Wax on, Wax Off: See Photos of Country Stars’ Wax Figures
Many celebrities and public figures have been immortalized in wax by the famous Madame Tussauds — including a number of country stars! Shania Twain, Reba McEntire, Little Jimmy Dickens and more have been honored with wax figure likenesses of themselves.
A Nashville-area Madame Tussauds is set to open in April; it will be the company’s first themed attraction, titled “Soundtrack of America,” and will highlight those artists who have helped shape America’s musical landscape. The Music City location won’t be limited to country music, either: Artists from jazz, blues, pop and other genres will have wax figures there.
Artists featured at Madame Tussauds’ new location will include Minnie Pearl, Jimi Hendrix, Dickens, Patsy Cline, Blake Shelton, Johnny Cash, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Kenny Rogers, Beyoncé, Billie Holiday, Rihanna, Stevie Wonder and many others; Nashville characters Rayna James and Deacon Claybourne will also be among the wax figure likenesses. The Music City museum will be the first Madame Tussauds in Tennessee and the 22nd in the world.
Readers can flip through the photo gallery above to see some of the wax figures that have been created in country stars’ images. Some figures are extremely lifelike, while others — well, they’re just a bit off.
