At the age of 50, Troy Gentry was shockingly killed in a fatal helicopter crash two months ago.
Before passing away, Gentry had promised his 15-year-old daughter, Kaylee, that he would take her to her first award show this year. This year at the CMA Awards, the singer's widow, Angie, fulfilled that promise.
Angie and Troy had been married for nearly 20 years before he was killed in the freak accident. Angie had also survived breast cancer, having undergone chemotherapy, a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery before being cleared by doctors in 2015.
That mother-daughter duo walked the red carpet and turned heads.
But that wasn't the most notable part of the night.
