We’ve said it before: 2024 is shaping up to be the Year of Yeehaw. Suddenly people who’ve never watched CMT a day in their lives have found themselves searching “country concert outfit ideas” and adding cowboy boots to their shopping cart.

As with most things, we can thank Beyoncé, currently in her Cowboy Carter era, for this trend. The singer’s embrace of fringe and bolo ties has hit the mainstream—but she’s not the only sign that country music is having something of a renaissance. Lana Del Rey is venturing into the genre for her next album, Kacey Musgraves’s latest is climbing the charts, and newer artists like Lainey Wilson, Noah Kahan, and Shaboozey are gaining popularity with their fresh perspectives.

Soon these artists will all be on tour and you’ll find yourself wondering how to channel Western vibes without looking too much like an extra on the Yellowstone set. Our advice? Choose a hallmark—like rhinestones, bandanas, or double denim—and then pair it with something unexpected such as an oversized T-shirt dress or a crisp button-down.

We looked to street style for the best country concert outfit ideas, and even shopped the looks for you. Yeehaw.

Go to any country music festival—or hit the streets of Nashville—and you’ll likely see a lot of 1970s boho influences, like crochet and prairie skirts. Keep it modern with the currently on-trend gray jeans and comfortable Dr. Martens.
