Honoring America's day of independence is always a special occasion, and country stars celebrated the country's 241st birthday in style!

If there's one genre of music that knows how to be patriotic, it's country music, and some of the genre's biggest stars did not hold back with their 2017 Fourth of July festivities! Celebrating the occasion in a variety of ways, Chris Young partied with a big crowd in downtown Nashville where he treated them to a set of his hit songs, while Kelsea Ballerini and Jason Aldean took to the beach with their loved ones.

Thomas Rhett and Jessie James Decker made the holiday a family affair, dressing their kids up in adorable, festive outfits. But Lauren Alaina and Brett Eldredge may tie for the title of Most Creative, with Alaina going all out (as usual) with an American flag ensemble, and Eldredge choosing an equally decorative outfit (and featured his dog). The clear winner this Fourth of July was John Rich — he dyed his mustache red, white and blue!
