Miranda Lambert made a showstopping appearance at the CMA Awards in Nashville on Wednesday, and who can blame her — after all, it’s her first shared red carpet with ex-husband (and fellow country star) Blake Shelton since the couple announced their divorce in July.

Lambert, 31, was all smiles as she showed off her smokin’-hot figure in a sleek black dress and hot-pink dip-dyed tips. She didn’t, however, appear to interact with her ex, who was confirmed to be dating Gwen Stefani earlier Wednesday night — and who said he anticipated some awkward jokes at the former couples’ expense. “[Country music] is such a family. Everybody there is friends, you know?,” he explained to Seth Meyers. “There’s gotta be a joke about me and Miranda. [Co-host] Brad Paisley is not doing his job if he doesn’t look down there and go, ‘Haha!’ I mean, he’s gotta do it.”

She also put in plenty of prep time for the carpet, logging minutes in a face mask and adding hot-pink highlights to her sexy, piecey bob — a formerly bright platinum “breakover” she’s been rocking since August.

Lambert is the only woman nominated for Entertainer of the Year, going up against Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney and Eric Church. Lambert is up for Female Vocalist of the Year as well.

The five-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year recently finished her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour.

“It was one of the most amazing times I’ve ever had on the road,” Lambert captioned on Instagram. “Thanks to everyone who came out to see us! And thanks for supporting women in country music.”
