The Academy of Country Music Awards is a night that sets out to celebrate the greats of country music, but it also provides us with a look at some of the most glamorous dresses ever created. While there are always classic looks, many stars use the opportunity to wear dresses that are most daring and interesting. These are some of the most inspiring styles from the ACM Awards throughout the years.

The Highwomen member Maren Morris wears a variation of a classic dress that features a plunging neckline and bejeweled embroidered lime green designs. She accessorizes with matching lime heels and a thing gold belt.
Country staple Miranda Lambert gives off serious witchy-glam vibes with this look. Her neon green Alex Perry dress features a thin neckline that accentuates her strong shoulders and clavicles, while her purse gives off an almost chic potion bottle look.
Nicole Kidman accompanies her country crooner beau Keith Urban while wearing this romantic Christopher Kane dress. It features delicate lace contrasted with an almost chain mail design. The plunging neckline is balanced out with statement sleeves.
