Carrie Underwood described red carpets perfectly when she talked about the mayhem that happens before, and while, those glamorous-looking photos are taken. Country singers have their secrets, and we weren't afraid to ask.

Dolly Parton, Lauren Alaina and RaeLynn are just a few of the women Taste of Country Nights Sam Alex and red carpet host Hilary Billings talked to at the 2016 ACM Awards. Frankie Ballard, Chase Bryant and Chris Lane make up some of the men, although Eli Young Band were also happy to talk about what's going on where the sun don't shine.

Talk of Spanx, tape and Batman socks lightened up the red carpet parade of stars. For a second straight year Taste of Country was on the red carpet welcoming country's biggest stars to the annual awards show. Underwood, Miranda Lambert and Jake Owen were among country music's best dressed stars, but as the "Church Bells" singer explains, it's not easy getting there.

Jason Aldean won Entertainer of the Year at the 2016 ACM Awards, but Chris Stapleton was the night's big winner, taking a record-tying six ACMs home with him. Little Big Town and Lambert also won multiple awards.
