The 2022 CMT Artists Of The Year event, held at Schermerhorn Symphony Hall in Nashville, Tennessee, makes its broadcast premiere on Friday, October 14.
Ahead of the celebration honoring some of the best in country music, many of the top stars attended the red carpet portion of the festivities, including singer-songwriter Jessie James Decker and her husband Eric Decker.
The couple would pack on the PDA during their time in the spotlight, first by snuggling up next to each other for a few moments, and then by rubbing the tips of their noses together as they stared deep into each other’s eyes.
Hot and heavy: Jessie James Decker, 34, showed off her toned figure when she slipped into a hot pink minidress alongside husband Eric Decker, 35, for CMT’s Artists Of The Year 2022
Jessie (born Jessica Rose James), 34, showed off her fabulous figure decked out in a hot pink mini dress that hugged her feminine curves in all the right ways.
The skin-tight number, which fell to about the middle of her thighs, also showcased most of her back by having minimal fabric along her shoulders and back.
She would get a few added inches in height to her petite 5ft1in frame by wearing a pair of perfectly matched platform heels that had straps around each ankle.
Rounding out her overall look, the reality star had her long brown tresses pulled up into a bun in the back, while leaving hair hanging around the sides of her face with a center part.

Even with those added few inches, her husband still towered over her, considering he stands at 6ft3in.
The former NFL star, 35, would showcase his toned body in a tight black t-shirt that he wore underneath a black and gray blazer, to go along with his black pants and matching leather boots.
Eric played eight years in the National Football League (NFL), half with the Denver Broncos, three more with the New York Jets and one with the Tennessee Titans.
He signed on for a ninth season with the New England Patriots in August 2018, but by the end of the month he would announce his retirement from professional football.

While the You’re Still The One star, 34, dropped a number of poses with her husband of over nine years, she also went solo for the adoring photographers.
The I Look So Good star first made waves as an artist when she released her first studio album, Jessie James, in 2009, which debuted at number 23 on the Billboard 200 chart.
She would go on to drop two more studio albums: Southern Girl City Lights (2017) and On This Holiday (2018), as well as five EPs, beginning in 2014, with the latest being The Woman I’ve Become in October 2021.
Along the way, she and her husband starred in the E reality series Eric & Jessie: Game On, which ended up airing for three seasons.
More recently, it was announced that Jessie was a contestant on season 31 of Dancing with the Stars, and that she’s partnered with dance pro Alan Bersten.

While the You’re Still The One country crooner dropped a number of poses with her husband of more than nine years, she also struck some moves all on her own on the red carpet.
At one point, she turned to her side for an over-the-shoulder look, which put an emphasis on her backside and derriere.
