It’s not uncommon for country stars to take liberties with birth names to create a perfect stage name. Some stars create a totally new moniker for their professional work, others just make alterations. Of the stars that invented totally new names that have no connection to the one on their birth certificate, which do you think is the best? 

Six country stars are included in today’s readers poll, including Patsy Cline (Virginia Patterson Hensley), Wynonna Judd (Christina Claire Ciminella), Shania Twain (Eileen Regina Edwards), Johnny Paycheck (Donald Eugene Lytle), Kid Rock (Robert James Ritchie) and Colt Ford (Jason Farris Brown). If you can think of one not included on this list of Country Stars Real Names, leave it in the comments section below.

Next Poll: Taylor Swift Blonde or Brunette
