Next Wednesday (Sept. 5), the nominees for the 2012 CMA Awards will be announced. That leaves stars less than two months to plan for the Nov. 3 broadcast. That’s two months to find the perfect dress, the perfect shoes or the perfect jacket. We’ve found the most adventurous outfits from previous CMA Awards and paired them side by side, just begging for your opinion. You get to play country music fashion police with your vote!

Each of the artists included is featured in two photos. The one on the left of each match-up is from a recent CMA Awards show, and the one on the right is from an older red carpet appearance. In addition to the artists shown above, you’ll get to look back at some wild, eye-catching ensembles worn by Alan Jackson, Sugarland, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill and Laura Bell Bundy. Many are stunningly beautiful, while others are just… Well, stunning. Feel free to add your opinion to the comments section as you click through.
