Crop Tops and Bralettes That Stole the Show at the CMT Awards: Kelsea Ballerini Wasn’t Like the Others!

The CMT Awards on Monday, April 11 had their fair share of leg-revealing mini dresses (yes Carrie Underwood, we’re looking at you with your sensational purple Dolce and Gabbana dress!), but another hot trend on the Nashville red carpet another part of the body has revealed itself altogether.

We’re talking abs, and the barely-there crop tops and bralettes some of country music’s biggest names wore to show them off! Take a look at some of the most spectacular ab-revealing outfits on the CMT Awards red carpet…

Kelsea Ballerini

The CMT Awards were somewhat bittersweet for Kelsea, as she was unable to attend the ceremony due to testing positive for COVID-19. However, that didn’t seem to stop her, as she hosted the ceremony live from her home; backdrop and all! What a professional! We’re forever grateful that the 28-year-old “Half of My Hometown” singer was well enough to liven up and also make the most of her outfit, as she was one of the best-dressed at the entire ceremony thanks to her dazzling, ab-bare bralette and high-waisted Michael Kors suit. Kelsea 1, COVID, 0.

Maren Morris

If anyone wants to inspire you to attend this workout class, or at the very least do sit-ups and abs at home, it’s going to be Maren! The 32-year-old “Circles Around This Town” singer blew everyone away with her sparkly crop top and red skirt combo on the red carpet, mixing sexy and edgy with romantic in one unforgettable look!

Meghan Linsey

The 36-year-old “Made Me This Way” singer also flaunted her hard abs in a stunning gold bralette, which she wore under a chic and powerful pink velvet pantsuit. The matching gold wedge heels and incredibly sparkly bag were also the perfect accessories of choice!

Danielle Bradbery

The 2013 The voice The winner showed that straight-cut crop tops are a great alternative to edgier bralettes, as she proved you can show off your abs in a less revealing way with her red crop top and nude fitted full-length skirt combo. The 25-year-old “Break My Heart Again” singer kept accessories to a minimum and wore her hair in an effortless, distraction-free bun to let her perfectly sculpted abs do the talking!

The 18-year-old ‘Real To Me’ singer incorporated crop top and bralette elements into her retro ’70s-inspired jumpsuit with cutouts, which she completed with a matching cape in the same print; and we are a bit obsessed with it! We love when celebrities take style risks on the red carpet, especially when they pay off like this!
