Pictures of Taylor Swift + More at the 2011 CMA Awards
Taylor Swift, 'Voice' coach Blake Shelton, 'If I Die Young' hitmakers the Band Perry, and 'American Idol' runner-up Lauren Alaina were all present at the 45th annual CMA Awards on Nov. 9. With the exception of Alaina -- who is still quite the newcomer to the country scene -- the musicians performed for the crowd gathered at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. Swift, Shelton, and the Perry siblings all took home awards, as well.
On the red carpet, Swift looked classy and absolutely stunning (as usual!) in a white gown with draped chiffon. Her wavy hair was swept up in a loose ponytail, and her makeup was simple, yet very striking, thanks to a pop of pink on Swift's lips. Kimberly Perry of the Band Perry also looked great in a lacy white dress, and Lauren Alaina was also seen rocking the angelic shade. Blake Shelton looked studly as usual, as the 'Voice' coach posed for pictures on the red carpet with his wife and fellow country singer, Miranda Lambert.
During the CMA Awards, Swift picked up the night's biggest honor -- Entertainer of the Year. She also performed her single 'Ours' for the crowd. Blake Shelton won an award for Male Vocalist of the Year, and the tall drink of water also performed his revamped version of the classic movie song 'Footloose' with original 'Footloose' hitmaker Kenny Loggins. In addition to Swift and Shelton's wins, the Band Perry also picked up awards for Song of the Year and Single of the Year for their wildly popular crossover tune 'If I Die Young.'
