All your favorite country stars came together at Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday night (November 10) for the 55th Annual CMA Awards. Hosted by Luke Bryan, the awards show welcomed back fans after having an artist-only event last year due to COVID-19.

All the stars put on their best looks and hit the red carpet before the show. We are always excited to see the couples that hit the carpet together. This year there were quite a few including Miranda Lambert and her husband, Brendan McLoughlin.

And Russell Dickerson and his wife, Kailey.

We always look forward to see one of our favorite couples, Thomas Rhett and his wife, Lauren. But, this year, Thomas left Lauren at home…and he had a good reason! Lauren is VERY pregnant and will be giving birth to their 4th daughter any day now!

Thomas Rhett did walk the red carpet with a beautiful date, but who was she? Turns out, he brought his mom, Paige Lankford!

He revealed her identity on Instagram saying, “My beautiful date tonight! MOM!!

Lauren commented, “CANNOT EVEN HANDLE YOU @paige_lankford1 ????”
