Luke Bryan loves the color black for CMA red carpets, unless he doesn't, and then we fall in love. Yep, when the 2017 CMA Awards Entertainer of the Year nominee adds a splash of color he goes from "meh" to heart eyes emoji.

Wife Caroline walked with Bryan in eight of the 10 years we could find pictures from (what's up, 2008?) but we did our best not to let our opinion of her outfits influence this worst to best ranking. That's not to say that pictures that show them both having an A-grade fashion day didn't rank high — her best often pairs with his.

Bryan has taken a few risks on the CMA red carpet. His jacket choices in 2007 and 2012 were ... unexpected. An open collar at the 49th annual CMAs stood out. What worked and what didn't? Help us decide with a comment in the comments section below, and then check back to ToC after the Nov. 8 CMAs to see where his 2017 look ranks!

Remember: The best way to watch the CMAs is on TV, with ToC on your phone!
