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

Bob Dylan has been and always will be number one! The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Donovan, Joan Baez, The Clancy Brothers, Johnny Cash, Peter Paul and Mary Guns n Roses, I could name a thousand artists who have covered his songs or were influnced by him. Everyone can agree that he is one in a million. There will never be another Bob Dylan. He changed music permanently multiple times. His lyrics are honest, true, mind blowing, poetic, and full of imagery. He is one of the greatest poets out there. He is one of the most interesting people ever too. Concert audiences would fall silent just for him. He IS number one.

They are one word Awesome. Why is One Direction on 44? Seriously where has good music gone? Not to be rude but Bob Dylan and John Lennon should be on the top of this list.

Bob Dylan, though not a trained singer, has some of the most motivational songs of all time. His music practically led the civil rights movement in the States. He made the world better.

Dylan should be on this list. He's a complete lyrical genius. One of the best song writers of all time.

50 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

David Foster said when Jackie was 10 he had never in his 45 years in the music business ever seen anything like her. And that she would have a 50,60,70,80 year career. She will prove him right I think. She'd up to 4 years now!

Already the finest singer of her generation, and will be around for the next 50 years or so.

When Jackie lit up the music world at age 10, snooty critics predicted she'd be just another lost child star. Jackie proved them wrong. Five years later, she's working on her sixth album, she has traveled the globe and twice made the list of Billboard's '21 under 21'. David Foster said, "...there's no stopping her, and there is no one else like her." - BobG

At age 15, this legend-in-the-making has five albums and three DVDs of her PBS specials. She has also performed with David Foster, Sumi Jo, Sarah Brightman, The Tenors, Jumaane Smith, Andrea Bocelli and Jose Carreras. She was the youngest to go platinum (at age 10) and has been invited to perform at several prestigious national events. - BobG

How can't he be in the Top 10?!

He encourages others

He's smart a good insperation on people

By far the most legendary pianist in rock and roll, with a hugely successful multi-decade career, 5th best selling artist of all time. Recognized always as one of the all time greatest singers, songwriters, and has done 33 studio albums with the most hits ever for a male solo artist on billboard. multiple Grammys, multiple Brit awards with the first artists to win a Brit icon award. A tony award, Oscar, and golden globe under his belt.

He is truly a living legend. Someone of his caliber is easily in the top 10 most legendary artists of all time, and my personal favorite.
