There has long been a connection between country music, movie stars, and movies. It started in the 1960s and continued in the 1970s when Jerry Reed joined his buddy Burt Reynolds in the Smoky and The Bandit movies. Other country stars followed suit, making movie stars out of country superstars Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, and Dolly Parton.
Fast forward to 2023, and several country stars have been acting, including Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Dwight Yoakam, Kane Brown, Randy Houser, Lainey Wilson, and more.
Movie stars over the years have tried their hand at becoming country singers as well, including Kevin Costner, Kevin Bacon, Dennis Quaid, Billy Bob Thorton, Keifer Sutherland, and more.
