The ACM Awards will look a whole lot different than in years past in 2020: No audience, three separate venues in Nashville instead of one out west ... and no traditional red carpet.

There's no doubt that the country stars on hand to perform and accept trophies at the 2020 ACM Awards will be dressed to the nines, but they won't be strutting their stuff for the cameras ahead of time. A look at the best of the best dressed from the awards show through the years will have to do instead.

Flip through the photos below to see some of the best ACM Awards fashion from the 1980s through now. 2020 ACM Entertainer of the Year Carrie Underwood's among them; so is country-turned-pop superstar Taylor Swift, who'll grace the ACMs stage for the first time in five years on Wednesday night (Sept. 16):
