Tater Tot - Taylor Swift
While Taylor Swift has earned quite a few nicknames over the years (Tay Tay, T. Swizzle and Swifty, just to name a few), one of our favorites is the lesser known Tater Tot. That's because the endearingly embarrassing pet name was given to her by Brad Paisley! Well known for on-the-road pranks, Paisley came up with the nickname for Swift when she toured with him in 2007; Swift says he even changed the name on her dressing room every day!
Cadillac - Randy Houser
Back in 2010, Randy Houser told The Boot he earned the nickname Cadillac "because I like everything real smooth. I'm laid back like that. I don't like anybody messing with my good time!" Houser's second studio album, 2010's They Call Me Cadillac, is an homage to the moniker.
Woody - Shania Twain
Here's to hoping this nickname died when Shania Twain's first marriage ended! So the story goes, Twain's ex-husband, producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange, called her Woody because a hairstyle of her reminded him of Woody Woodpecker -- yes, the cartoon bird.
