Total country goals. Country music’s hottest couples walked the red carpet of the 50th Annual Country Music Association Awards in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday, November 2. There were couples like Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, who recently celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary, in addition to newlyweds and soon-to-be-married pairs.

Here, The Knot rounds up the nine cutest celebrity couples to attend the star-studded awards show — all of whom got to enjoy a surprise performance by Beyonce, herself!

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman

He wants to love somebody like her! Country superstar Urban proudly walked his stylish wife down the red carpet into the stadium on Wednesday night. Kidman looked beautiful in a form-flattering Gucci dress featuring a pleated skirt, bell sleeves, and red accents, including a ribbon accentuating her waste.

The pair spoke about Urban’s recent birthday and other cute family moments, including a recent outdoor excursion. “The girls wanted a tent,” Kidman joked with an eye roll. “And we camped in the backyard.”

RaeLynn and Josh Davis

The “Diamonds” singer, who married Davis this past February, adorably leaned up for a kiss from her handsome husband while walking the red carpet.

“One of my favorite moments was the first look,” RaeLynn told us at the time. “When I saw him in that gray suit, my heart melted… My other favorite moment was seeing his face as I was walking down the aisle. And saying our vows. I couldn’t help but cry, because it was such a beautiful moment. He means so much to me.”

Luke Bryan and Caroline Boyer

Married since 2006, the spouses of 10 years looked happier than ever on the red carpet Wednesday night. Bryan flashed his mega-watt grin alongside his stunning wife, who looked statuesque in a printed column gown.
