A gorgeous Miranda Lambert made quite an entrance, alongside her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, on the 2023 ACM Awards red carpet.

The "If I Was a Cowboy" singer, 39, stopped traffic in a plunging royal blue gown designed with sequined cups and a thigh-high slit. Matching blue stilettos completed the monochromatic look.

Makeup artist Moani Lee created an equally sultry purple smokey eye makeup look on Lambert, while hairstylist Johnny Lavoy worked the singer's blonde locks into soft waves.

McLoughlin looked dapper in a black suit complete with a velvet blazer, satin trousers and a matching tie. Shiny black loafers completed his black-tie ensemble.

Lambert — who will perform her new hit song "Carousel" during the show — is up for four awards including entertainer of the year, female artist of the year, album of the year (Palomino), and artist-songwriter of the year.

The 39-year-old singer, who won the coveted Triple Crown Award last year, is up for female artist of the year for a record-breaking 17th time; this year's nomination pushes her past Reba McEntire's 16 nods in the category.

Last year, Lambert rocked a sleeveless, black and pink vintage Mugler gown from Morphew that featured a silky pink slip dress beneath a lacy black top. She accessorized her look with Aquazzura shoes, a Tyler Ellis clutch and Gismondi 1754 jewelry.

As usual, Lambert was accompanied by her husband, who she married in 2019.
