Country hat acts have been around since the beginning of the genre in the 1930’s and for some acts they have been a staple in their career from the very start.
We take a rare look at some of country music’s most famous hats acts not wearing their beloved hats.
It's real hard to find a picture of Jason Aldean not donning his cowboy hat or ball cap. This is Jason singing the National Anthem during the Atlanta Braves 2009 home opener against the Washington Nationals.
Brad Paisley goes hat less as he performs the national anthem prior to Game Three of the 2018 World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox at Dodger Stadium in 2018.
This is a rare find. George Strait with no hat performs during the rehearsals for the 43rd Academy of Country Music Awards in 2008.

Another Tim McGraw hat less shot as he and faith Hill attend The Costume Institute Gala to celebrate the clothes of Jacqueline Kennedy in 2001.
He doesn't wear a cowboy hat, but it's real rare to see Cole Swindell without his GS ball cap. this is from 2013 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Eric Church hasn't been seen without his signature ball cap for a while. We had to back to 2006 to find this hat less gem.
Alan Jackson performs onstage during the 37th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards in 2002 and removes his hat to show his golden locks of hair.
We looked and looked for Kenny Chesney without his cowboy hat or a ball cap and came up empty. To show just how much he loves his hats, he wears one while meeting President George W. Bush in 2006.
