11 Best Country Tour Pranks
Tour life is a part of being a musician and sometimes it’s hard when they have to be on the road for many months at a time, but it also seems like it could be a lot of fun, especially when they have a close relationship with their fellow touring artists. Long tours with nothing much to entertain themselves sets the stage for some major pranks to go down and it seems like anything is game when its the last show of a tour! Here’s a look at 11 of the best country tour pranks!
11. Dierks Jeep Gets Gift Wrapped
Kip Moore found the perfect way to kick off his tour with Dierks Bentley, while also getting revenge on him for a previous prank. The main target was Dierks’ beloved Chevy truck named “Big White.” With a little help from Dierks wife, Moore found Dierks truck parked outside a Nashville publishing company where he was inside at a writing appointment. Moore arranged for his team to fill the entire cab with Styrofoam peanuts, draw all kids of graffiti on the front, sides and back of the truck and then to top it all off — they filled the bed of the truck with hay and put a billy goat inside! It’s safe to say Dierks was totally surprised when he came out and quickly figured out who the culprit was when he saw the sign “I’m To Blame.”
10. Kellie Pickler Chicken Pickin’
Brad Paisley is often credited as the prank master, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t sometimes on the receiving end of it! In 2007 he met his match when fellow country singer Kellie Pickler decided to start bringing a bunch of chickens on stage during one of his acoustic performances in North Carolina. He was singing “Dixieland Delight” when Pickler came out dressed in overalls, a plaid shirt, some fake hillbilly teeth and pigtails and holding a live chicken! She casually placed them one by one around him as he sang the song. Paisley managed to make it to the end of the song, but he definitely had a hard time finishing by the end!
