Carrie looked gorgeous for her performance

Earlier in the evening, Carrie highlighted her figure once again in a metallic, animal print purple mini dress as she walked the red carpet at Nashville's Municipal Auditorium with her husband Mike Fisher.

It was an eventful night for the singer who scooped the award for Collaborative Video of the Year for her duet, If I Didn't Love You, with Jason Aldean.

Other performers included Mickey Guyton and Black Pumas, Kelsea Ballerini, Kane Brown, Cody Johnson, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd, Cole Swindell and Lainey Wilson, and Keith Urban, who opened the show.

Luke Combs was due to perform but was forced to pull out after testing positive for COVID-19.

And just hours before the show kicked off, it was announced that co-host Kelsea, who was due to join Captain America star Anthony Mackie on stage, had also been diagnosed with COVID-19 and would instead be virtually hosting from her home.
