Looking good, y'all!

Proving that there's no point in settling for one dress when you've got 10 at your fingertips, co-host Carrie Underwood wowed in a variety of designer gowns at the November 9 County Music Awards.

Sporting loose curls and side-swept bang, the country crooner kicked things off on the red carpet with a gold sequined Reem Acra gown featuring a portrait neckline, which she paired with drop earrings, glitter Stuart Weitzman Vevey platforms, and a gold clutch.

For her opening song with Brad Paisley, however, the CoverGirl pinned back her blonde hair and slipped into a white asymmetrical Cengiz Abazoglu party dress with origami-style pleats, adding sparkle thanks to a bow-detailed white silk cuff from Cuffs Couture and diamond earrings from Royal Asscher. This was soon followed by a leg-baring dark brown sequined number with cap sleeves as well as yellow gold and rough cut diamond drop earrings from Sutra.

Speaking of sleeves, the quick-change artist had plenty more up hers. Like a Georges Chakra Couture coral one-shouldered lace dress featuring a dramatic tulle train to rival any bride. Underwood later wore the label's Fall 2011 black and copper sequined cocktail dress with a ruffled satin organza neckline.

The hostess with the mostess: Carrie Underwood in three of her CMA Awards looks

The singer also switched things up with a fedora and Nicki Rich by WTB's shimmering black cropped tuxedo jacket paired with box pleat shorts and Baccarat's Pampilles necklace; a sexy black chain-detailed "Rock & Roll" bustier dress from Mandalay and Sutra tasseled earrings; and a girlie pink and silver Abazoglu number (worn with Sergio Rossi Cachet slingbacks) that threatened to steal the show from Miss Piggy.

Long, flowing gowns also got some love. Zuhair Murad Cruise 2012 strapless floral gown with beaded accents offered a feminine touch, while a black and white tie-dyed dress with a dramatic slit and black onyx and diamond Sutra drop earrings channeled sultry boho-chic. And for a more daring look, Underwood opted for Victor Velyan chandelier earrings, Royal Asscher's floating diamond pendant neckalce, and Jean Fares Couture's green marbled-print satin gown with cut-out sleeves and a sexy plunging neckline.
