Best Costumes in Country Music Videos: A Little Halloween Help From Nashville

Still don’t know what you want to be for Halloween? We’re here to help. Some of the most memorable country music videos feature your favorite singers playing dress up. From Jake Owen‘s sexy cop uniform to Taylor Swift‘s marching band garb, The Boot counts down the best costumes in country videos, just in time for trick or treating.

10. Jake Owen, Sheriff

The Treat: Getting cuffed doesn’t seem like such a bad thing in the Florida native’s ‘Tell Me’ video. Jake plays a small town sheriff complete with badge, gun, cowboy hat and sexy agenda.

9. Carrie Underwood, Bride

The Trick: In what starts out as a fairytale storyline, Carrie is getting ready to say “I do” to her handsome beau, but then it turns out she has to trade her white dress for a black one.

if(typeof AOLVP_cfg===’undefined’)AOLVP_cfg=[];AOLVP_cfg.push({id:’AOLVP_74864928001′,’codever’:0.1,’autoload’:false,’autoplay’:false,’displaymnads’:true,’playerid’:’89761511001′,’videoid’:’74864928001′,’width’:476,’height’:357,’playertype’:'inline’,'stillurl’:'dynamic’,'videolink’:'#’,'videotitle’:'dynamic’,'videodesc’:”});

8. Toby Keith, Frat Boy

The Treat: Here’s a costume you can put together at the last minute, at little or no cost. Just grab a ball cap, button-down shirt and plastic cup, as Toby does in his ‘Red Solo Cup’ video. To play the part well, hit on lots of pretty women, say “dude” a lot and act like whatever’s in that red solo cup is the nectar of the gods.

if(typeof AOLVP_cfg===’undefined’)AOLVP_cfg=[];AOLVP_cfg.push({id:’AOLVP_1202826765001′,’codever’:0.1,’autoload’:false,’autoplay’:false,’displaymnads’:true,’playerid’:’89761511001′,’videoid’:’1202826765001′,’width’:476,’height’:357,’playertype’:'inline’,'stillurl’:'dynamic’,'videolink’:'#’,'videotitle’:'dynamic’,'videodesc’:”});

7. LeAnn Rimes, Jailbird

The Trick: In her retro ‘Nothin’ Better to Do’ video, LeAnn plays captured inmate Annie Jewel, who’s quite reminiscent of Roxy Hart from the legendary Broadway show, ‘Chicago,’ with her 1920′s style hairdo, sexy prison uniform and impressive dance moves.

if(typeof AOLVP_cfg===’undefined’)AOLVP_cfg=[];AOLVP_cfg.push({id:’AOLVP_us_15645903001′,’codever’:0.1,’autoload’:false,’autoplay’:false,’playerid’:’61371447001′,’videoid’:’15645903001′,’publisherid’:1612833736,’playertype’:'pageload’,'width’:476,’height’:357,’videotitle’:'Test’,'bgcolor’:”});

6. Pam Tillis, Cleopatra

The Treat: In addition to the many Cleopatra-style costumes, Pam gives us a lot of other Halloween ideas in her ‘Cleopatra Queen of Denial’ video. There are also cowboys, Pharaohs, temptresses and mummies, along with a lot of wacky ’80s fashion (and hair!).

5. Steel Magnolia, Danny & Sandy

The Trick: Steel Magnolia’s Meghan Linsey and Joshua Scott Jones mimic the ‘Grease‘ storyline in their delightful ‘Last Night Again’ video. You could go sweet or sexy for Megan’s ‘Pink Lady’ role, while Josh’s ‘Greaser’ character is easy to pull off with a leather jacket and plenty of hair gel.

if(typeof AOLVP_cfg===’undefined’)AOLVP_cfg=[];AOLVP_cfg.push({id:’AOLVP_773611245001′,’codever’:0.1,’autoload’:false,’autoplay’:false,’displaymnads’:true,’playerid’:’89761511001′,’videoid’:’773611245001′,’width’:476,’height’:357,’playertype’:'inline’,'stillurl’:'dynamic’,'videolink’:'#’,'videotitle’:'dynamic’,'videodesc’:”});

4. Taylor Swift, High School Marching Band Musician

The Treat: Instead of reaching into her closet full of sparkly, glamorous dresses, Taylor reached into her high school locker for her ‘You Belong With Me’ video. She plays the studious girl next door who dances in front of her mirror in pj’s and plays in the marching band. The trick is, she also plays the mean girl on the cheerleading squad, just in a brunette wig and a lot more makeup.

if(typeof AOLVP_cfg===’undefined’)AOLVP_cfg=[];AOLVP_cfg.push({id:’AOLVP_74790782001′,’codever’:0.1,’autoload’:false,’autoplay’:false,’displaymnads’:true,’playerid’:’89761511001′,’videoid’:’74790782001′,’width’:476,’height’:357,’playertype’:'inline’,'stillurl’:'dynamic’,'videolink’:'#’,'videotitle’:'dynamic’,'videodesc’:”});

3. Miranda Lambert, Greasers or Socials

The Trick: Laura Bell Bundy, Kellie Pickler and Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott help Miranda give both sweet and sassy Halloween inspiration in her ‘Only Prettier’ video. Set at a 1950s sock hop, the clip features the four lovely ladies in two different roles: “greasers” and “socials,” with catty claws coming out on both sides.

2. Faith Hill, Waitress, Nurse, Police Officer, Burglar, Meteorologist, Mom

The Treat: She may take your order or she may arrest you — regardless, she’s going to look smokin’ hot doing it. Faith plays several different characters in her ‘The Way You Love Me’ video, including a Halloween favorite: naughty nurse.

1. Thompson Square, Sonny & Cher

The Trick: In this real-life couple’s ‘I Got You’ video, they may have lost the ‘babe’ but they kept the fashion … flawlessly. Keifer and Shawna Thompson channel Sonny Bono and Cher in the clip, complete with bell bottoms, headbands and plenty of polyester.

if(typeof AOLVP_cfg===’undefined’)AOLVP_cfg=[];AOLVP_cfg.push({id:’AOLVP_921130594001′,’codever’:0.1,’autoload’:false,’autoplay’:false,’displaymnads’:true,’playerid’:’89761511001′,’videoid’:’921130594001′,’width’:476,’height’:357,’playertype’:'inline’,'stillurl’:'dynamic’,'videolink’:'#’,'videotitle’:'dynamic’,'videodesc’:”});
