Carrie Underwood only wears ''minis'' because she's too short.

The 33-year-old singer has revealed she prefers to adorn short-length dresses and skirts for start studded events because she is conscious of her height and feels her body is ''lost'' when she wears long gowns.

Speaking to PEOPLE about her wardrobe choices, the blonde beauty said: ''I wear minis because I'm short.

''Sometimes I try dresses that are a little bit longer or even long dresses and I get lost in them because I'm five foot three. It just seems like above the knee works better for my height.''

Carrie, who is set to host this year's Country Music Association Awards alongside Brad Paisley, which will take place on Wednesday (02.11.16), has revealed she works out ''harder'' prior to attending an awards ceremony.

She explained: ''I definitely work out harder leading up to any awards show. I just want to feel my best and when I look back at pictures. I just want to be like, 'Alright, I worked hard for that.' So I just kind of amp it up, make sure if I have the time I use it wisely.

''I lean up my eating especially right before the show. And my workout routine becomes a little more all over full body leading up to [the show]. I do run more and try to sweat more just to burn fat.

''I just try to be strong. My legs are scarred from sports and from injuries, so I view them as being strong.''

And the 'Good Girl' hitmaker has admitted she will undertake a number of costume changes throughout tomorrow's event to see her celebrate the evolution of country style over the decades.

And the star has teased her outfits on social media by posting images of her embellished garments.

She captioned one image on her Instagram account: ''A look at another#CMAawards50 decade-inspired look for Wednesday night. Welcome to the#60s everyone! #CarrieByTheDecades#vintagestyle (sic).''
