Country music is well-known for its wild characters and crazy stories.
Like Hank William’s infamous arrest photo, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings spending over $1,000 a day on drugs and alcohol, and Merle Haggard spending 5 days on a boat naked with an unnamed female country star and $2 grand worth of cocaine, plus who knows how many more were stifled before the public got a hold of them…
When you’ve got stories like that, there’s undoubtedly going to be some nicknames that come from it, and for my money, country music is the genre with the best ones.
Here’s a few of the best nicknames in country music:
Eric Church – “Chief”
George Strait – “King George”
Johnny Cash – “Man in Black”
Blake Shelton – “Toad”
Jimmie Rodgers – “The Singing Brakeman” & “The Father of Country Music”
