Country Stars in Halloween Costumes – 10 Best Pictures
Dressing like your favorite celebrity for Halloween is a good way to impress friends and family at a costume party. And while stars like Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift and Kellie Pickler are celebrities themselves, they still like to take part in playing dress-up for Halloween. On this list of country stars in Halloween costumes, few of the artists went for a quick scare with their looks. Most -- like Lee Ann Womack -- will likely just get an emphatic "Oh my gosh. No she didn't!" Take a look at these pictures, and tell us who you think did the best job coming up with a creative and fun way to celebrate Halloween.
Sugarland's Kristian Bush dressed up as Indiana Jones' father, Dr. Jones, last Halloween. It's a great recreation of the character, but it's a little obscure. The band has always danced to the beat of a different drummer, however, which is why fans love them so much.
Country trio Love and Theft's Halloween costumes consisted of some sort of redneck hunting team during a Halloween concert two years ago. That's Eric Gunderson without the shirt, Stephen Barker Liles in the middle and former member Brian Bandas on the lefthand side. Now a duo, Love and Theft recently released a self-titled album.
This is obviously an old Halloween picture of Carrie Underwood, but it's just so cute we had to include it. Underwood is married to hockey player Mike Fisher now, so perhaps the pair will do a couple's outfit for their Halloween costumes this year.
Dierks Bentley dressed up as one of the rescued Chilean miners for Halloween 2010. His ensemble included a full-size Chilean flag, hard hat complete with headlight and plenty of black face smudge. It was a popular costume in 2010, as the 33 men were rescued just weeks before Halloween.
Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood were aiming for Reba McEntire, Ronnie Dunn and Kix Brooks with their Halloween costumes in 2010. They ended up with quasi-cartoonish recreations of the famous redhead and the country duo. Haywood looks more like a 19th century Texas oil prospector than the famous mustachioed country singer, but the headset microphone is a nice touch.
Kellie Pickler has proven she loves coming up with Halloween costumes. In 2010, she dressed up as Dolly Parton for an appearance on 'Ellen.' She's also dressed up as Lucille Ball from 'I Love Lucy,' and as a giant hot dog. We're not 100% sure the hot dog was actually a Halloween costume, but it's likely not part of her everyday wardrobe.
That's a childhood picture of 'American Idol' winner dressed as Elvis Presley. Even at a young age, Scotty McCreery clearly took his love of the King very seriously, although his sidekick isn't doing much to help his street cred. Throughout the show, McCreery paid tribute to Presley with spot-on impersonations or by singing his music. He showed he's got a little of the King's stage charisma in him as well.
The only way Taylor Swift can go trick-or-treating is if she is wearing a full mask. A few years ago, that's exactly what she and a friend did. Dressed as Chewbacca from the 'Star Wars' series, the pair went hunting for candy. In this picture, the Halloween costumed ladies seem to be taking a break or arguing about something. Perhaps they couldn't agree on which Swift song Princess Leia would like best.
Miranda Lambert's spooky skeleton looks more irritated than fright-inducing. She wears an expression that seems to be saying "Blake made me do it." 2011 was a year of dressing up for Lambert, including a beautiful white dress to marry Shelton in May and an angry yet still sexy scowl as one-third of the Pistol Annies. We like that the couple even put Halloween costumes on their dogs.
Lee Ann Womack and her family went for the many looks of Lady Gaga last Halloween. They seem to have them all down, although we don't see anyone in a meat dress, nor is anyone mimicking Gaga's surly Joe Calderone character.
