If there’s one thing Kacey Musgraves knows, it’s how to make an entrance. She burst onto the country music scene fairly recently, but she’s already become the genre’s newest sweetheart. And she’s equally sensational when it comes to her fashion choices, as proven by her duo of dresses at Wednesday night’s CMT Music Awards.

Kacey wore two different black ensembles over the course of the evening (maybe she’s been listening to a lot of Johnny Cash lately?), but they couldn’t be any further from your classic LBDs. She appeared first in a glamorous and formal gown with a cinched-waist full skirt. The whole thing could have been very uptight, were it not for the beaded trim and Kacey’s fun and casual updo.

Kacey got even more relaxed to perform “Livin’ on Love” with Lee Ann Womack. She swapped her floor-length dress for a short black frock, and we loved the look even more than her first one. The leather AMEN dress featured an adorable lace hem and tons of bling. The whole thing was a little bit country AND a little bit rock ’n’ roll. Very appropriate.
