Country music awards show typically offer something interesting on the red carpet, and the 2015 CMT Music Awards were no exception.

The Nashville heat made more than a few men show up in a simple jeans and T-shirts, and although Cole Swindell, Luke Bryan and others looked great, this year was all about the ladies!

It was a tough job to narrow down the list, but below are our picks for the evening's best-dressed attendees (in no particular order).

Proud new mama Carrie Underwood made her first post-baby red carpet appearance at the 2015 CMT Music Awards ... and she looked stunning. Her short, white dress showed off her figure (especially those killer legs!) while still maintaining some modesty with long sleeves.

Jana Kramer

Jana Kramer is no stranger to sex appeal when it comes to her red carpet choices. The singer brought the va-va-voom in her tight-as-a-glove gown with cutouts and a good bit of cleavage. If anyone can pull off showing a little extra skin, it's Kramer. Plus, forest green looks amazing on the newlywed.

RaeLynn's short, straight hair added some maturity to her youthful stained-glass-window-inspired dress. The color and piping piqued interest while flattering the "For a Boy" singer's figure.

Danielle Bradbery

Danielle Bradbery looked like a million bucks in a heavily adorned, short, gold dress. The intricate beading on the frock made it look extremely heavy, but the shaping and design of the beads couldn't have been more flattering on the young singer's tan figure.

Meghan Linsey

Meghan Linsey did her best to try and beat the heat in this two-piece ensemble, and while the long skirt may have made that task more difficult, we love the way she used so much of a bold floral pattern while showing just a teeny bit of skin.

Jamie Lynn Spears

Jamie Lynn Spears looked all grown up on the red carpet in a simple navy jumpsuit with a couple of added pops of color thanks to her accessories. We do have to wonder what that key around her neck unlocks though ...
