karen Fairchild in Fuchsia Peep Toes
Bold colors are all over the place, and Karen Fairchild of Little Big Town knows it. She paired her knotted fuchsia peep toes with a black dress, which is the right move when wearing statement shoes.

7. RaeLynn in Snakeskin Cowboy Boots
The Voice Second Season alumni, RaeLynn, was country glam in her chic dress and cowboy boots. We love these shoes on her. They definitely showed her country flair.

8. Carrie Underwood in Jimmy Choo Freya
Carrie Underwood was gorgeous in her Naem Khan long gown. She wore Jimmy Choo black suede peep toe sandals with an embellished ankle strap under it. We love them, even if we can’t see them on her. We’re not sure why she’s hiding those fabulous shoes.
