Style Moments at the Academy of Country Music Awards

The biggest names in country music celebrated in jeans at the 58th Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards. 

Music legends Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks hosted the awards show Thursday night in Frisco, Texas. Black jeans were part of Brooks’ monochromatic stage look, while Parton wore pull-on blue jeans embellished with turquoise beads matching her sheer duster jacket and leather corset top. 

Blue jeans were the go-to bottoms for Jason Aldean, Randall King, Ian Munsick and members of Midland. Western snap-button shirts were also prevalent with Ed Sheeran, Cody Johnson and Brian Kelley opting for denim versions. 

Bailey Zimmerman hit the stage dressed a bleached jacket and jeans, styled simply with a white tee. Dela Reilley went retro with a denim jumpsuit and turquoise accessories. Brandi Johnson, the wife of Cody Johnson, channeled Barbiecore by pairing a denim vest top with a bright pink skirt.

Wrangler served as the show’s official denim sponsor. Ahead of the event, the Kontoor Brands-owned label announced its multi-year sponsorship of the ACM Awards and the Academy of Country Music to shine a spotlight on next-gen names in country music. The brand will create an original short-form digital video series, offering viewers exclusive access into the lives of ACM nominees.

In Kontoor’s Q1 earnings call earlier this month, Scott Baxter, Kontoor Brands’ president, CEO and chairman, said “Wrangler’s connection to country music has never been stronger.”

Wrangler previously recently announced a multi-year collaboration with country superstar Lainey Wilson, who collected four ACM Awards.
