The Band Perry took home the most honors at the 45th Country Music Association Awards Wednesday night (November 9), but not the top one. The award for entertainer of the year went to Taylor Swift.

The Band Perry won three awards at the ceremony in Nashville: new artist, single and song of the year (for “If I Die Young”). Jason Aldean was the only other multiple winner, scoring album of the year honors for “My Kind of Party” and musical event of the year for “Don’t You Wanna Stay,” his duet with Kelly Clarkson.

Taylor wowed with her floor-sweeping, strapless dress with fan earrings. LeAnn Rimes was also dressed to impress. The country singer wore a silver layered-ruffle dress to walk the red carpet. She teamed the look with a small silver box clutch and plum lips and nails.

Nicole Kidman was dressed to impress, alongside country singer husband, Keith Urban, in a simple metallic black, strapless column dress. Co-host Carrie Underwood glittered in a full-length, sequinned gold gown with capped sleeves. She wore a sparkling bangle and ring to complete the look.
