The couple looked absolutely stunning as they walked the carpet hand-in-hand while posing for photos along the way. As the flashes of the cameras lit up the red carpet, Riley and Sophia flashed their best smiles for photographers. 

Riley sported a classic black suit with his hair slicked back, while Sophia opted for an ocean blue mini dress. 

This marks the couple’s first public appearance together. See more photos of the couples on the CMT Music Awards red carpet HERE.
