Erin and Ben presented Chris Stapleton with the Male Vocalist of the Year CMA Award.

It's safe to say the couple had an unforgettable night.

UPDATE: 8/7c

The Napiers arrived on the red carpet all smiles. In true Home Town fashion, Ben showed off a vintage Pendleton cowboy blazer, Blue Delta jeans and his dad’s vintage boots. Meanwhile, Erin stunned in a textured, floral Marchesa dress with flounce sleeves.

In an interview before the awards began, the couple revealed they were asked to present just 10 days before the event. "And we were like absolutely!" Ben said. "Drew Barrymore helped [Erin] get a dress, and I bought a coat on Ebay."

"It's true," said Erin. "We've gotten to know eachother a little bit ... I didn't know how to get a dress that quickly and Drew helped me get this one."

As for Helen and Mae, the couple revealed they're in Nashville watching with friends. "Helen's not really interested in us, she wants to see Carrie Underwood," Ben said.

Later tonight, Ben and Erin will announce the Best Male Vocalist of 2022.

Home Town’s Erin and Ben Napier are headed to Nashville for the 56th Annual Country Music Association Awards. The HGTV hosts will take the stage to present with other household names such as country musician Luke Bryan and pro-football hall-of-famer Peyton Manning. Tune into ABC November 9 at 8/7c to watch.

Given the Napiers' love for country artists particularly Chris Stapleton, who they'll be be seated next to — presenting at the CMA Awards is a fitting honor.

Last week actress Drew Barrymore left an elusive comment on Erin’s Instagram post: “@erinnapier wonder what you will be wearing???”

Erin's known for donning beautiful floral dresses and functional-cool reno clothes. So of course Drew's comment left us all *speculating* what an Erin-approved, red-carpet look might entail.

Alas, Erin confirmed with HGTV: She’ll be wearing a Marchesa dress à la Drew, who called the designer directly. As for what the dress looks like — we'll be switching between Instagram and red-carpet coverage for a first look.
