Oh, the mullet. The iconic hairstyle made an unforgettable (and unflattering) impact on country music in the 90s. One country superstar even carried the horrid trend on into the 2000s. Take a look back at the most memorable mullets in country music.
Billy Ray Cyrus - Perhaps the best-known mullet of them all belonged to Billy Ray Cyrus. The infamous hairstyle and his global-selling debut album, "Some Gave All," was the biggest buzz of the early 90s. Billy Ray recorded, "I Want My Mullet Back" in 2006.
Blake Shelton - The mullet trend came to an end in the late 90s, but in 2001 an up-and-coming artist from Oklahoma still seemed to wear the hairstyle. Blake Shelton said goodbye to his dark locks for good in 2006. It was a good call on Blake's part; People Magazine named him one of the most sexiest men alive in 2012.
Tim McGraw - A peak at Tim McGraw's album artwork in the early 90s shows the future superstar's curly mullet. His fashion forward choices today resemble a classy, put-together man, but looking at those early record covers and music videos, you would have never of guessed it.
Joe Diffie - His hits "John Deere Green" and "Third Rock From The Sun" aren't the only memorable moments from Joe Diffie's career. He also sported one of the many mullets in country music. Joe is certainly an impressionable artist; Thomas Rhett wrote "1994" which pays homage to the "Ships That Don't Come In" singer. Jason Aldean then recorded the song and made it a top twenty radio hit this year.
Toby Keith - If you can get past his sparkling eyes and that weak-in-the-knees smile, then you'll recall that Toby Keith also had a mullet. While his mullet days are long gone, Toby Keith's curly locks are still tearing up the road. Look for his next album, "Drinks After Work" to be released on October 29, 2013.
Diamond Rio - What's more cringe-worthy than one mullet? A whole band full of mullets. Diamond Rio was in sync with their excellent harmonies and superb live performances, so it was only fitting that their hairstyles coincided. Check out their website to see where they are performing next.
Vince Gill - Whether he was styling a mullet, long hair during his Pure Prairie League days, or even no hair at all, ladies seemed to always soon over Vince Gill. Regardless of his fashion, Vince continues to shine as one of country music's biggest and best stars. Check out "Back To Bakersfield," his latest release featuring Paul Franklin.
Little Texas - God blessed Texas and the members of Little Texas with hair that set them apart from their country counterparts. The band racked up hit after hit, including the radio crossover "What Might Have Been." Catch them on tour and relish their rocking country sound.
Tracy Lawrence - One of country music's most recognizable voices, Tracy Lawrence, sported a mullet throughout the 90s. While his hits are consistent, his hairstyle didn't stick around. The "Time Marches On" singer often posts his favorite photos from days gone by on his social media pages. Follow him on Facebook.
Troy Gentry - One half of the award-winning duo, Montgomery Gentry, Troy Gentry is never to shy away from making bold fashion and hair choices. While these days the “If You Ever Stop Loving Me” singer showcases a clean-cut look, Troy used to rock a mullet.
