Arrests don't happen often in country music, and typically when they do, alcohol is involved. While a few of these famous country music mug shots are for more serious crimes, none resulted in long sentences behind bars.

For the most part, country artists are a more wholesome lot than pop and rock stars, even if legends like Hank Williams, Jr., Willie Nelson and George Jones have found themselves in the clink. The mug shots collected here provide a look at our favorite stars without their makeup, dark glasses or even cowboy hats. A few of the mugs are funny, but a few are sad, and at least one country singer's mug shot is pretty frightening.

Wynonna Judd, Randy Travis and Johnny Cash are a few more featured in this list of country celebrity mug shots. There are a few more contemporary pictures, as well. Gretchen Wilson is the latest to be arrested for an altercation at an airport in August 2018. Before that, Michael Ray got popped for an incident outside of a McDonald's.
