Jennifer Nettles attends the 53rd annual CMA Awards at the Music City Center on Nov. 13, 2019 in Nashville.
 

Jennifer Nettles didn't come to play on the red carpet of the 2019 CMA Awards on Wednesday night (Nov. 13) -- but she did come to be played on the radio.

"Play Our F----n Records Please & Thank You," the hot-pink train of her white power suit read. 

On one of the biggest nights of country music, half of Sugarland couldn't let one of the genre's biggest issues -- gender inequality in radio play -- get swept under the rug. She wore it loud and proud on the red carpet, as the exterior of her outfit's train featured a drawing of a woman with the female gender symbol. On top of the train read "EQUAL PLAY" to further emphasize the issue within country music.
