While host Dolly Parton walked the Monday, March 7, red carpet solo, her cohosts, Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett, posed with their significant others. (The 76-year-old “Jolene” singer has been married to Carl Thomas Dean since 1966, but she keeps him out of the public eye as much as possible.)
The “Freedom Was a Highway” crooner, 36, and his wife, Alexis Gale, took a break from their two daughters, Naomi, 2, and Zara, 4 months, to attend the Las Vegas event. Allen is also the father of 7-year-old son Aadyn, from a previous relationship.
Barrett, for her part, is a mom herself, having welcomed daughter Baylah in January 2021. The “I Hope” singer, 22, took off her parenting hat for the night and celebrated the awards show with her husband, Cade Foehner, whom she wed in October 2019 after falling in love on season 16 of American Idol.
Morris is nominated for Female Artist of the Year alongside Barrett, Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde and Carly Pearce. Hurd, for his part, earned a nod for New Male Artist of the Year. However, Parker McCollum was announced as the New Male Artist winner on Friday, March 4, ahead of the live event.
The “Hole in the Bottle” songstress, 28, rocked a sexy, black Saint Laurent gown while her husband, 36, wore a sleek black suit.
