List of the top female country singers who sang and wrote the majority of their hit songs.

The Top Ten

1 Nanci Griffith

Nancy is a wonderful singer songwriter. Her songs touch your heart; the tunes stay in your mind and make you smile or cry...whichever her intent. She will always be number one in my songbook!

For me Nanci is and always will be number one.

I have loved Nanci's Words & Music for a long, long time. She will always be number one in my book..

Love Nanci's music. Love it when performed by others as well. 😊

6 Jennifer Jennings

Mike O'Cull, staff writer for the Illinois Entertainer, and writes:
"The Jennifer Jennings Band is as good or better than anything coming out of Nashville."

Terrence Flamm of The Illinois Entertainer reviews :
"The spirited country rock on The Jennifer Jennings Band ’s debut, All The Pieces, gets a boost from the lead singer’s ability to create funny lyrics that ring true. “Not That Way” depicts an addiction to one-night stands, and on “Family Reunion,” a gal dumps her beau for his unruly brother. The irresistible love song “I’ve Got A Feeling” is a genuine contender to top the country charts." - Garjen
