Country Music Stars Celebrate the CMT Music Awards at Austin’s Moody Center

The city came alive as country music crooners like Shania Twain, Kelsea Ballerini, Blake Shelton and Cody Belew arrived to celebrate – and Tribeza was in the heart of it all

The world’s biggest country stars arrived in Austin on April 2, after a scheduling conflict ruled out the CMT Music Awards’ usual location of Nashville, Tennessee. Held at Moody Center, the night brought several of country music’s celebrated artists and future stars to the Texas capital.

Along the quintessential CMT Music Awards teal carpet, stars descended upon Austin’s buzzy new venue, welcomed by a crowd of excited fans, The Longhorn Band and even Bevo himself. At the red carpet event, we caught a glimpse of Spencer Crandall, Austinites THEBROSFRESH stunning everyone in their matching cowboy glam and Taylor Holder.
