Best Country Singers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Sturgill Simpson

Yes! Sturgill sings real country music that is quality. I'm thankful for him. So tired of Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, and Sam Hunt.

108 Bailey Bryan

After hearing all these country singers, Bailey Bryan in my mind is the best one. I like the way her country sounds. She is Defiantly "My Kinda Country".

109 Lucinda Williams

The best female alternative country singer ever.

110 Kris Kristofferson

Unarguably one of the greatest country music writers on the planet, and even though he's never been known for his singing voice, Kris's special talent to make the listener feel that he is singing directly to him or her, more than compensates for the lack of a great voice.

Good entertainer, but oh gosh what a songwriter! Me and Bobby McGee, For the Good Times, Help Me Make it Through the Night, Loving Her Was Easier, Sunday Morning Coming Down, and on and on and on...

For The Good Times very well might be the saddest most poignant song ever written. " Hear the whisper of the raindrops falling soft against the window, and make believe you love me one more time. For the good times. If u ever get a chance to hear Elvis version of this song, you won't regret it.

111 Taylor Swift Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift (Taylor Swift) is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She is best known for writing break up songs and for having more than 5 Grammys. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching more.

The only reason she is down here is because she doesn't do country anymore. She makes pop music which is also extremely awesome and worth listening to. But lets be honest, her country music was also amazing. Anyone could relate to them and they had a beautiful meaning behind them. Taylor Swift it too underrated. Even though she changed from country to pop, she still has the same beautiful personality inside, maybe she changed for the better?

Let's be honest, the reason she's down here is because she ain't country, leave the top spots for real country singers, not dissing her, it's just that her songs are pop and not country just because there is guitar in the background - u_maddox_bro

Even thought Taylor is in a country star anymore neither is Kelly Clarkson and she still beat her which makes no sense Taylor Swift should be number one her songs are still amazing that were country and there's no reason why she should be at the very bottom of the list when she is one of the best country

112 Luke Bryan Luke Bryan Thomas Luther Bryan, known professionally as Luke Bryan, is an American country music singer and songwriter.

Luke Bryan is my favorite country singer. I never liked country until I listened to Luke Bryan. Part of the reason I like him is because he sings about the realities of a country boy. As a hunter and fisherman that aspect is a huge deal. No doubt this guy should be top 25. When was the last song that Chesney sang a song with fishin and huntin? Luke Bryan top 25 for sure!

Help develop country and was good friends with Jones at his times

Luke Bryan is my idol I listen to all his songs. I literally have all of his songs on my laptop, phone, iPod. He's my favorite country singer of all time.

The best country singer of all time love his songs should be in the top 10 for sure never liked country tell I herd one of hs songs

113 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...

115 Blake Shelton Blake Shelton Blake Tollison Shelton is an American country singer and television personality. In 2001, he made his debut with the single "Austin".

I think that he is on the top list because he sings from the heart and always will. Other artists are above him because he isn't the best of all time but he is the one of the best. There always will be someone that is better then you even if you don't think that.

Not all of his music stays true blue to the roots of country. But in my honest opinion all his music catches my ear and I can't stop listening. Top 10 at least for me. Came here to forget baby!

BLAKE can sing anything...there is no one in country music to come close to BLAKE...his voice it's SUPERB...he is the best at singing live

I know he is not the number one, but he is absolutely talented and sings a sort of country styles (classical, modern, raspy, soft).

116 Keith Urban Keith Urban Keith Lionel Urban is a New Zealand born Australian 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

118 John Anderson

John needs to play country politics and he will go up the list. His claim to fame is his voice, not his extra curricular activities.

Has never had any credit his voice defines country

119 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

120 Merle Travis

Who could Merl's writing talent. The songs he wrote have become "classics". Nine Pound Hammer, Dark as a Dungeon, and the guitar players he inspired are many. Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed, just to name a few.
