The Boot rounds up this week's most memorable quotes from country stars.

"I know it's a bit early for Christmas songs, however I've been walking around singing 'Rudolph the Blue Nose Reindeer.' Ya see, I was reaching into the freezer for another popsicle and my nose happened to be sticking out in the way of the slamming freezer door! OUCH! It nearly knocked me down, but I never let go of that popsicle! --Jimmy Wayne (Source: Jimmy's MySpace blog)

"She really wanted to do it naturally ... I would have done it with all the drugs they could find!" --Dierks Bentley on wife Cassidy, who gave birth to their daughter, Evie, last week (Source: PEOPLE)

"People call me dumb, but compared to them, I'm like a rocket scientist!" --Kellie Pickler, talking to The Boot about contestants on 'Rock of Love With Bret Michaels'

"I went through a period of a week in seventh grade where I would draw on a beauty mark on my face with a black Sharpie. I'd put it in different places -- on my upper lip or on my cheek. I don't know what I thought people would think -- that I had a traveling beauty mark or something! I realized that was ridiculous and stopped doing it." --Taylor Swift (Source: PEOPLE)

"We were just ready to give up on it and walk away from it, because there's nothing easy about having a relationship doing what we do. But we just decided that as miserable as we are together, it's way more miserable when we're apart." --Blake Shelton on girlfriend Miranda Lambert (Source: CMT)

"They play George Strait and Alan Jackson. But I don't understand why they (country radio programmers) play two artists that are pure country, traditional, but they won't play any other older artists. And the only thing that is tied to is good looks, I guess! [laughs] You've gotta be long and tall and have a cute little behind!" --George Jones, in an interview with The Boot

"I'm just glad to have lived this long! I've never been afraid of birthdays or growing old. I think it's kinda cool." --Alan Jackson on turning 50 (Source: Country Weekly)
