PHOTOS: Country Artists Celebrate #OldHeadshotDay

Brett Eldredge, Reba McEntire and More Share Their Earliest Headshots

We’re not sure who to blame (or thank) for creating the social media holiday known as #OldHeadshotDay, but let’s extend our gratitude because it became one of last week’s top posting trends.

Everyone from Hollywood’s biggest and brightest stars to today’s top artists jumped on the bandwagon, posting their very first (or oldest they could dig up) headshots from their early days in entertainment long before they were household names.

Country artists got in on the fun, too, and we wanted to make sure fans had a chance to see these adorable throwback photos for themselves. Here are a few of our favorites:

  1. I couldn’t pass up #oldheadshotday!!! #toomuchfun #headshots #reba #headshot

    That smile: little Margaret Durante, Rose’s given birth name, was born to be a star.

  5. Whitney Duncan

    Does she even age? This shot of the beautiful Post Monroe singer from ten years ago looks like it could’ve been taken yesterday.

  6. Steve Moakler

    This was definitely Moakler’s MySpace profile photo. And what a good one it is!
