8. Faith Hill

Faith Hill is talented and gorgeous, and she definitely seems like she could be an actress as easily as a singer, but she too only gave it a very small try. In 1997, Faith Hill made her first on-screen appearance in the series Touched by an Angel. In 2004 she had her biggest role in the film the Stepford Wives as one of the “perfect” wives but it was 11 years before she once again acted, this time in the indie film Dixieland. Although she certainly showed promise, Faith Hill didn’t give fans enough to tell if she really could act.

7. Willie Nelson

With or without acting, Willie Nelson will always be an icon, especially in the country music world. He made his first on-screen appearance in 1978’s The Rockford Files before quickly moving to the big screen with 1979’s Electric Horseman. Over the years Nelson has now appeared in around 50 different roles across film and television in all kinds of genres, and while fans love to see him, it is only because he is Willie Nelson. His iconic nature really means that not a lot is asked for him in his many roles, so while he has had a lot of success in acting, it doesn’t necessarily come down to skill.
