There are a surprising number of country artists who have been through near-death experiences. The seven country singers profiled in this video have somehow managed to escape huge tragedies: gunshot wounds, stabbings, horrifying car wrecks and more.

You've probably heard of some of them: Trace Adkins has experienced multiple brushes with death, and one of the most unforgettable incidents involves his now-ex-wife. Brantley Gilbert and Jon Pardi have both had scary experiences as well; they occurred before either artist had signed a record deal, so you may not be familiar with their stories ... but after hearing them, you probably won't forget.

George Jones, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams Jr. and Parmalee round out the seven near-death experiences mentioned in the clip above, and each has their own harrowing -- and miraculous -- story of survival. Press play on the video to hear more about each artist's escape from death.
