Kellie Pickler is being called the night's best dressed star in her chic black gown.

INSIDE EDITION's Megan Alexander asked Pickler, "What is your secret to looking so good?"

Pickler said, "It is called Spanx. Spanx and a girdle."

Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott, just three months after giving birth to a baby girl, looked great.

As always, everyone tuned in to see the incredible fashion choices of Carrie Underwood. She didn't disappoint in her sixth consecutive year as co-host and changed outfits 10 times.

Miranda Lambert unveiled her slimmer body. She reportedly lost 30 pounds and credits working out and juicing. She also gave up Cheetos.

It was the best possible date night for Miranda and husband Blake Shelton. Country's cutest couple won the awards for Male and Female Vocalist of the Year.

Taylor Swift won the Pinnacle Award, for bringing country music to a worldwide audience. Swift said, "Thank you, thank you, I love you. You've made me feel so special right now."

But it was the blockbuster performances that made this the highest rated CMA’s in eight years.

The king of country, George Strait, took home the top honor, winning Entertainer of the Year. It was a perfect end to a classic country night. Great music, beautiful gals, and plenty of sass.
