Kelsea Ballerini's summer gown was scorching, while Jason Aldean and his wife looked perfectly pleased to be preparing for a baby's arrival on the 2017 ACM Honors red carpet.

Reba McEntire, Charles Esten and the family of Glen Campbell also walked the carpet on Wednesday (Aug. 23), setting up what should be a star-studding broadcast next month. Couples on the ACM Honors carpet included Aldean and Brittany Kerr, Maren Morris and fiance Ryan Hurd and Chris Stapleton with wife Morgane. Thomas Rhett went solo, as wife Lauren is just 12 days post having a baby, but he looked fine in a grey and white checkered suit and black dress shirt.

Janson and Esten also walked the ACM Honors red carpet with their wives. The newly-single Cassadee Pope came solo, as did Hayes, McEntire and Brett Young. Many stars like Young and Ballerini took a few selfies with fans, as well. Crowds were lined up to lower Broadway in Nashville to see artists entering the Ryman Auditorium to honor winners at the 2017 ACM Awards who didn't make the April broadcast.

The 2017 ACM Honors ceremony included performances from Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Brad Paisley, Morris and more. Fans can watch the show on CBS on Sept. 15 at 9PM ET. Winners were announced in May, with Dolly Parton taking home the Gary Haber Lifting Lives Award and Eric Church getting the Merle Haggard Spirit Award.
