Running out of ideas for Halloween costumes? Here are a few ideas that won’t break the bank and perhaps earn you some cash if you enter a costume contest! Here are our top picks for Country Music Halloween Costume Ideas, several of which contain a few folks from Kentucky:
Eddie Montgomery: To create Kentucky native Eddie Montgomery Halloween Costume, get a Large Black Hat (Amish Man’s Hat will work), a long black coat, black button up shirt (cut off sleeves), black jeans, goatee, and the infamous red cowboy boots. Extra points if you can twirl a mic stand.
Kenny Chesney: If you are bald and clean shaved, this will be easy to do. All you need is a cut off t-shirt, tight light blue jeans, cowboy boots, and white cowboy hat.
Taylor Swift: Taylor Swift’s Halloween costume should be fairly easy to do. All you need is a cute sundress, cowboy boots, long blonde curly wig, and a guitar.
Toby Keith: Toby Keith’s look is another easy one to do for Halloween. Grab a brown Cowboy hat scrunched up like a taco, a bluejean jacket, t-shirt, jeans that match jacket, and cowboy boots.
Jamey Johnson: Jamey Johnson’s Halloween costume can easily be done if you have a really nice beard, or long hair. Otherwise, go to a Halloween store and grab a Jesus beard. Add that to a black tshirt, a pair of jeans, and black boots. Extra points for guitar with lots of autographs.
Willie Nelson: One of the traditional Halloween costumes would be Willie Nelson. You need long hair with braids, a black tshirt, black jeans, and guitar w/red, white & blue strap.
Dolly Parton: Dolly Parton Halloween costumes are very popular and very easy to do. You need a good blonde wig, red and white checkered shirt and Blue jeans OR hot pink dress, and long pink nails. Extra points for adding a butterfly piece of jewelry.
Reba McEntire: For Reba McEntire Halloween Costume, you can do an 80s look with red curly hair or modern day look with straight hair. Be bold and pair it with a red dress and play the part of Fancy.
Carrie Underwood: Carrie Underwood Halloween Costume is all about showing off some leg. Grab a straight blonde hair wig, along with a mini-dress, and high heels. Optional would be a glittery microphone.
Billy Ray Cyrus: Grab your mullet, a tshirt, tight bluejeans, and white sneakers to be Mr. Achy Breaky Heart, aka Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana’s dad – Billy Ray Cyrus. Extra bonus points for those that can do the actual dance!
Dierks Bentley: You could be Dierks Bentley or Billy Currington by pairing up a blonde curly wig, black T-shirt, jeans, and microphone.
Sunny Sweeney: A Sunny Sweeney Halloween costume can be seen “from a table away.” All you need is a blonde wig with a black streak, Merle Haggard tshirt, jeans, and guitar with rhinestones around the edge. Bonus points for tattoo that says “Mama Tried” on the inside of your wrist.
