Carrie Underwood Hits High Notes in Crystal Fringe Bodysuit & Harness Booties for CMA Awards 2022 Performance

Carrie Underwood dressed dynamically for her solo performance at the 2022 CMA Awards. Hitting the stage at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. for the 56th annual musical ceremony, the Grammy Award-winning musician wore a glamorously dramatic bodysuit.

The black one-piece, featuring long sleeves and cinched with a crystal-coated buckled belt, was dripping with silver, black and gold crystal fringe. Underwood’s ensemble was complete with a round gold ring, allowing her outfit’s textures to take center stage.

When it came to footwear, Underwood opted for a slick finish in a pair of stiletto-heeled booties. Her pointed-toe style included black leather uppers with triangular toes and closed counters, given added edge from overlaid studded harness accents. Thin stiletto heels completed the sharp shoe, adding a dash of Western flair to her dramatic onstage ensemble.

Underwood’s dramatic onstage attire happened to be her third ensemble of the evening. The first came from her red carpet arrival, where she donned a sweeping blue gown and diamonds with matching suede pumps. In an emotional tribute to the late musician Loretta Lynn with Miranda Lambert and Reba McEntire, her second came from a two-toned pink and green dress covered in sequins — and, fittingly, paired with sparkly pink pumps.
