The Entertainer of the Year nom hit the carper in a blue gown that popped on the awards show's red carpet.

Carrie Underwood was a vision in blue as she hit the red carpet for the 56th Annual CMA Awards. Dressed in a strapless baby blue gown that featured glittering embellishments, the Entertainer of the Year nominee nearly brought the carpet to a halt with her dazzling dress. The gown, which featured a thigh-high slit and off-the-shoulder details, was draped throughout, showcasing different hues of blue.

Underwood also posed for pics with her husband, Mike Fisher, who coordinated with his wife in a navy blue suit.
