Carly Pearce and Michael Ray appeared together on the red carpet at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena ahead of the 2018 CMA Awards on Wednesday night (Nov. 14). The couple, who officially announced that they are dating back in July, paused to cozy up for photographers as they made their way in to the ceremony.

Pearce was stunning in a flowing black and gold gown, and Ray was sporting a black tuxedo and white shirt. The twosome flashed some big smiles for the cameras on their way into the arena.
