Kacey Musgraves’s secret-containing hairdo seemed to have deflated a bit during the CMAs broadcast. After proudly hitting the red carpet with a mile-high bouffant, the CMA award winner tamed down her do a substantial amount for the live show.
There’s a lot to look forward to at the CMAs tonight. Miranda Lambert will be changing outfits five times. Carrie Underwood will probably have her beat. And Lucy Hale will be debuting a new do on the red carpet.

Miranda Lambert just celebrated a career milestone, rocking all 50 states for the first time in her 10 years as a country artist. And to celebrate her debut tour stop in Hawaii, the star made sure to hit the beach with her tight-knit crew — in a tiny black-and-white Seafolly bikini that accentuated her fab new physique.
Stars brought out some truly head-turning style at Tuesday’s Fashion Rocks concert. And by head-turning, of course, we mean skin-baring. Below, three star outfit switch-ups, from red carpet to stage, that we need to talk about.
The last time we checked in on Miranda Lambert‘s hair, she was styling it in a prim and pretty “lob” in the vein of her “Mama’s Broken Heart” persona (pre-meltdown). But lately she’s been “zhuzzing” it up with a more piecey, rocker vibe — and now she’s taken it to the next level.

And of course, by next-level, we mean into full bob territory. “Fresh cut! Fresh color! “Somethin’ bout PLATINUM! Thanks @amandacraig12! Love you,” Lambert captioned the photo, which she posted to Instagram Monday night. The new color, of course, is in tribute to her most recent album and just-kicked-off Platinum tour — and we wonder if the cut is too. It’s got an edgy rocker vibe that goes with some of her sassier new songs (you’ve heard “Something Bad,” right?) with lots of flippy layers, long sideswept bangs, and a chin-grazing length shorter than she’s gone before.
One definite advantage of her new short cut? It’s sure to dry much faster than her old extensions would have after undertaking the Ice Bucket Challenge, which she did with Thomas Rhett this weekend. Oh, and it’s super-cute. That’s the other advantage.

You certainly can’t call her predictable: Just when we were perfecting our Miranda Lambert fishtail braid, the country superstar went and chopped it all off. Now we’ve got another Lambert do to add to our “must try” list.
If Cassadee Pope, 24, looked especially radiant while picking up her first-ever CMT Award Wednesday (she nabbed Breakthrough Video of the Year for “Wasting All These Tears”), it’s partly because she was so thrilled to accept the award from her Voice mentor Blake Shelton — and partly because she’s got a new skincare routine.
