42 John Prine

Insightful songwriter... him in Rodney Crowell have anchored music with durable lyrics that speak the truth about our humanity.


43 Shooter Jennings
44 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.

He should be higher than this. " Country Roads Take Me Home" is one of the best loved songs of all time. When it was first released everyone loved it. Even as a young child I understood how poignant the song is.

Simply THE GREATEST COUNTRY SINGER EVER. Many of his songs are not just beautiful melodies, but sublime poems as well. I've no doubt that he even deserves to be remembered as one of the best American poets of all times.

Country T.V. legend of the 70's with great songwriting skills. Leaving on a jet plane. Country Roads, thank god I'm a country boy. Rocky Mountain High!

47 Charley Pride

I didn't like country music until I heard Luke Bryan. He inspired me in all aspects of my life. Along with being extremely cute, he is a wonderful singer and should definitely be in the top 10 at least.

Charley Pride by far is one of the purest form of country talent ever! This Man should be in the top #1

A man of class who could sing country as well as it could be done... A great one who deserves better than 36th

This is bs. Charley pride is easily in the top ten.

48 Shania Twain Shania Twain

One of the most skilled female Country singers in the History of Country music. Her songs hit charts that other Country singers wish they did.

Too far down the list. I know she was HUGE in the music industry but she could have been even bigger if she had wanted to be. In my opinion she was bigger than any one genre of music.

Shania Twain has sold over 75 million albums worldwide, making her the best selling female artist in the history of country music. She belongs in the top five.

Why is she so underrated?! - mood333

Definitely one of the greatest live country singers vocally

The fact that this guy is not even on the list yet is a disgrace

Randy Owen has arguably among the top ten of country music singers of all time

53 Keith Urban Keith Urban Keith Lionel Urban is a New Zealand born country musician. In 1991, he released a self-titled debut album and charted four singles in Australia before moving to the United States the following year.

He is so energetic and obviously loves what he does. He's so humble and loves his fans and is a great musician, songwriter, and entertainer

I admire Keith as he has really hung in with country music for many years and seems to love what he does.

I just like his style

An incredible Artist

54 Ronnie Dunn

My favorite singer in any genre, nobody has the ability to make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up like Ronnie Dunn! Shocked to find him this far up...

When he sings " Believe" it's like an experience I can't describe. He needs to be in top 5 or higher.

Best male voice ever in any genre

One of the best and most recognisable voices in country music

55 Faith Hill

While her career was in full swing, she was considered one of the best. While we don't know fully why she quit during the success of her singing career, she still should not be ripped off. Her voice is one to be remembered.

56 Eric Church

If you don't thinks he's top 25 than take a look at all of his songs you will be surprise how many are hits!

He is the best, lyrical, and has so many hits, and you can relate to every single one of his songs. A haters gonna hate, please respect him, he's a Country Music Jesus! One day you'll be kicking yourself for not likein him, one day!

One of the few left that hasn't converted to "bro-country". As he says, still have a lotta boot left to fill!

57 Kasey Chambers

I don't care if she's from Australia, she's still one of the best country singers I've ever heard.

Never heard of you.

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

Beer for my horses was awesome if you don't like it, not my problem

Natural, style of his own, good voice range with emotion

Surely the best of the modern day country and western singers.

Your all nuts, this guy is the best.
