Amazing voice, great presentation, excellent rapport with the audience, magnificent interpretation of standard and innovative songs.

Just an excellent voice and delivery desires top ten honors

I loved her voice and her songs. Most of them certainly described my way of life

Great voice and lyricist

42 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 have Tanya Tucker below Bonnie Raitt and Kelly Clarkson, who aren't even country singers? How insulting.

Some of the best songs ever!

There aren't 37 singers in Country Music that can carry a tune, much less available for listing ahead of Tanya.

Delta Dawn or Texas (When I Die) Oh...too many good ones. It's awful being so indecisive! - Britgirl

First Country Female to win a Grammy and she even wrote the song.

45 Jessie James

She's married to eric decker of course she is one of the best there is

46 Mary Chapin Carpenter

Mary consistently produces work of the highest quality, taking Country Music to new heights. Between Here and Gone sets a new benchmark for all aspiring songwriters.

"Stones in the Road" is one of the greatest songs of the last few decades. Mary is one of the greats.

She is a terrific singer and wonderful entertainer.

I feel lucky today

Besides Brenda Lee she is the greatest. My name is Brenda Lee. My father named me when he was in Germany in 1961.

A good voice and real country, and very nice looking

Terri Clark I'd like you to be on my Facebook and Naaman Morehouse

48 Brenda Lee Brenda Lee Brenda Mae Tarpley, known as Brenda Lee, is an American performer and the top-charting solo female vocalist of the 1960s.

Only Woman in the Rock a BIlly hall of fame, Rock Hall of fame, and Country Music call of fame... Sold millions of albums all over the world. one of the best representatives of country music that you can find. Terrific attitude and wonderful personality. What a talent!

Don't tell me that you actually think there are 81 singers in Country Music better than Brenda Lee. Just admit your list is a travesty.

One of the best female voices of all time. Her Christmas recording is still very popular.

Beautiful, strong voice from such a small lady. Top 10

Vocally she's better than anyone on the list but she has a long way to go. One day should could be in the top 5 though!

50 Ashley Monroe

Can you say young Dolly? She rivals Alison in God given ability. Sadly this beautiful traditional voice will never get the props it deserves.

51 Sheryl Crow Sheryl Crow Sheryl Suzanne Crow is an American singer-songwriter and actress. Her music incorporates elements of pop, rock, folk, country and blues.
52 K.T. Oslin

Best of them all. Exceptional sultry voice and so full of emotion.

Breakthrough vocals and most creative songs that truly tell a story.

53 Audra McLaughlin

Carrie Underwood? Kelly Clarkson? Audra McLaughlin? Yes, you will hear those three names in the same sentence before too long. Audra's voice is right up there with Carrie and Kelly. Amazing, powerful vocals. Was lucky enough to meet her in person and what a down to earth, genuine person who really cared about her fans.

Audra is such a tremendously awesome and amazing singer, songwriter, and genuine person! Looking forward to seeing her on top of this list in the near future! Just love her!

This girl is one of the up and coming new women of country music. Check her out. Powerhouse vocals.

Love Audra. So talented.

54 Kelly Clarkson Kelly Clarkson

Are you kidding me or something? Kelly clarkson has the best voices of all the time and she has 40 something place? Did anyone forget that she is the winner of American idol? Are you serious? I think she needs to be in first.

She's not a country singer. You might as well put her on the best mountain bike brand or best cell phone service list. She doesn't fit the category.

We seem to be getting a lot of reality show alums in here. I know Kelly did a duet with Jason Aldean, but most of her work isn't country...

I thought Kelly only sang pop!

56 Lucinda Williams

#88?!? Lucinda Williams is a really great song writer. She has never gotten the attention she deserves. She has a fantastic and unique voice along with great instrumental parts. Just listen to anything by her.

She's a great songwriter.

This list is joke... Shania Twain and Garth Brooks are the 2 worst things to ever happen to country music...

Excellent artist with soul!

60 Miley Cyrus Miley Cyrus Miley Ray Cyrus is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Miley Cyrus's voice is contralto. She became a teen idol starring as the character Miley Stewart in the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana in 2006. Her father Billy Ray Cyrus also starred in the show.

Loved this talent when she first left Disney, of course she was great while working with Disney, but I don't understand the theatrics she pulls now and how it has anything to do with her God given talented voice. I just hope she doesn't lose herself in the over-exagerated hype of pushing the envelope to be noticed. She is a great actress, very pretty and a killer voice to top it off. Come back Miley, don't get lost You have an endless amount of fans who really enjoy your songs. Stay on course and enjoy life.

What happened to you you were my favorite on Disney

She has really good music
