Smiles all around!!
The two friends got together and smiled for the cameras on the red carpet at the Academy of Country Music Awards!
But wait a sec, where is Hunter's gal pal?? You would think he'd take her as his date to the show!
The country cutie put on his best dark grey suit and no tie for the special occasion — is this a new trend going around or did everyone just rush out of their houses and hotel rooms without their ties?!
Brandy, on the other hand, kinda matched her buddy on the carpet with a colorful blazer, black slacks, and peep-toed pumps!
They both cold've done a little better, but hey, we'll give them some slack since there are a TON of country award shows every year!
Gotta save your best ensemble for your favorite show, right??

Not only does Hunter Hayes have a big voice, he's got a big heart, too.
The country singer promoted an important cause ahead of this Sunday's ACM Awards: Child Hunger Ends Here.
On Thursday, Hunter joined kids from Voice of Hope Ministries, the Partner Agency of the North Texas Food Bank, to fill backpacks with food for needy kids. Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten also lent a helping hand.
The donations were all made possible by Child Hunger Ends Here, Feeding America, and the Academy of Country Music.
The ACM Awards will be held at Cowboys Stadium, but the real winners are the kids who have a meal.
Ch-ch-check out more EXCLUSIVE images of Hunter above!
And considering some of the acts playing on Sunday, that's really saying something!
The country crooner gave us the inside deets on how it feels to be nominated!
Isn't this the sweetest thing ever?!
Many people tend to buy puppies or go to breeders, but Hunter Hayes went with an even better option when he decided to bring a pet into his life.
The country cutie went the road less traveled by adopting an adorable retired race dog! A Greyhound by the name of Cole!
Hunter introduced his new dog to the Twitterverse with an obligatory selfie of course!
He tweeted out:
Congrats, Hunter Hayes!
The singer scored the honor of People's Choice Award for Favorite Male Country Artist!
With a field that included stars like Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, and Tim McGraw, that's quite an accomplishment!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see his ever-so-humble acceptance speech!
This sounds like it's gonna be a GREAT tour!
The multi-city tour looks like it's shaping up to be the best one yet, according to Hunter, that is!
