Best Country Singers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 3

41 John Prine

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


42 Shooter Jennings
43 Hank Williams III
44 Bill Monroe

The father of bluegrass. his music influenced many country artists.

45 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.

I think that Rodgers should be somewhere in the top ten. After all, he is the Father Of Country Music.

48 Randy Owen

He has a voice that always bring your attention to the radio if you not listening closely

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

49 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

50 Faith Hill 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.

51 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.

52 Dierks Bentley

Somewhere on a beach! Funny! Bet u think I'm sitting at home, jaw.! Wonderful

Are we SIDEWAYS or something perfect NASCAR theme

53 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!

Top class I agree OK

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

Better than all of the modern crap

55 Bob Dylan Bob Dylan Bob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, artist and writer . he won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2016 .

Dylan should clearly be among the top 20. This rating is skewed.

He is international personality

Toby Keith, Kenny Chesney, and all those other idiots are above Dylan?! That's it!
*leaves Earth*

56 Chris Stapleton

He should be at least in top 10 because he sounds better than everyone else that's not in the top ten

Incredible voice, great song writer.

Traveller the best country ever

59 Roger Miller

Not to mention his part in Disney's Robin Hood and all the artists he has influenced.

"Dang Me" and "King of the Road"... enough said

Great voice. if not the first definitely on the top 10 list and a true genius in lyrics and writing and making catchy ones. you can't listen to "king of the road"or " if you want me to " and not mumble the lyrics for the next weeks. I say he's one of the best song writers of all time lets just flashback to robin hood and remember some great memories.

60 Moon Mullican

The early country music was so diverse and encompassed elements of various styles such as blues, jazz, swing, Cajun, appalachian and R&B to form what became the classic sound we know of by many greats like Hank Williams, Jim Reeves, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison and Willie Nelson. This man, singer pianist Moon Mullican founded many of the elements that would become part of the classic country era. In today's world, many of the real country greats are all but forgotten but artists like Moon Mullican and the songs they sing speak for themselves and can be enjoyed by fans of country ("The leaves mustn't fall", "A crushed red rose") and non-country ("Rocket to the moon", "Pipeliner blues") alike.
