Carrie Underwood Ready For Outfit Changes
As co-host of the CMA Awards on Wednesday, November 2nd, Carrie Underwood is known for her many outfit changes during the three-hour broadcast. This year will be no different, as Carrie gears up for a whopping 11 clothing changes, including one to represent each decade of the CMA’s 50 years.
The superstar told People.com that she will be wearing a different outfit to celebrate the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and ’00s.
“There are some looks throughout our night that are very singular artist inspired and it should evident, but going back, there are just so many incredible, legendary ladies of country music. I didn’t wanna really completely pigeonhole myself to one artist. It’s about paying tribute as well.”
In addition to her decade-themed ensembles, Carrie will have five other looks including her red carpet dress, performance dress, as well as an after party dress. Carrie offered a few hints about these changes saying,
“My performance look is a more menswear inspired type outfit, and then I have a part in another tribute performance, and that one will be just sequins all the way. Then of course there’s my carpet dress which I’m very excited about because it’s just girly, princess-y and pretty.”
Carrie has gotten pretty good at quick changes in the course of the live broadcast. She boasts that her fastest change was during the 2012 show which she did in a mere 40 seconds!
The 50th annual CMA Awards will air live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday on ABC.
