Jennifer Garner wore a sequin column Jenny Packham dress paired with big jewels and needless to say she looked gorgeous.


Kelsea Ballerini: She wore a stunning floral gown that she found on Instagram of all places, and looked dreamy in it!


Kimberly Williams Paisley: She wore an emerald Rubin Singer gown with a sweetheart neckline and Johnathon Arndt jewellery, including a necklace with a 20-carat yellow diamond pendant.


Sharon Stone:  The star oozed glamour in an extremely stunning black gown that had a plunging neckline, a dramatic pair of silver chandelier style earrings and a large black ring.


MADDIE MARLOW & TAYLOR DYE: Maddie in a forest green gown with an asymmetrical neckline and matching Tyler Ellis clutch. Taylor Dye wearing Nicole Miller paired with a gold metallic abstract print design.


Garth Brooks won the Entertainer of the Year award, Dolly Patron won the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award and Kenny Chesney won the Pinnacle Award amongst a few others. There were so many more stars that looked stunning at the event! It was a star-studded event indeed.
