Thomas Rhett to Dress Up as Country Singer For Halloween

Pop singer Thomas Rhett is looking for a costume for a Halloween party this weekend. He’s already chosen the theme - country singer - but he’s searching for the perfect presentation, visiting thrift stores and western wear outlets across Nashville. 

“I did a Google image search for ‘country singer’ and it came back with lots of western hats and boot-cut jeans and stuff,” says Rhett. “That’s so foreign to me - it’s always enlightening to see how other cultures live!” He tries on a huge foam cowboy hat but quickly returns it to the rack. “If they had it with a flat brim maybe.”

Rhett’s day to day wardrobe usually includes hip t-shirts, fitted pants, and high-dollar sneakers while his stage presence leans more toward tropical wear, varsity jackets, and custom denim. The aesthetics of country music fashion are a world away from his typical flair, but he’s digging it. “Ha, they call this a nude suit, I believe,” laughs Thomas, holding up a rhinestone and flower covered blue jacket. “I think old country dudes like Jeb Pierce and Porter Ladner used to wear these… such swag!”

After a couple of hours, Rhett has narrowed his selections down to an all black Johnny Cash-inspired ensemble or a Hank Sr. style outfit. “Did you know Hank had a father who was also a country singer?” asks Rhett. 

Still undecided at press time, Rhett seems excited about the impact he’ll make when he steps into the party as someone so different from himself. “They won’t even recognize me.”

You Might Be Fake Country if... (Guest Submission)

...your mic stand went platinum but your album didn't...

You think love songs are supposed to be about trucks & tractors

All your songs are about dirt roads but you grew up in the city...
You think Porter Wagoner is a Jeep...

Your manager thought it would be cool to put a chick in the band 
but you're not sure which band member it is...

You think Flatt & Scruggs makes lawn mower engines...

You think "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" is a trick question...

You think a country shuffle is a cool new Spotify playlist...

You think the "Wabash Cannonball" is a cinnamon whiskey shot...

You think 3/4 time a law that helped your cousin get out of prison early

You spent more time picking out your wardrobe than writing your last single...

You only became a country singer to help you reach your goal of 
becoming a judge on TV karaoke contest


Thanks to John Deery of the John Deery Band for sending this in!

Inspirational Lyrics?

There are so many "inspiring" song lyrics set in pretty fonts with lovely background photos posted on Tumblr, Facebook and elsewhere that I, of course, had to set the concept on its head. Enjoy?

Top 10 Country Songs Most Soccer Moms Would Not Be Fond Of

Here's a countdown of 10 country songs that would not weigh easily on the sensibilities of most mainstream country radio listeners (now anyway - the Wagoner song made it to #2 in 1967). Feel free to add your own in the comments.

Can you imagine this playing on the radio after Taylor Swift's latest ditty? Me neither.

Hank and pals scream in honor of a "music artist" who frequently took a dump on stage and played in it (to put it nicely) and was also known for wallowing in self-drawn blood (to put it nicely again).

08. "Holding On So Tight" - Gary Floater (portion of the song at this link)
This ode to "punching the clown" might not rest easy on radio programmers' palates.

Lucinda has never been bashful about middle-aged sex. "Now I've got your sweetness all up in my hair"... TMI Lucy!

Unreasonable figures?

Pink champagne, candlelight, surprising the wife (and her lover ...with a knife!!)

Rodney's a born romantic, huh ladies?

03. "Delia's Gone" - Johnny Cash
This shockingly cold and violent song from the Man in Black is all the more disturbing because of who it's from.

I guess if you're as ugly as Coe, you've got to lay on the charm thick.

Hank returns to the countdown with this wordy-durd filled rant against Nashville, offering to put male and female sexual organs back into country music (were they ever there in the first place?) The D-word and the C-word get ample airtime.

A realllly honest movie poster

And tomorrow's theme....
I know it's only been a week since the last one, but tomorrow is Country Day 4! I generally try to keep the country days down to once a month, but I've just got so many covers "in stock" they gotta go up. See you tomorrow!!
