10 Country Stars Who Are Ready for No-Shave November

With “No-Shave November” right around the corner, men are shaving off all of their facial hair to create a clean canvas to the masterpiece that’s about to be created. Facial hair takes on a life of its own depending on the man and the face.

Facial hair comes in all shapes and sizes from full on beards, to goatees and mustaches. Country music is full of men rocking a variety of facial hair. Here are the best of the best in a variety of categories.

Best long beard: William Lee Golden

If William Lee Golden’s beard could talk, I’m sure it would have some good stories to tell. This Oak Ridge Boy‘s beard is something to be envied. It take a lot of time and effort to not only grow but maintain a beard of that length. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed, sir.

Best mid-length beard: Zac Brown

Zac Brown is known for his beard. He switches it up every now and then, but mainly keeps at about a mid-length. His beard is long enough to make a statement, but short enough to not get in the way of his guitar-playing.

Best short beard: Thomas Rhett

Thomas Rhett‘s beard is a classic. This is what you’ll see the first couple weeks of No Shave November, before the beards get too wild. With his dark hair, Thomas Rhett’s well-maintained beard fits his face perfectly.

Best neck beard: Luke Bryan

Now, being a female, I’ve never grown a beard, but from what I’ve been told neck beards can be itchy. Hats off to you Luke Bryan for maintaining the glorious neck beard.

Best scruff: Chris Young

The art of the scruff isn’t as easy as it sounds. Scruff is something that is supposed to look effortless, but it also shouldn’t look sloppy. Chris Young masters the perfectly maintained scruff that everybody loves.

Best long-lasting beard: Ronnie Dunn


Would you even recognize Ronnie Dunn without his beard? I know I wouldn’t. This man’s beard is almost as legendary as he is. Ronnie Dunn has found the perfect style to fit his face and stuck with it and for that, we commend you.

Best 5 o’clock shadow: Sam Hunt

Sam Hunt is always rocking the perfect 5 o’clock shadow. The little amount of hair on his face that shows you he has the ability to grow a full beard, but likes to keep it somewhat tame is what gives him the title of Best Shadow.

Best mustache: Alan Jackson

I don’t think I’ve ever seen Alan Jackson‘s upper lip. His timeless mustache is not something everyone could pull off, but he sure does a good job.

Best goatee: Brad Paisley

Goatees might be the most underrated style of facial hair out there. I don’t get it. Not only is your chin and upper lip warm, but you can still feel comfortable knowing what your cheeks look like. It’s a win, win. Brad Paisley is known for always rocking a perfectly manicured goatee and for that, we congratulate you.

Best Band Facial Hair: Alabama


It takes a lot to maintain one face full of hair, but the men of Alabama have masted the art of maintaining three. Each with their own style, these men have mastered the art of being different but still the same.
