Music Legends and Their Mustangs

The Ford Mustang is an iconic American car that has captured the hearts of many car enthusiasts, including some of the biggest music stars. From rock legends to modern pop idols, the Mustang symbolizes freedom, power, and style. Let’s take a look at some famous singers who have owned (or still own) this legendary automobile.

Bob Seger

Bob Seger (1945), a rock music legend with a classic raspy voice, has a strong affinity for muscle cars from the 60s and 70s. Among his prized possessions is a 1969 Shelby GT 350. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, Seger cherishes nostalgic memories of cruising the streets of Detroit, such as Woodward Ave, in his youth, always behind the wheel of a muscle car.

Sammy Hagar

Sammy Hagar (1947)" is an American singer, songwriter, and guitarist who rose to fame in the early 1970s with the band Montrose and later as a solo artist. Hagar owned not one, but two legendary Mustangs. The first was a 1967 Shelby GT 500, a car that perfectly reflects his love for speed and rock music. The second car is the GCM-R 001 Mustang, the first of a limited edition of 100 units by Gateway Classic Mustang. Besides his music career, Hagar is also a successful entrepreneur, the founder of the Cabo Wabo tequila brand and Sammy’s Beach Bar rum.


Rapper Eminem (1972), known for his successful album “The Marshall Mathers LP” and hit “Lose Yourself,” bought a brand new 1999 Mustang Convertible with his first royalty check after becoming a global superstar. Unfortunately, in 2002, he sold the car to a 12-year-old girl, a story that only adds to his legend.

Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson (1982), winner of the first season of American Idol and a successful singer and songwriter, is a proud owner of Mustangs. In her music video “Go,” she prominently featured a red-and-white GT500. It is also known that she sold her “Galpinized” pink Mustang, which was customized at Galpin Auto Sports, because adult film star Alana Evan owned an identical car. Clarkson has also achieved success as a television personality and author, with her musical style encompassing pop, rock, and country.

The Ford Mustang is not just a car but an icon that intertwines with the history of music. From Sammy Hagar’s Shelby GT 500 to Eminem’s 1999 Convertible, Mustangs have been a part of many famous singers’ lives.
