2 The Marshall Tucker Band
3 Pure Prairie League
4 Alabama Alabama Alabama is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. It is bordered by Tennessee to the north, Georgia to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Mississippi to the west.
5 Creedence Clearwater Revival Creedence Clearwater Revival Creedence Clearwater Revival, often shortened to Creedence and abbreviated as CCR, was an American rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Much more of a swamp-rock style (even though they were West Coast.) Did a good job sounding like they were from Louisiana (or Texarkan).

6 Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
7 Lynyrd Skynyrd Lynyrd Skynyrd Lynyrd Skynyrd is an American rock band best known for popularizing the Southern rock genre during the 1970s They are known for songs like "Free Bird", "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Tuesdays Gone" .

Not to split hairs, but they're a southern rock band. There is a difference.

8 Poco
9 The Allman Brothers Band The Allman Brothers Band The Allman Brothers Band was an American rock band formed in Jacksonville, Florida in 1969 by brothers Duane Allman and Gregg Allman, as well as Dickey Betts, Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks, and Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson.

Again, a southern rock band.

The Contenders

11 The Grateful Dead The Grateful Dead The Grateful Dead was an American rock band formed in 1965 in Palo Alto, California. Ranging from quintet to septet, the band is known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of country, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, rock, improvisational jazz, psychedelia, space rock, for live performances more.
12 Buffalo Springfield Buffalo Springfield Buffalo Springfield was an American-Canadian rock band, formed in Los Angeles in 1966. Their original lineup included Stephen Stills, Dewey Martin, Bruce Palmer, Richie Furay, and Neil Young.

The Banjo solo in the outro of "Bluebird" is arguably the first true incarnation of the form, although "Rockabilly" existed from the very beginning, and proves the two were never very far apart.

13 Flying Burrito Brothers
14 The Desert Rose Band
15 Rascal Flatts
16 The Byrds The Byrds The Byrds were an American rock band, formed in Los Angeles, California in 1964. The band underwent multiple line-up changes throughout its existence, with frontman Roger McGuinn remaining the sole consistent member, until the group disbanded in 1973. Although they only managed to attain the huge commercial more.

Not "country" at all. Electric folk.

The original lineup 1964-1967 was among the greatest of folk rock artists.
The changing lineup from 1968 forward, and especially the short lived addition of Gram Parsons resulted in the Byrds being credited with inventing "country rock", and their 1968 album "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" is usually considered the first full country rock album.
