Just in time for one of the biggest nights in country music, this longtime champion of award shows pulled off a surprising new haircut before walking the (reddish) carpet.
Also part of her ensemble was a super-short haircut that took her previous efforts at cutting off her gorgeous blonde locks to a whole new level.
"I needed my life to be a little more simple," Underwood confessed to CMT. "It was taking to long to do things that shouldn't take long. It keeps getting shorter!"
She stole the show by taking home an award in each hand and performing her latest powerhouse single "Church Bells" at the Nashville show.
In a 2015 interview with Elle, Underwood says that it was a practical "mom move" to cut her hair, noting that she washes her hair every day because of her sweat-inducing workouts and time spent in the heat of the stage lights.
"I could spend half an hour to blow it dry and have it be super long, or I could spend that time playing with my son, and I'd much rather do the latter," she says of the decision to first cut her hair short.
