Ronnie Dunn – Then and Now

Ronnie Dunn keeps a shaggy goatee and wild head of hair in 2013, but when he and Kix Brooks first broke onto the country music scene in the early '90s, he was much less rugged. The red-haired singer smiling at you in this 'Then' picture looks ready for church. Heck, he almost looks ready to lead the congregation!

Chris Young – Then and Now

Chris Young was discovered on 'Nashville Star,' and this 'Then' picture shows the at the time 20-year-old crooner doing his best to win the USA Network's singing competition. He would be successful, and in the years since, he's bulked up and changed hats. Back then, his headwear was inspired by Toby Keith. Today, he lets his dark locks blow free in the wind.

Miranda Lambert – Then and Now

Miranda Lambert was just a skinny little thing when, at age 19, she auditioned for the first season of 'Nashville Star.' A decade ago, she was simply a Texas girl looking to break into the music business. She's still that girl from the Lone Star State at heart, but as you can see by comparing pictures, she's grown into a confident woman with a mantel full of honors and accolades.

Rascal Flatts’ Jay DeMarcus – Then and Now

The years have been good to Rascal Flatts bassist Jay DeMarcus. The singer looks healthier today than he did in the picture from almost a decade ago. His facial hair distinguishes him from the young up-and-comers he and his bandmates were in the early '00s. DeMarcus now looks more corporate CEO than rockstar, but the style befits the modern-day musician.

Big and Rich – Then and Now

A decade has changed a few things about rowdy country hitmakers Big and Rich. Big Kenny looks more distinguished these days, with a few time lines etched into his oft-smiling face, and both men have filled out. The outfits they chose in the nearly 10 years between these two pictures are very, very different.

Kix Brooks – Then and Now

When Brooks and Dunn broke into country music in the early '90s, they weren't the typical newcomers. Both Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn had experience as solo artists but -- as you can see in this 'Then' pic of Brooks -- they still carried themselves with some bravado. Two things have remained the same about the 'Moonshine Road' singer, however.

Little Jimmy Dickens – Then and Now

Little Jimmy Dickens has been a Country Music Hall of Famer longer than many of today's stars have been alive. The 92-year-old legend still takes the stage at the Grand Ole Opry and greets new artists as they wait nervously for their time to shine. As you can see from the 'Then' picture, much has changed about Dickens in those years -- but two things remain the same.

Dolly Parton – Then and Now

In 1965, Dolly Parton hadn't yet adopted the elaborate wigs she proudly sports today, but her hair was still 10 feet tall and perhaps bulletproof. The famous singer is beautiful now, but at age 19 she was more of a natural beauty who relied less on makeup.

Eric Church – Then and Now

Six years have made a big difference in the career and style of Eric Church. He's gone from fresh-faced newcomer in 2006 to hardened, outlaw hitmaker in 2012. You'll see two things in his 'Then' picture rarely visible today. His hair, and what looks like the beginnings of a smile.

Vince Gill – Then and Now

Shortly before Vince Gill's career really took off in the late '80s, the singer and guitarist kept a well-conditioned mane of hair. If he kept those locks into his mid-'90s glory days, he'd surely have had shampoo companies like Pantene and Suave knocking each other over to sign him up as a celebrity endorser. In some ways, it's sad that he cut his mullet-like 'do, but in other ways... not so much.
