The 23-year-old actress joined friend, musician and collaborator Kristian Bush (of Sugarland) at the event.
“What an honor to escort the beautiful Miss @lucyhale to her first #CMAawards!” Kristian wrote on Twitter.
Lucy, who is also pictured arriving at LAX airport in Los Angeles en route to Nashville, replied, “You’re the grandest!”
Just recently, Lucy had worked with Kristian on her upcoming country album, out next spring.
FYI: Lucy is wearing a lovely Moschino gown with a Kotur clutch, Casadei heels, Nikki Baker earrings and a House of Lavande ring.
