Best Country Singers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 4

61 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*

62 Loretta Lynn Loretta Lynn

Loretta is no doubt right there with Patsy Cline and no matter in the order you put them, they are one and two. If your looking at country, it is Loretta. If your looking at rock, it is most of the rest, especially from roughly 2000 to now.

I'm sure she could care less, but to have Loretta Lynn this far down is still an insult, but at least she's on the list. How she can not be in the top twenty on a list of all-time country singers is beyond my comprehension.

Big, huge, rags to riches, award winning pioneer of the music industry. Loretta's life ( along with Dolly) gives us all the incentive we need to reach for the stars regardless of our lot in life as youngsters.

You guys seriously put her at no. 83 and then put some ding dong head Blake Shelton at 24? Have you guys lost your minds? I think I'll answer that myself: Yes!

63 Vince Gill

Going strong after 40 years singing, playing & writing. Still has the best voice of all of them!

I could listen to him every day. Great voice. The song go rest high on that mountian has /is being played or sung at many male funerals. Vince, how about some more new country songs. Don't retire from singing. Thanks again for the wonderful music.

He has the voice of an angel. His songs discribe things with such detail, power, and flavor. His instirmentation is so understated, yet so memorable with his piano driven, yet very diverse style. No one can beat a equal a Vince Gill song, except Reba, not sure who's better.

64 Sam Hunt

I agree that he is the current country singer to watch. His fan base is very broad as his popularity goes far beyond country music fans alone.

One day he will be at the top, u Mark my word, I bet every penny I own! One Day!

I love his song Break Up In a Small Town

What is he doing down here? he must be so high!

Her voice is crystal clear and pitch perfect.

66 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

67 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.

68 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.

70 Kenny Rogers Kenny Rogers

This list has no credibility if anyone thinks Kenny doesn't belong in the top ten. His song " Lucille" (which he released before the Gambler) brought millions of fans to country music. Thank goodness I was one of them. Kenny has crossed over many times into other genres which isn't that easy to do.

He's the only man who puts his mind and soul in the country music industry so does he deserve to on top period!

Kenny Rogers is the most talented country singer I have ever heard.

Kenney Rogers introduced me to country music since I was a teenager in my home countrry music. Back then I was just started learning English and found his songs and music fascinating and inspriring. I love country music because of Rogers. He should be in the top ten.

76 Martina McBride Martina McBride

Martina McBride has a lovely voice that inspires all. She was the one who inspired Carrie Underwood to sing and still has songs that are famous today. (Independence Day, etc. ) Her powerhouse voice is obvious, and I think that we should all give her some credit.

Are you kidding me? McBride is more talented than any of the people. Her vocal ability is unlike anyone in this genre. She has more soul, meaning, conviction, power, emotion, control and technique than anyone on this list.

Ridicules to put her as # 65. Independence Day alone puts her in the top 20. She's been around the business for many years and can still belt it out.

She should be in the top 20 overall and top five for females.

77 Josh Turner

If you pay attention to the voice of the singer and not how many awards and number ones they got, it easy to say that josh turner has THE best voice ever

Love his voice, he's not fake and he's from South-Carolina. I struggle to find another country singer like him recently

He has such an amazing, deep unique voice and he is a true country singer.

78 Tracy Lawrence

Sang and wrote some of the best music ever recorded. Whoever compiled this list needs to listen to country music recorded before 2015.

One of the few newer country singers worth listening to

The fact that this man is not even on the list shows the ignorance of this list. Tracy was recording country during the hay days of Garth, Chesnutt, Clint Black, Joe Diffe, Chesney, Mcgraw. With the exception of Garth he had more hits and more sales. He is one of the most unique and best live voices of country I have ever heard. Nothing like Tracy unplugged

This man belongs in the top twenty.

79 Zac Brown

Extremely under rated to me. His songs are all written so well and the lyrics are relatable. I also personally believe that he has the best voice in country modern day. That is a personal opinion, but as for vocals I believe he is the best.

Zac Brown is the best of modern day country no one else writes lyrics like him

Zac brown band should be at the top not at #81
