Blake Shelton Onesie? Rascall Flatts Thong? Your Gift Guide to Country Artists' Weirdest Merch
Did we mention Blake’s adult onesies come equipped with a butt flap?
With just a few shopping days left until Christmas, it’s time for our guide to the weirdest and wackiest merchandise being offered by country stars. We scoured the online stores of nearly 60 artists to find the 16 most unusual items on sale, ranging in price from $3 to nearly $400 — just in case you’re stuck for a gift idea for the country fans in your life.
Almost as surprising as what we did find is what we didn’t. Old Dominion, for example, doesn’t offer the “snapback” hat that inspired its latest single. (It does have one hat for sale, but it’s unclear whether it snaps in the back or uses a buckle or Velcro.) And Chris Janson is clearly missing an opportunity by not offering a branded Yeti 110 mentioned in the lyrics of his hit “Buy Me a Boat.” But since those high-end coolers cost upward of $300, perhaps he felt there wouldn’t be too many takers.
For Chesney’s furry fans, this collar is available in three sizes and boasts an “easy-clip plastic buckle.” Dog not included.
Packaged inside of recycled wine bottles, these candles are an “all-natural soy wax blend of relaxing scents,” personally selected by McEntire, with 100% cotton wicks and a burn time of 80 hours, according to her website. They come in three scents, but the one named for her “Pray for Peace” song is sold out. The other offerings are “Room to Breathe” (a blend of black tea, fig and citrus) and “Oklahoma Wind” (complex notes of leather, tobacco and musk with subtle hints of patchouli, sandalwood and vanilla). Personally, we’d rather have the wine.
“These rustic signs are hand-painted and with lyrics chosen by Lee himself,” according to his website. “Made from rugged reclaimed 100-year-old Tennessee barn wood, we feel they capture the essence of Lee’s creativity, hard work and passion for music. Each block has its own unique characteristics, and [is] autographed and authenticated with a Lee Brice guitar pick on the back.” The blocks come in seven varieties featuring such lyrics as “Never let your prayin’ knees get lazy” from “Love Like Crazy.” Proceeds are said to be earmarked for an unspecified charity.
This red-and-black plaid unisex fleece-lined onesie has a zip-up front, front-flap pockets and … wait for it … a button-closure butt flap in the back.
“Show the world that your baby is Luke’s No. 1 fan with this gender-neutral onesie, available in four sizes,” says his website. No word on whether it has a butt flap.
Pucker up for the least expensive item on our list, with its name taken from Bryan’s 2012 hit single.
The most expensive item on our list, these Epiphone DR-100 acoustic guitars come in two models and feature an autographed FGL photo on the body of the guitar. The instruments have a spruce top and mahogany body and neck, a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays and chrome hardware. A case is not included.
A “super soft, plush” gray robe made of polyester fleece with a belt and two patch pockets at the hips and the words “Carrie Underwood Storyteller,” the title of her latest album, embroidered on the left side of the chest. One size fits most.
The set includes a red plaid Carrie Underwood Storyteller-branded neoprene wine sleeve and two BPA-free acrylic wine tumblers with maroon lids and double-walled insulation that “keeps your wine cooler longer and keeps bugs and dirt out.” Now that’s country!
Includes two small wine glasses and one small carafe, all made of clear glass, with “Blake Shelton Sangria” printed in maroon ink, after the title of his recent hit. The carafe holds half a liter, or the equivalent of about one serving for Shelton.
This custom Nike Precision Power Distance golf ball with the Darius Rucker logo “has a soft compression core and a softened ionomer cover for exceptional distance and feel, enhanced short-game control and consistent ball flight,” according to the singer’s site. We have no idea what that means.
This 10-inch mini chainsaw-shaped necklace was inspired by the band’s 2014 hit “Chainsaw.”
Comes in blue with the word “melt” on the front, the title of a 2002 album from the band. Available in size small only.
These sets come in two varieties. One has eight tattoo styles, while the other just says “Girl Crush” over a pair of woman’s lips.
Each lyric bead, meant to be added as charms to bracelets and necklaces, is 11 millimeters in diameter, cast in tarnish-resistant sterling silver and handmade in the United States.
A cute accessory from an adorable newcomer. Dibs on these.
