Country Style (Revisited)

Modern country icons reboot Nashville's look as well as its sound

By Michael Shilling
Special to MSN Music

It used to be that country music's visual style held to a pretty narrow band. You had your Stetson, your bolo tie and your cowboy boots. You were either clean-shaven or full-bearded. You kept to solid colors and short hair heavy on the pomade. Not anymore. Today's male country stars do what they please with their appearance. Sometimes they don't even look "country" at all. To demonstrate how much has changed, we put together a gallery showing the wide range of today's country style, with a few old-school icons as benchmarks.
