Classic clips: Country stars on Sesame Street

Sesame Street uploaded this video of Randy Travis to their YouTube account today from an appearance he had on the show back in 1991. 

Too sweet. 

It got me to thinking, though, about who all in the country world has shown up on the classic children's show over their more than 40 years on the air.

If you're curious too, check out all the videos I was able to dig up of country stars either making an appearance or having a puppet made in their likeness after the jump … 

Another Randy Travis song: 

Johnny Cash seems to have made several appeances. Here he is with Oscar the Grouch. You can see more videos of him on the show here, here, here, and here. There's also a Ronnie Trash puppet appearance here.

Loretta Lynn. She also appeared several times on Sesame Street and also on The Muppet Show:

Here's Dolly Parton's puppet, Ms. Polly Darton. Miss Piggy also appeared with Dolly on Dolly's show. Check out that video here.

 

Here's Darius in his Hootie days:

 

Here's Blake Shelton and the other The Voice judges as puppets:

 
Then there's Ms. Carrie Underworm:

Sugarland: 
 
Dixie Chicks:
 
Cyrstal Gale:
 
Martina McBride: 
 
Tim and Faith:
 
Sheryl Crow:
 
Brad Paisley and wife Kimberly on Sesame Street's primetime special: 
 
This isn't by any means a complete list. Wikipedia has a great list of stars, country and other, who have appeared on the show. Check it out here.
