Thomas Rhett and wife Lauren Akins took a walk down the red carpet at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday night (Nov. 14), ahead of the 2018 CMA Awards. The couple stopped and posed for photographers on their way into the event.

Rhett was looking dashing in a navy blue tux and bowtie, while Akins looked stunning in a full-length, off-the-shoulder, deep-pink gown. It was date night for the couple, who have two daughters -- Willa and Ada -- at home.

Rhett is in the running for two CMA Awards this year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year. He will also be performing during the awards show.
