Halloween is an exciting time of year, and many people put a lot of effort into finding the perfect costume. But, our favorite celebrities are always a good source of inspiration for a spooky and fun look.

Here’s a look at some local celebrities and their 2017 Halloween costumes:

Kicking off the list of Nashville celebs Halloween costumes is the prince of pop Justin Timberlake. He and wife Jessica Biel dressed as “Toy Story” characters with their son, Silas. Timberlake wore a Buzz Lightyear suit, and Biel dressed as Jessie. And of course, Silas sported an adorable miniature version of Sheriff Woody.

Last year, the trio took to the streets in costumes from the movie “Trolls,” which Timberlake starred in, so it was no surprise the trio pulled off another epic group costume.

Jim Chandler and Woody Wood of popular radio show “Woody and Jim in the Morning” went with a classic “Star Wars” theme. The pair transformed into Hans Solo and a jedi.

Wood also dressed in a second costume as the popular “Saturday Night Live” character David S. Pumpkins.

Next up is country music royalty. Carrie Underwood, alongside her husband Mike Fisher, former captain of the Nashville Predators, certainly had fun this year by dressing in a couple’s costume. Underwood wore a deer onesie, similar to those from somewhere like, and Fisher dressed as a hunter who’s trapped her. According to Fisher’s Instagram, he went “trophy catchin for Halloween.”

By any means, their creative costumes were cute and paired perfectly.

Keith Urban also sported some Halloween garb. Urban and his wife, actress Nicole Kidman, also sported complementary costumes. Kidman rocked pigtails tied up with skull-printed bows and a matching skull dress. Meanwhile, Urban pulled out all the stops with all-black attire, complete with a top hat and round sunglasses.

Finalizing this list, we have Sam Palladio of CMT’s “Nashville.” The star took on a hilariously morbid look this Halloween as Connie Britton’s late character on the show, Rayna Jaymes. He wore a curly red wig and ghouled up his face, which made for one haunting tribute. Further showcasing his humorous take on the costume choice, he captioned his photo, “Rayna’s back ya’ll.”

The celebrities of Nashville did not disappoint with their costumes this year. They’re usually seen as serious professionals, so it’s nice to catch a glimpse of a more fun and playful side. And just like that, you have five stellar ideas for next year’s Halloween madness.
