CMT — CMT will celebrate an incredible year in the country music industry by honoring Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban as the top country artists of 2014 in an all-new CMT Artists of the Year special.

Last night (September 09, 2014) Miranda walked the red carpet and performed at Fashion Rocks at the Barclays Center in New York City. Miranda definitely rocked the house wearing a red Valentina Kova jumpsuit as she performed Little Red Wagon she also wore a black suit ensemble while walking the red carpet. She also rocked two different hairstyles (I liked her red carpet look the best). Check out the photos in the gallery and the performance video and interview above.
