When Miranda Lambert walked the carpet solo for the 2018 ACM Awards on Sunday (April 15), it didn't come as too much of a surprise for fans who have been following her personal life. Rumors have been swirling for some time that the singer has broken up with her boyfriend of two years, Anderson East.

She looked so stunning, however, that her lack of escort was hardly a factor. And she chose a dress that definitely would not allow her to melt into the background. Her gown was the brightest red number possible, with an illusion sequined bodice and a flowing, flaming skirt.

If her dress weren't enough to draw attention, it's a big night for Lambert in and of itself. The singer is up for three awards including Female Vocalist of the Year, and awards she's won for eight straight years.

Following the awards show, Lambert is scheduled to hit the road in July with Little Big Town their joint Bandwagon Tour. She just recently wrapped her Livin' Like Hippies Tour and is reportedly at work on music for her beloved trio the Pistol Annies.
