Arrests don't happen often in country music, and typically when they do, they're for false charges -- or at worst, an alcohol-related offense. While a few of these famous country music mug shots are for more serious crimes, none resulted in long jail or prison sentences, thankfully.

The mug shots collected here provide a look at our favorite stars without their makeup, dark glasses or even cowboy hats. A few of the mugs are funny, but a few are sad, and at least one country music mug shot is pretty frightening. Click the big orange button below to see Country Music Mug Shots.
