10 Country Stars Who Drive American-Made Pickup Trucks
You’ve probably heard a lot about celebrities and their fabulous car collections. Famous people like Jay Leno often have an extensive collection of vintage or luxury vehicles (or both!). However, for some celebrities, it’s all about their truck. Country music stars like the 10 listed here probably value their good old American-made trucks as much, if not more, than any of the cars in their vehicle collections.
1. Brantley Gilbert’s Ford F-250
Brantley Gilbert may not sound like a stereotypical country music artist, but his choice of vehicles pretty much screams country. According to HotCars, he gave his F-250 the Rocky Ridge treatment with machine-finished, black powder-coated 20-inch wheels. A set of 35-inch Mickey Thompson ATZ tires completed the look. His truck definitely stands out from the crowd now – much like its owner.
2. Toby Keith’s 2015 Ford F-350
Toby Keith’s car collection includes some cool models like a 1934 Ford Convertible, but his plain black Ford truck is in stock. However, this mighty F-350 can handle rough terrain, haul heavy loads, and handle just about anything its superstar owner might need.
3. Luke Bryan’s Chevy Silverado
Luke Bryan has been a Chevy brand ambassador since 2016, so it’s no surprise he drives a Chevy Silverado. His latest model replaces the black Chevy Silverado 4×4 he totaled when he drove it to his catfish pond. Unlike many trucks on this list, Bryan’s is stock and lacks any customization or real personality.
4. Amber Marshall’s 2014 Dodge Ram 3500
This rather petite singer/actress (she’s 5ft 4in) does the chores of her ranch in her massive Ram 3500. He can carry tons of it, but Marshall handles it like a boss.
5. Brad Paisley’s 2014 Chevrolet Signature Silverado
Grand Ole Opry member Brad Paisley worked with the Chevrolet team to design his “Signature Edition” Silverado. The truck features a slightly lowered body and a custom audio system. The custom electric blue paint job includes custom logos on each entry door.
6. Jake Owen’s Ford F-250 Diesel
HotCars placed Jake Owen’s jacked-up Ford F-250 Diesel 18th on his list of 20 country singers with trucks. At least Owen’s was one of 11 “Nice” trucks on the list. Several of the trucks on this list were in the “Not So Nice” section of the HotCars list. The blacked-out Ford diesel stands tall on its oversized wheels and massive tires.
7. Kid Rock’s 2017 GMC Sierra 1500
Kid Rock’s Sierra is not stock. This lifted GMC Sierra has fender flares and a layer of “stealth coating” to protect the bumpers and hood. If you’re wondering what’s under that hood, it’s a Whipple supercharger that boosts engine output to 557 horsepower. This distinctive truck also features custom embroidery on the headrest and “Detroit Cowboy” badging.
8. Chase Rice’s 1985 Chevrolet Silverado
His old Chevy Silverado is the first truck Chase Rice ever bought, and he has a strong emotional connection to it. Speaking of his connection to the truck, this former NASCAR pit crew member said MotorTrend that “this is going to be mine until the day I die.”
9. Thomas Rhett’s Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Z71
Thomas Rhett’s black Silverado is ridden and blacked out, but otherwise it could belong to anyone. There’s nothing in there that screams, “I belong to a country star.” Maybe he and his family like it that way?
10. Miranda Lambert’s 1955 Chevrolet 3100
Miranda Lambert has owned Tammy, her red 1955 Chevy 3100, since she was just 17 years old. When her father bought her the truck, she found a Tammy Wynette tape inside – hence the name. Tammy (the truck) played a starring role in Lambert’s wedding to Blake Shelton in 2011 and also has a winery named after her. Needless to say, this classic truck fan has sworn to never part with her vintage red beauty.
