The Top Ten

1 Country

This is far from underrated.

Improved research needed here, the #2 most popular music artist in US history is a Country act, plus 2 others in the top 10 regularly crossed over into Country.
One might even say The Beatles did at least a couple of Country songs, including "Act Naturally" [a cover though], and "Rocky Raccoon".

As a country fan living in Hong Kong, I’ll say this: The genre seems to be very popular in the USA, but country hasn’t had as much global popularity unlike many other American and western music genres like Hip-Hop/R&B and electronic music. But things like increasing globalization and music streaming, more liberalism in country music, and the Country 2 Country festivals seem to be changing that! I do hear mainstream country played in Asia sometimes!
