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?

2. Vince Gill
Vince Gill is the ultimate modern country crooner with a big heart. Well, he’s got a big build to match.
The “When I Call Your Name” singer stands up proud at 6 feet, 3 inches tall.
3. Tyler Hubbard
Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line is another one of those men of country music who stands high on our tall country singers list.
When he’s ready to go out and “Cruise,” we bet he prefers it to be in a top-down ride, considering his 6 feet, 2 inches tall height.
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.

5. Lee Brice
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
Hank Williams was one of those legendary country singers of the day. Although his career was short-lived, it shone bright with such hits as “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” and “I Saw the Light.”
He was undoubtedly a tall specimen, too, that was sure to have the ladies swooning. He was 6 feet tall.

Kane Brown has many hit songs that fans have grown to love. One of his most famous is “Heaven,” and he’s certainly physically closer to “Heaven” than the rest of us.
Standing at 6 feet, 2 inches, he’s definitely one of the tall country singers in the business.
11. Chris Stapleton
Despite his scruffy exterior, Chris Stapleton has one of country music’s most recognizable and mesmerizing voices.
Considering he’s 6 feet, 1 inch tall, he isn’t hard to miss either in a crowd, especially if the “Halo” singer is sporting his signature cowboy hat.

12. George Jones
George Jones was a country music legend, bringing one of the most classic country love songs to the world in “He Stopped Loving Her Today.”

16. Johnny Cash
Johnny Cash was not just the “Man in Black.” He was the tall “Man in Black.”
The “Ring of Fire” singer was 6 feet, 2 inches tall.
17. Kenny Rogers
Want to take a guess or perhaps place a bet on how tall “The Gambler” singer stood? Kenny Rogers was one of the tall country singers, standing nearly 6 feet tall.

You may be surprised to find out how tall Morgan Wallen is standing.
The “Whiskey Glasses” singer is 5 feet, 11 inches tall.
21. Terri Clark
It’s about time we saw a woman representing on our tallest country singers list.
Terri Clark, best known for songs such as “I Just Wanna Be Mad” and “I Wanna Do It All,” stands 5 feet, 10.5 inches tall. She certainly doesn’t need high heels to put a little lift in her shoe.
22. Charles Kelley
You thought we’d revealed the tallest country singer on our list, but get ready for this one. Charles Kelley of Lady A is definitely one to beat. “The Driver” singer stands at 6 feet, 6 inches tall.
23. Trace Adkins
Trace Adkins doesn’t just have long locks. He’s got quite a height to match.
Like Kelley, the “Hot Mama” singer is a whopping 6 feet, 6 inches tall. With those cowboy boots, though, you could probably add an inch or two more.
24. Faith Hill
Faith Hill is another woman repping as one of the tall country singers out there.
She is just barely above average, standing at 5 feet, 8 inches tall, but the “Mississippi Girl” is still one of the taller women in the genre.

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.
27. Chris Young
We’re back with the 6-foot and above tall country singers. Chris Young, best known for hits such as “Tomorrow” and “Save Water and Drink Beer,” stands 6 feet, 4 inches tall.
28. Tim McGraw
Like Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are yet another well-balanced country couple.
While Hill stands at 5 feet, 8 inches, her superstar husband, McGraw, is only a couple of inches taller at 5 feet, 10 inches. If that isn’t another piece of the puzzle with their electric “It’s Your Love” chemistry, we don’t know what is.
29. Cole Swindell
Cole Swindell isn’t just an accomplished singer. He’s also an established songwriter in country music, writing for fellow tall country singers such as Luke Bryan, Chris Young, and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard.
He fits right in the mix, holding his own at 5 feet, 10 inches tall.
30. George Strait
Let’s face it. George Strait is the King of Country music, and you won’t be able to change our mind.
The handsome, brooding cowboy may not be in the 6 feet and above club, but he is still one of the tall country singers, standing at 5 feet, 10 inches tall.
31. Keith Urban
Here’s an interesting fact when it comes to Keith Urban.
While the “Days Go By” singer has earned his place as one of the tallest country singers at 5 feet, 10 inches, you’d never know it when you see him escorting the love of his life. He is one of the few on our list who actually stands shorter than his partner. His wife, actress Nicole Kidman, stands 5 feet, 11 inches tall.
32. Ronnie Dunn
Ronnie Dunn, one half of the award-winning duo Brooks and Dunn, is yet another 6 feet, 4 inches tall cowboy on our tallest country singers list. His “Red Dirt Road” partner in crime isn’t far behind either.
33. Kix Brooks
Speaking of Brooks and Dunn, the other half of the equation, Kix Brooks, is just about right there with Dunn, standing at 6 feet, 2 inches tall.
We “Believe” both are two of the most tall, dark, and handsome artists in the business.
34. Sam Hunt
Sam Hunt may be singing about “Body Like a Back Road,” but he certainly stands as tall as a highway. He towers over many at 6 feet, 4 inches tall.
35. Eric Church
They say smoking leads to stunted growth, but that’s not true for “Smoke a Little Smoke” singer Eric Church. He’s plenty tall at 6 feet, 2 inches tall.
36. Brian Kelley
Tyler Hubbard isn’t the only member of Florida Georgia Line that stands tall. In fact, he’s the slightly taller of the pair. The “This is How We Roll” singer is 6 feet, 3 inches tall.
37. Phillip Sweet
Little Big Town is another country group with plenty of tall country singers making them up.
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
We may have established that Charles Kelley is one of the tallest country singers on our list, but he’s not the only tall one in Lady A.
While Dave Haygood might not stand quite as tall, he is part of the 6-foot and over club. The multi-instrumentalist of the group is 6 feet and 2 inches tall.
40. Hillary Scott
Let’s not forget the “lady” of Lady A. Hillary Scott holds her own next to the boys. The “Thy Will” singer is 5 feet, 9 inches tall.
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.
The “Long Black Train” singer’s 6-foot-tall height seems to fit his signature deep vocals that constantly drive us crazy.
44. John Michael Montgomery
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.
