They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but when it comes to height, you never really can tell how tall a person is standing until you see them in person. Such is the case for these 26 tall country singers.

If you think it’s just a heeled cowboy boot or a high heel making them look tall, you might want to take a closer look. Considering the average height for men (5 feet, 9 inches) and women (5 feet, 7 inches), these country stars are topping more than just the hit country charts.

Here are the 46 tallest country singers.

1. Toby Keith

The “Big Dog Daddy” will start this tall country singers list.

Toby Keith stands at a massive 6 feet, 4 inches tall. We bet that has him singing, “How Do You Like Me Now” ladies?

4. Blake Shelton

Blake Shelton is one of those country artists who is always sporting his signature cowboy boots with even a slight heel. He certainly doesn’t need it.

The “Sangria” singer is the signature example of tall, dark, and handsome, standing 6 feet, 5 inches tall. Gwen Stefani must have a sore neck after gazing up at her husband all day, considering she only stands 5 feet, 6 inches. We’re guessing she doesn’t mind, though.

There are many male country singers passing the 6-foot-tall mark on our tallest country singers list, and “I Drive Your Truck” singer Lee Brice is no exception. He’s standing 6 feet, 3 inches tall, and that’s no “Rumor.”  

6. Hank Williams

25. Trisha Yearwood

Unlike many of the wives of some men on our tallest country singers list, Trisha Yearwood is well-balanced against her 6-foot-tall husband, Garth Brooks.

The “She’s in Love with the Boy” singer is 5 feet, 9 inches tall. All she needs is three-inch heels to match her “Ain’t Goin’ Down (Til the Sun Comes Up)” singing husband, which is pretty average for many women.

26. Taylor Swift

While Taylor Swift is not a country singer anymore (not that we ever believe she actually was), we’ll appease her fans since she gets to be another of the few female singers who make our tall list.

Without those heels, she’s already tall and thin, standing 5 feet 11 inches tall. That means she’s passing 6 feet when she does put those heels on.

We “Believe” both are two of the most tall, dark, and handsome artists in the business.

34. Sam Hunt

He’s the tallest of the four famous faces in the “Pontoon” group. He stands at 5 feet, 11 inches, while Karen Fairchild and Jimi Westbrook stay true to that average height measurement of men and women. The blonde bombshell of the group, Kimberly Schlapman, is the shortest of them all at 5 feet, 6 inches.

38. Jennifer Wayne

We’ve got another female making a rare appearance on our tallest country singers list.

Jennifer Wayne, vocalist and guitarist for the country group Runaway June, may wear high heels, but she sure doesn’t need them. She must take after her 6-foot, 3-inch-tall grandfather, John Wayne because she stands at 5 feet, 11 inches tall.

39. Dave Haygood

40. Hillary Scott

41. Sara Evans

Sara Evans may claim that things don’t have to be “Perfect,” but we find it pretty perfect that we see her appear on the tallest country singers list.

The “You’ll Always Be My Baby” singer is right there with Scott, standing at 5 feet, 9 inches.

42. Scotty McCreery

Scotty McCreery won all our hearts when his 16-year-old self waltzed into the American Idol auditions, singing “Your Man” by Josh Turner.

His grown-up physique matches that deep, grown-up voice. The “Five More Minutes” singer is 5 feet, 10 inches tall.

43. Josh Turner

Speaking of Josh Turner, he’s another one of the tallest country singers in the music business.

John Michael Montgomery is the ultimate romantic, with such songs as “I Swear” and “I Love the Way You Love Me” in his repertoire list.

That’s not the only thing he’s got going for him. He’s nice and tall, too, at approximately 6 feet, 2 inches.

45. Billy Ray Cyrus

Billy Ray Cyrus may have an “Achy, Breaky Heart,” but he certainly isn’t lacking in height.

The singer, who was just as famous for his signature mullet as he was for his songs, is one of those tall country singers who can say they stand at 6 feet even.

46. Kristian Bush

Sugarland is easily one of the most popular duos in country music. The male representative of the “Stay” singers, Kristian Bush, is easily the tallest. He stands at 5 feet, 11 inches tall.

It creates quite a height difference between him and his counterpart, Jennifer Nettles, who is only 5 feet, 4 inches tall.

47. Big Kenny

Big Kenny, he certainly is. The first half of the hit-making duo Big & Rich, best known for songs like “Comin’ to Your City,” “Holy Water,” and “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy),” stands at 6 feet, 4 inches tall. 

That’s without his top hat. This tall country singer is even more elevated compared to his professional partner, John Rich, who, by comparison, is only 5 feet, 8 inches tall.
