Carrie Underwood is set to host the CMA Awards for the 11th consecutive year this week, with the star having taken the stage alongside Brad Paisley for the past decade to helm country music's biggest night.
As the number of years she's hosted the show have increased, so too did the number of outfits Underwood wears for each of them, often changing ensembles each time she appears on stage. As a result, the 35-year-old has displayed a plethora of looks over the past 10 years, ranging from sleek satin dresses to fully sequined ensembles.
