Happy holiday season MegaCountry readers! The annual tradition of the ugly Christmas sweaters has become an American pastime. We have parties, contests and even entire stores all dedicated to this single item of clothing. Every year, people from all across this country break out their most ridiculous, fun and festive garb to don in celebration of the season. Some of our favorite country stars partake in the custom year after year, and we’ve rounded up some of our favorite ugly Christmas sweater moments below. We’ve also included as where to snag one for yourself, whatever your style or preference.

1) Tim McGraw & Faith Hill

On a particularly funny and festive episode of Pickler & Ben, two very special guests donned some very spirited sweaters in celebration of the holiday season. Husband and wife country superstars, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill swung by the show to play a hilarious round of Holiday Pictionary. The drama of the game was made even funnier by the ridiculous outfits they all had on, making the video a must watch. You can snag their exact sweaters online now, or find your favorite now. Although we’ll warn you, there’s a ton of options, so be ready to browse.

2) Luke Bryan

In true Luke Bryan fashion, the Georgia native and country star released his version of an ugly Christmas sweater, featuring a very fitting image of the artist arm in arm with Santa Claus sharing a beer. And just when you thought it couldn’t be further in character, there’s a gold star tree topper and bottle opener easily accessible in the front.

3) Kelsea Ballerini

This ugly Christmas sweater comes with beautiful intentions. Kelsea designed and created this sweater herself, with the help of a DIY kit, to auction off with proceeds going to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Buying the kit or donating earns you a chance to win that exact sweater Kelsea has on in the photo.

4) Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani & RaeLynn

With even more to celebrate than just the holiday season in 2015, RaeLynn was lucky enough to throw her engagement party surrounded by friends and loved ones decked out in Christmas apparel and accessories. While it’s hard to get a good look at their outfits in these photos, the star-studded party had us dreaming of our favorite movie lines and jokes on a sweater to don ourselves. Lucky for us and you, those exact sweaters are available at Party City. The sweaters pay homage to National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Elf and A Christmas Story. That’s not to mention their children’s and vest options! Check out the variety yourself.

5) Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood

It’s no secret to anyone that Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood cannot wait to break out their ugly sweaters every year. From entire ugly Christmas sweater themed episodes of Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, to their memorable 12 Days of #UglyXmasSweater Challenge, they are always looking for new and fun ways to incorporate the tradition year after year, including joining together in a two-person sweater.

6) Kacey Musgraves 

Kacey Musgraves has never been shy about her love for Christmas and its spirit. Her third album is even entirely dedicated to the holiday and full of festive cheer, as well as the typical healthy dose of humor and humility. Her ugly Christmas sweater merch, released originally in honor of the album’s debut, is exactly that. While that particular version is a few years old and hard to track down, there’s a comfortable sweatshirt with a beautiful image of the artist available online.

7) Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood is not only a country star, but she’s also married to Nashville Predators’ captain, Mike Fisher. Carrie was sure to support him a couple of winters ago as his team battled it out in their hometown. Her incredible look had us brainstorming how all our favorite teams would look in ugly sweater lights. There are designs galore available on Fanatics, so be sure to represent your team at the office or family Christmas party.

8) Reba McEntire 

It’s hard to think of Christmas without Reba McEntire running through your mind. The second year host of the CMA Country Christmas special has released three Christmas albums of her own, and performed a number of shows wearing red and green as an homage to her favorite holiday. In honor of her gorgeous dresses, and ability to rock a button down sweater, we thought of Target’s new ugly sweater dresses that are available this season. It’s an adorable, fresh and easy twist on the classic look.

9) Jason & Brittany Aldean

If there was ever a couple you could count on to have hilarious ugly Christmas sweaters, it would be Jason and Brittany Aldean. While the couple is always dressed up, this rap and rock look was especially awesome. You and your significant other have the in opportunity to replicate it with ease, down to the mirror selfie. All you need is a couple of funny sweaters. From vintage to party attire, you’ll find exactly what you need for your event below.

10) Kelly Clarkson

Back in 2013, the one-time American Idol winner received a bright red and heavily decorated sweater by none other than Ellen Degeneres. While a guest on her show earlier in the month, Ellen surprised the expectant mother with matching ugly sweaters. What’s especially fun about this sweater is the level of customizability. With a solid color sweater, the sky’s the limit as far as decorating. Ellen and her team obviously choose popcorn, tinsel, some gift wrapping bows and candy canes, but there’s really no limit to the number of combinations possible.
