Several country stars stepped out on the 2015 iHeart Radio Music Awards red carpet on Sunday night (March 29) and, as usual, they made our genre look good.
Jason Aldean brought new wife Brittany Kerr as his date, and with her at his side, the country star looked happier than ever. Kerr chose a daring black leather dress with small slits for the evening, while her main squeeze was a little more casual. Brantley Gilbert also kept his look low-key, opting for a graphic tee with the words “Come as You Are” scrawled across it. Pop crossover Taylor Swift left the crop top at home for this awards show and instead chose a flattering black Kaufman Franco dress with side cutouts — apparently the look of the evening. On her feet, the already tall singer chose elegant black heels.
Many of country’s biggest stars will compete in categories like Country Song of the Year, but the Renegade Category (where Gilbert is nominated) and Artist of the Year span multiple genres. Luke Bryan and Taylor Swift will go head to head there, facing Iggy Azalea, Ariana Grande and Sam Smith.
