Country music has always been a unique genre of music. With its own sound, movies, and western style clothes, country music has become its own culture. At Sheplers, we celebrate this culture, particularly its fashion, and want to take a look back at some country star fashion from musicians who know how to pull off western wear.

Most Fashionable Country Music Stars Ever

As a western style clothing store, we know country fashion. So, we’ve compiled a list of who we think are some of the most stylish country artists of all time and how you can look like them.

Dolly Parton

Is there any surprise that Dolly Parton made the list? Her fashion style has always been as unique and fun as her. She has been rocking her signature sequins and fun prints for years.1 Most recently you may have seen her on stage at the Grammys for a tribute in her honor. Want to look like Dolly? Try our Liberty Wear Studded Leather Fringe Jacket found on our western store online.

Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson is a country music icon and had to make our list of most fashionable country music stars ever for that fact alone. You will more than often find him with a headband or black cowboy hat to top off his signature braids. His fashion is a throw back to simple with a lot of black t-shirts, jeans, and of course, a good pair of cowboy boots. Copy his simple look with a pair of Wrangler jeans, a graphic tee, and any one of our men’s cowboy boots.

Shania Twain

Though her fashion has changed over the years to keep up with the trends, this woman loves her cheetah print. Get the look with our Cowgirl Justice Women’s Cheetah Print Dress.

Roy Rogers

Known as the “King of the Cowboys,” Roy Rogers was the pinnacle of western cowboy clothing. Although probably most well-known for his acting career, we are adding him to the list. He seemed to always be sporting a fun jacket or shirt and a men’s cowboy hat. Throw it back to Roy Rogers with a men’s vintage western shirt.

Now that you know who we believe are some of the most fashionable country music stars ever, you can look like them too. Visit our western style clothing store to get everything you need to mimic one of these country music fashion icons. From men’s cowboy boots to women’s fringe handbags, you are just clicks away from a new look.

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. At Sheplers Western Wear, we are excited for next year’s red carpet, striking performances and the next country music Grammy winners. So, stock up on your formal western cowboy clothing as we anticipate this year’s other country music awards and next year’s Grammys.

Keep Your Jeans from Fading with These Tips

Jeans tend to fade in the washing machine. The soap, water, agitation, and more can discolor them or simply cause them to erode the dye and fade away. However, carefully taking care of your jeans will give them a long-lasting life. Follow the tips below from Sheplers, your one stop shop for all western style clothes, to keep your jeans from fading.

 

  1. Wash your jeans infrequently. If you’re casually wearing your jeans, you can wash dark ones every 3-4 wears, which will allow them to last considerably longer. If you prefer to wash your jeans after every wear, here’s something to consider: the fabric used to create a pair of jeans is thicker than other types of clothing, and as humans, we tend to sweat less from the lower part of our bodies. If you don’t like the idea of washing your jeans after wearing them three times, you can wash them every other wear.
  2. Turn them inside out. When you do wash your jeans, turn them inside out so the dark fabric isn’t in direct contact with the soap and water. Jeans that are washed inside out will maintain their color better than jeans washed regularly.
  3. Wash your jeans in cold water. Hot water can not only fade your jeans, but can also wear the threads out far more quickly than cold water does.
  4. Hang your jeans outside. Your dryer can make your jeans shrink, and can also lead to unnecessary wear and tear. The fresh outside air makes a great dryer to keep your jeans from fading. However, make sure your jeans aren’t in direct sunlight, because then hanging them outside to dry to keep them from fading can damage just as much as your dryer may!
  5. Wash your jeans with other dark garments. Jeans tend to fade less when they’re washed with other dark clothing. Keep your darks with darks.

 

The five suggestions above are enough to begin maintaining your beloved pair of blue jeans. If you’ve just about outworn your favorite pair, visit Sheplers, where you can find western style clothes and a brand new pair of favorite jeans.
