Best Country Singers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Buck Owens

Very influential artist, not only to country but also to rock musicians. John Fogerty mentions him during Creedence Clearwater's "Looking Out My Back Door". Should be much higher.

He is an Old Country music Treasure

83 Buck owns maybe Hee Haw hurt his carear he played with all the Greats even Dean Martin he may just be a country boy but he was the ring leader when Glen Campbell was with the Beach Boys? First country Artist to Play Carnigie Hall?

82 Clint Black
83 Florida Georgia Line
84 Guy Clark

Old No. 1 is number nine on my list, and that's not bad at all.

85 Rascal Flatts

Gary LeVox is one of the most unique and refreshing voices to hit country music in generations. They/He are much more deserving of a much higher ranking.

86 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!

Right. Omitting her was almost as bad as omitting Loretta. People sure have short memories.

Beautiful melodic voice with a string of hits to prove she belongs in the top20.

She is great and should have been mentioned in the beginning of this list.

She is an amazing artist. I think she should me number 8.

88 Ralph Stanley

By far the best Country music singer ever, why do I have to add him on

One of the most unique voices I've ever heard, very good.

89 Hank Snow

The man had a voice and was truly country. An entertainers entertainer.

Hank Snow needs to be higher on the list.

One of the greatest

90 Billy Currington

I love this guy, love done gone, people are crazy, why why why! All so good=D

This singer is okay mmy faviort country singer is jason aldean

91 Jerry Reed

Both my dad and I just love his songs

92 Neil Young Neil Young Neil Percival Young is a Canadian singer-songwriter and musician, producer, director and screenwriter.

Neil is awesome. While certainly not pure country, there is an undeniable country influence in most of his songs.

I don't like country, but I love Neil Young

94 Gary Allan

A unique voice filled with raw emotion.

Great voice...great songs!

Sings from the heart

95 Dustin Lynch

Dustin Lynch has a George Straight meets Conway Twitty flair about him and yet he is cool in his own right!

96 Reba McEntire Reba McEntire Reba Nell McEntire is an American country music singer, songwriter, record producer, actress and television producer.

Mmm. Can we get someone who knows something about country music to re-do this list. To see her in concert in her hey - day was something to behold. She changed clothes about 20 times and every song was like a mini movie of each song she sang.

#38? Come on! We're talking about REBA! She needs to be top 10, like her or not, you can't discount her contribution to country music over the last 40 years!

Come on I think she should be a lot higher she has some real good songs and a very nice peron as well

The best role model for women in the country music world and more...

97 Barbara Mandrell

She was a huge star in her time. She should be in top 20.

She has such a beautiful voice ~ just listen to her clear and one of a kind voice!

98 Tanya Tucker Tanya Tucker Tanya Denise Tucker is an American female country music artist who had her first hit, "Delta Dawn", in 1972 at the age of 13. Over the succeeding decades, Tucker became one of the few child performers to mature into adulthood without losing her audience, and during the course of her career, she notched more.

You've got to be kidding! What are artists like Tanya and Loretta Lynn doing this far down?

Tanya Tucker should be in the top ten. Haven't you heard her songs?

99 Chris LeDoux

The most real cowboy to ever live, he is real country, not like modern country singers that don't include steel or fiddle, rodeos, or cowboy hats in there music. Country used to have a warm cosy feel about it, now its very pop like. And Wyoming and Texas are better than Tennessee, js. Also why is Kenny Chesney so low down?
