It seems that the Country music industry and alcohol almost go hand in hand. With so many songs about drinking, partying and having an all-around good time, it really isn’t a big surprise.
But, as Lady A’s Charles Kelley begins his journey towards sobriety, the topic has been top of mind.
“I want to thank everyone who has shown me so much support and encouragement so far on my journey of sobriety,” Kelly said in a recent Instagram post. “Y’alls kind words have meant the world to me and really lifted me up over the past few weeks. I can’t wait to get back on the road with Lady A next year.”
That got us thinking about which other country stars don’t drink. There aren’t necessarily a lot of examples of people who are open about it in the industry, but there definitely are a few.
One notable example is Keith Urban, who has been very open about his struggles with addiction to drugs and alcohol many times in the past.
“I’ve nothing against drugs or alcohol. Everyone does what they want to do to have a great time,” Urban said in an article by The Times U.K. “I just realized I’m allergic to it. Someone said, ‘You have an allergy? What happens when you drink?’ And I said, ‘I break out in cuffs.'”
Here is a list of 11 other country artists that go against the grain and choose not to drink alcohol.
