Let’s be honest – why do you watch the CMA Awards? Will you tune in Nov. 8 to catch hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley’s opening and often-hysterical monologue? Are you curious just to see what Kelsea Ballerini and Reba McEntire have up their sleeves in terms of their performance together? Will you tune in just to check out Luke Bryan and his tight pants?

Or, do you just want to see what the heck Carrie will wear this year? That’s OK – we love that part of the show, too.

There is no doubt that Carrie accomplishes the near impossible during the course of the show, changing from one beautiful outfit to the next during nearly every commercial break. Yet often, fans don’t get any sort of sneak peek at those dresses and outfits until the night of the show.

Well, it’s your lucky day.

Carrie recently shared a pic with “People” magazine of her CMA Awards dressing room, already stocked with gorgeous gowns and dresses ready for her come awards night.

“Looking through one of many racks in my dressing room backstage at Bridgestone Arena,” Carrie captioned the shot. “Found some great looks for Wednesday night!”

Before the 2016 show, Carrie weighed in on just how she juggles so many looks throughout the evening, even though that sometimes means she doesn’t have time to try on every dress during rehearsals.

“When we get the running order of the show, we’re like, ‘OK these are complicated so we’re gonna need more time,’ so we try to just plan where things that might need a little more time get a little more time,” she explained. “And there are easy changes, like, ‘Oh, we have five minutes,’ that’s a lifetime in TV quick-change world. We make the time count.”
