While you might have planned your ticket purchase and how you’re getting there, you may be wondering what your first country concert outfit should be!

Denim – The Classic Choice

Denim shorts or pants are the classic choice for a country concert outfit. Whether you like a skinny or flared fit, high-rise or low-rise, you can’t go wrong with a pair of jeans. The rule of thumb at a country concert, though, is to go for a lighter wash jean as opposed to a dark wash like navy or black. For women we recommend the Levi Women’s Sea Daisy Drive Classic Crop Jeans – Cropped Leg to show off your cute boots and for men we recommend the classic Wrangler jeans in light blue.

Jackets – To Keep Warm

Your first country concert outfit should include a leather jacket in the winter so you can bundle up and stay warm. For milder weather, try a denim jacket with a beautiful embroidery. If you want to really add some pizazz, go for a fringe jacket! Aside from the style factor, just think of all the Boomerang possibilities.

Accessories – Less is More

Accessorize your first country concert outfit to take it to the next level. If you’re going to an outdoor country concert, a great watch or the perfect sunglasses are all you need. Keep a small fragrance in your purse to stay refreshed. If you’re going to an arena concert, style it up with a statement necklace or statement earrings with a little sparkle. Add a pretty silver hairclip to manage those lochs.

Saddle Up – Cowboy Boots Are a Must

At any country concert, you can never go wrong with a fantastic pair of cowboy boots. They are the classic choice and the ultimate must-wear when rocking to your favorite songs. Cowboy boots tie your first country concert outfit together, which is why they are the last thing to put on before you have the time of your life.

One Last Thing

Each outfit is unique to each person. Your first country concert out is worth a splurge, so go big on your outfit, but also go big on hair and makeup. Doll yourself up with a classic red lip like Taylor Swift or poof the hair like Dolly Parton. A country music concert is a time to enjoy yourself and sing along to all your favorite tunes. Just make sure to stay hydrated, snap a few pictures, and get ready to fall in love with the live country music concert experience.

Western Wear Shirt

Western wear shirts are a default in Mr. Shelton’s wardrobe. His seems to prefer neutral colors, or a classic plaid western shirt with rolled sleeves. His simple style of shirts makes his wardrobe perfect for everything from the everyday routine of running errands to a walk on the red carpet. If you want to copy Blake Shelton’s style, start by loading up on these basic button-down shirts.

Jacket

Blake Shelton’s jacket is often what differentiates his outfit from formal to casual. On any regular day, you may find him walking around town in a classic men’s leather jacket on top of one of his many western wear shirts. For more formal occasions like award shows, he will top off his western shirt with a plain, and once again, neutral-colored suit jacket. The jacket is probably unbuttoned, and he may or may not sport a tie. If your closet is currently missing these essentials, a nice black suit jacket is a good start.

Jeans

Like many country icons, Black Shelton is almost always in a good pair of sturdy jeans. Even on the red carpet, Blake Shelton is not afraid to throw on a pair of jeans. Together his suit jacket and jeans complete his classy, but not too formal look. Check out our Wrangler jeans to find a style that will look good and last.

Red carpet and music awards

On Sunday February 10, stars from across the country gathered at the Staples Center in Los Angeles to celebrate the best music from this past year and the industry’s brightest stars. Top country music stars strutted their stuff down the red carpet in an assortment of formal country wear including, of course, some cowboy hats and men’s cowboy boots. Walter Payne rocked a large belt buckle and Dolly Parton showed off a fun western dress. As a leading western style clothes retailer, we were impressed.

Country music has always had a reputation for being a category all its own, but in many respects, this year country music was in the spotlight. There were country music performances that rocked the night and country music Grammy winners walking away delighted.

Red carpet and music awards

Country Music Grammy Winners

It was a good night for country music and country music artists. There were plenty of country music Grammy winners this year.

Brandi Carlile walked away with three Grammys for Best Americana Album, Best American Roots Song, and Best American Roots Performance. She was also nominated for 3 other awards.

Dan + Shay, best known for their hit song “Tequila,” joined the ranks of country music Grammy winners. They took home their first Grammy award for Best Country Duo/Group.

The country music star of the night, however, was Kacey Musgraves, going home with four Grammys and a wonderful performance. Although competition was tough, Kacey Musgraves won Best Country Solo Performance for “Butterflies,” Best Country Song for “Space Cowboy,” Best Country Album and the biggest honor, Album of the Year, for Golden Hour. She also won Best Country Album in the same night.

Country Music Performances at The Grammys

Kacey Musgraves performed her song “Rainbow” on stage in a white gown as the lights behind her glowed all the colors of the rainbow. She later walked away with both Best Country Album and Album of the Year.

Though her hands were full with her three Grammys, Brandi Carlile performed her well-known song “The Joke.”

Dan+ Shay jumped up to sing “Tequila” as members of the audience sang along to the hit song.

Country music’s truly shining moment is attributed to the tribute performance honoring country star icon, Dolly Parton. Numerous stars graced the stage alongside Dolly Parton herself during the performance to sing and honor this country music legend. Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Miley Cyrus, Maren Morris, and Little Big Town joined Dolly Parton at different moments to sing a medley of her most popular music including “Jolene” and “9 to 5.”

The 2019 Grammys were, once again, a night to remember for country music stars, who were the center of attention in many ways.

Summer Tailgates with Country Style

Summer is the time to be outside spending time with family and friends, and what better way to do that by summer tailgating? Sheplers, one of the best country stores online, knows everything about throwing a western, country style tailgate – so look no further! Follow these country style tailgate tips and get to planning.

 

First things first – grab an SUV and convert your SUV into a table. All you have to do is open the trunk, add a table cloth and put a cooler full of drinks, some snacks, and whatever food you have. This is also a great meeting place and everyone will love sitting around the trunk.

 

Next, you have to pick the perfect menu. Summer tailgating is great for sliders, hot dogs, pulled pork sandwiches, veggies – just about any sort of finger food you can think of. Your food display is just as important as your menu. It’s a good idea to splurge on quality condiments and drinks for your guests. You should always present your food and drinks in unique serving trays and mixers. You can add some fun, festive straws, plates, and napkins to enhance your set up!

 

Once you have your menu set, you absolutely cannot skimp on presentation. A little decoration goes a long way! Look for some fun placemats and table runners. It’s also important to have another table set up for any extra space you may need.

 

Lastly, Sheplers recommends setting up tailgate games! Tailgate games keep you and your guests busy throughout the entire tailgate, and they make for even more memories. Cornhole is a great tailgate game because it allows guests to mingle and play the game while also being able to hold onto a cold drink too.

 

Sheplers, one of the best western stores online, have professionals seasoned in summer tailgating. Take the tips from us and get to partying!
