Sam Hunt Is HOW old? You love listening to country music however, I bet you didn’t realize these country star ages. Some of them are MUCH younger (or much older) than maybe you thought!

Even Donnie, from The Andie Summers Show,was surprised to hear how hold Lainey Wilson because she seems like such an old soul, right?? She’s actually headlining our 40th Anniversary Show! Going to be so incredible.

This list includes some of the newer stars to come into country music and also some that have been around seemingly forever!

When Was This Country Star Ages Article Written?

I decided to write this article on February 16th, 2024 just in case someone fact checks me, that’s when I recorded everyone’s ages.

It really started when I saw that both Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton are actually the same age and are younger than I actually thought (no offense, guys). You can see their ages below. That was really shocking for me.

Let’s Take A Look At This List!

Once again, this list is as of February 16th of 2024. Some ages are subject to change as time goes on (obviously, duh Jeff). Thank you for the taking the time to enjoy this list, you can find more interesting content always at, check it out today.

  • George Strait - 71

    Was this where you thought the KING of Country Music was at? I mean, it feels about right, right? Even in his seventies, he still continues to impress us all. Touring constantly it seems, he cannot be stopped. Damn Strait on that one.

  • Dolly Parton - 78

    I honestly thought her and George Strait were a bit closer in age. But, she’s a legend, that’s for sure. From her music, her theme park, to her non-profit work and authoring of books, is there anything she cannot do? She’s the best!

  • Carrie Underwood - 40

    Oh my gosh, can’t believe she is 40! It felt like yesterday when she was American Idol. She has created such a career for herself and it all started with those country roots. Now she is all over the NFL and still on our radio stations.

    2023 CMT Music Awards – Show

  • Kane Brown - 30

    He’s was a dad of two before he was even 30! And now they have a third on the way. They revealed it on Christmas that they will be having a baby boy in 2024. Congrats to Kane and Kaitlyn.

    2023 Stagecoach Festival - Day 2

  • Billy Ray Cyrus - 62

    This is relevant because he got engaged in 2023 to Firerose who was 34 at the time. Also, some people chatting about how Miley did not thank him in her acceptance speech during the 2024 acceptance speech. She basically thanked everyone but him.

    CMA Fest 2022 - Day 4

  • Morgan Wallen - 30

    His double album, all 36 songs of it, charted in the Billboard Top 100 in 2023, which is insane. And now he has entered his 30s, but all of his success has been in his 20s, which is really incredible when you think about. Shoutout Morgan, here’s to more music in 2024.

  • Willie Nelson - 90

    He’s still a legend, still tours, still performs. This man ain’t going anywhere anytime soon that’s for sure. What’s your favorite song from Willie? I would have to say “Always On My Mind” might be my all time favorite but it is so hard to choose.

  • Keith Urban - 56

    He can take the blue out of those brown eyes, baby (if you know, you know). His wife, Nicole Kidman, is actually the same age as him. Keith has been making great music since his debut album back in 1991 (exclusively in Australia). But released worldwide in 2005. What a superstar!

  • Sam Hunt - 39

    This one caught me off guard. I could’ve sworn he wasn’t a day over 30 but he is almost at 40! He has an arena tour in 2024 with Brett Young and Lily Rose. Great to see him back on the road making music and playing show. Good for Sam!

  • Jason Aldean - 46

    I feel like just yesterday he was coming onto the scene and now he’s 46. The country superstar released his first album in 2005. But has still remained just as relevant since he came onto the scene. What’s your favorite song? I would say maybe “Any Ol’ Barstool” might be my favorite, for personal reasons.

  • Kenny Chesney - 55

    He hasn’t stopped making music since his very first album back in 1994, that’s coming up on 30 years of making amazing country music. He’s the president of No Shoes Nation. Fun fact, he was my first ever country show when he played at the New York State Fair!

  • Tim McGraw - 56

    The country star and actor doesn’t look his age at all. Could it be the workout routine? Probably has something to do with it honestly. Plus, he’s become such a TV/movie star in addition to his amazing music career. Most recently starring in the Paramount series, “1883,” a prequel to the hit show “Yellowstone.”

  • Lainey Wilson - 31

    Gotta love her. Her career is absolutely on fire right now, she cannot be stopped. She wins Entertainer of the Year at the 2023 CMAs, plus album of the year. Then wins a Grammy in 2024.  Not to mention that she’s also starring in Yellowstone. And she is headlining the 40th Anniversary Show

  • Hardy - 33

    Hardy, well the man just makes great music. He started out as a songwriter pretty much exclusively then turned out an album of his own in 2019. His collaboration on stage with Morgan Wallen and Post Malone on stage at the CMAs was just incredible. Love love love to see his success. He deserves it!
