She became a professional country singer in the 1950s, and became one of the most important artists in American music history. Patsy died on March 5, 1963, in a plane crash in Camden, Tennessee.

The best country artist of all time. Proof: "Crazy" and "Three Cigarettes In An Ashtray."

23 Martina McBride Martina McBride
24 Carrie Underwood Carrie Underwood

As Brad Paisley has so aptly pointed out Carrie is the best voice in country music if not all of music and the man has heard live some of the best. This is high praise indeed and she receives this kind of praise again and again from some of the best: Randy Travis, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Vince Gill etc. Carrie Underwood cannot only hit all of the right notes but with ease and she has a beautiful tone to her voice. Actually not one tone. I am constantly hearing different sides to Carrie's vocals from the power she employs in How Great Thou Art (Her live performance with Vince Gill is a must see/hear and should make even the most ardent sceptic a believer) to the pure head voice in Just A Dream to a soft and warm vocal in Mama's Song and Temporary Home.

Carrie Underwood has had every country song she has released go to number except for one song that went to number 2. Her duet with Brad Paisley went to number 1 as well. She has fourteen number one songs under her belt and has only released three albums so far. Her voice is unparalleled and her devotion to country music is one of her highest priorities. As a member of the Grand Old Opry she performs there often despite a very busy schedule. She is a great representative of country music not only with her music but with the example she sets in how she lives her life both spiritually and philanthropically. She is what country music is all about.

Carrie is a good sing its just that she does not belong ing country music she belongs in like pop because he songs are way to fast and up beat you need to go to pop music and leave country just saying but she is a really good singer but she does not belong in country music and who ever told her she belongs in country she does not. We want country like George jones and George strait and Kenny come on y'all be real

27 Toby Keith Toby Keith Toby Keith Covel, known professionally as Toby Keith, is an American country music singer, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur and actor.

I love toby keith he has an amazing voice and is a great guy. He loves his country and you can tell by his singing he loves good country music.

Fantastic singer, he is a great patriot and has a great voice for making the best country music.

28 Jason Aldean

He is amazing and deserves a lot more credit than he gets. He's the best country singer ever.

He is the best country singer ever!

He has small arms and a huge head. But still thinks he is a tough guy. Wear longs leaves and just sing, no need to try to b tough!

29 Tim McGraw Tim McGraw Samuel Timothy "Tim" McGraw is an American singer, songwriter and actor. He has been married to singer Faith Hill since 1996, and is the son of the late baseball player Tug McGraw. McGraw has released fourteen studio albums.

What's wrong with you guys lol. I agree with Garth brooks, Johnny cash, George straight and Carrie Underwood but everyone else I think I can find people to replace them. Tim McGraw is just the best example there are loads of other guys I can probably choose from. you can put Toby Keith in there or maybe Montgomery Gentry, in my opinion this list is not completely accurate.

Lyrically speaking Tim McGraw and Rascal Flatts are probably my favorite two Country artists.
(Tim McGraw)
Live Like You Were Dying
Highway Don't Care
Don't Take The Girl
Something Like That

(Rascal Flatts)
My Wish
What Hurts The Most

He's had so many hits that I'm surprised he's not in the top ten. He'd at least be number six in my opinion! By far my favorite country musician.

30 Chris LeDoux

I know that the people voting have no idea what country is. Johnny cash is good, he deserves that spot. But Carrie Underwood over Chris? Now that just ain't right.

If only Chris LeDoux got the air time he deserved he would be in the top 10 and not disgraced like this

Chris led out might not be the most popular but he has some of the greatest songs

31 Reba McEntire Reba McEntire Reba Nell McEntire is an American country music singer, songwriter, record producer, actress and television producer.
32 Charley Pride

How can anyone forget about Charley pride in my mind he was the best ever lived, just the quantity of records he had on number 1 on the hit chart that turned gold and platinum it is unbelievable that any one artist can achieve what he did.

33 Miranda Lambert Miranda Lambert Miranda Leigh Lambert is an American country music singer and songwriter. She is best known as a solo artist, and is a member of the Pistol Annies.

One of the best female country music artists.

Great singer all in all

She should be at #1

34 Don Williams

He is one of the best among all, if not the best.

He is just real country artist. For me and to...

The greatest

35 John Denver John Denver Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr., known professionally as John Denver, was an American singer-songwriter, actor, activist and humanitarian, whose greatest commercial success was as a solo singer, starting in the 1970s.

Really good songs, full of emotion, inspires me to lead a country life

His country roads song represents a journey of every human

36 Kenny Chesney Kenny Chesney Kenneth Arnold "Kenny" Chesney is an American country singer and songwriter. He has recorded 20 albums, 14 of which have been certified gold or higher by the RIAA.

The fact that Kenny Chesney is 38 is a crime. Yes, I recognize and appreciate the older, influential talents. But CHesney was one of the guys that modernized and grew country alongside Garth Brooks. He's got tons and tons of number one hits and albums, and he should be much higher. Puts on a fantastic show too

Kenny Chesney is the best and I loved his songs that he played and they were awesome

I feel like Kenny is Top 20 At Least, he has never stopped making people love him from the day he started.

37 Rascal Flatts
38 Lonestar
39 Montgomery Gentry

Montgomery Gentry is every bit country. From music to lifestyle, they are country in every single way. They are one of the best country singers on this page.

We're I come from is one of the best songs ever - Nascar888fan

I start crying or whatever cause they bring out the emotions especially in she Couldn't Change Me. Nothing is better! ยก!
