Top Ten Worst Country Music Artists

The Top Ten

1 Florida Georgia Line

I'm not a big fan of country, and these guys are partially to blame. Most country music I can deal with, or at least tolerate, even if it does seem to have pop elements in it. But these guys take these pop elements WAY too far, to the pint that it doesn't even sound like country anymore.

But what really tips it for me, is the song "this is how we roll", in which the main singer

And I'm not kidding here,

RAPS. THE. WHOLE. SECOND. VERSE.

It's not evens like they hire a rapper to do it, the REGULAR SINGER just starts rapping out of the blue. That was the last straw for me.

ABSOLUTE TRASH! Can't play & dang sure can't sing yet the idiotic deaf tone non music knowing public has allowed these pathetic excuses for "artists" to make millions - these guys need to move to a far away place along with the Kardashians & the world be much much better!

Oh Lord, I cannot STAND them. My dad is a country music fan so I have to listen to them in the car on the radio. They are the reason why I don't like country. All of their songs are garbage. Screw them.

I don't like country but these guys are really overrated. Johnny Cash is one of the only good country artists out there in my opinion. - RiverClanRocks

2 Carrie Underwood Carrie Marie Underwood is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She rose to fame as the winner of the fourth season of American Idol, in 2005. Her debut album, Some Hearts, was released in 2005.

I don't know why people patronize the music of such a snobby, trigger-happy racist like this POS!

She is the best country singer of all time and is an amazing human being how is she on this list!

Sings about nothing but revenge and committing violence. She's not a good human being, she's a murderous sociopath.

1. Not all her songs are about revenge and violence and 2. Who cares her songs are good

3 Lady Antebellum Lady Antebellum is an American country music group formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 2006. The group is composed of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, and Dave Haywood.

As if their music isn't bad enough, they have to be racist when finding a name for their stupid band.

I hate Your fans I'm gonna Ignore you, Adios your Music suck To yourselves Thanks a lot?

I don't care for them either

So overrated

4 Sugarland Sugarland is an American country music duo consisting of singer-songwriters Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush.

FINALLY someone who deserves to be on here

Jennifer Nettles has the absolute ugliest twangy voice ever. Period. Kristian Bush is better off on his own.

Simply hearing this women sing, haunts me in my sleep. Please quit making music, you’re trash.

5 Luke Bryan Thomas Luther Bryan, known professionally as Luke Bryan, is an American country music singer and songwriter.

He's the Justin Bieber of country music. Some of his songs are tolerable, but he mostly gets on my nerves.

Luke Bryan is the best singer I know how of all country singers

Okay so I have a lot to say about Luke... but there inst enough space in the comment box.

I don't know why people are hating on Carrie Underwood. Luke Bryan is way worse.

6 Big & Rich

While they stretch the meaning of "country" to its limits, they tried something original and some of their songs are very well written and clever. I enjoy them. But calling them country in the traditional sense is... well not quite right.

7 Miranda Lambert Miranda Leigh Lambert is an American country music singer and songwriter. She is best known as a solo artist, and is a member of the Pistol Annies.

Who made this frikin list? Miranda Lambert is awesome! Heart felt lyrics, and a voice to match! - Ratman18

She is terrible and her songs are to make people mad at Blake Shelton after their divorce.

I don’t know what’s wrong with y’all. Miranda Lambert is one of the best country singers out there. Her songs actually have meaning unlike all those fake country music artists out there.

8 Sam Hunt Sam Lowry Hunt is an American singer and songwriter. Born in Cedartown, Georgia, Hunt played football in his high school and college years and once attempted to pursue a professional sports career before signing with MCA Nashville in 2014.

Just the worst. Not good enough for the NFL and not good enough for my radio. Does he sing? Does he talk? He does both! But neither of them well. Should definitely retire but I think he'd have to have a career first. All the best in keeping him out of the public eye for the next millennia.

He literally just talks through half the damn song

Yup, I officially hate people. - Survivor101

What's wrong with people you Mark my word years from now he will be the best

9 Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. ...read more.

Not gonna lie, she was cute. She was very cute, and I think that’s what won over a lot of people, especially in my generation (I was 10 when she came about, so I had a small crush on her).

But she has definitely overstayed her welcome now. - ReturnOfScorpio

Shes Trash... but everyone else is good. Y'all don't know country if it hit you on the face.

This woman never was country in the first place!

She doesn't know how to sing. Jason Aldean shouldn't be on this list. I LOVE HIM!

10 Brad Paisley

Tone deaf morons have no business voting. Every act on this list, deserves to be on this list.

No. Brad Paisley doesn't deserve to be on this list. He had some good songs and some bad songs, but he had more good than bad.

Brad Paisely shouldn't be on this list he's and amazing guitarist and has an amazing story to back up his career

You guys are stupid - JamiePrice

The Contenders

11 Jason Aldean Jason Aldine Williams, known professionally as Jason Aldean, is an American country music singer. Since 2005, Jason Aldean has been signed to Broken Bow Records, a record label for which he has released eight albums and 24 singles.

Jason Aldean is awesome

This man killed country music.

He and his retarded songs should die in a hellhole.

You guys are stupid too.

12 The Band Perry The Band was a Canadian-American roots rock group formed in 1965 . Which originally consisting of Rick Danko (bass guitar, double bass, fiddle, vocals), Levon Helm (drums, mandolin, guitar, vocals), Garth Hudson (keyboards, saxophones, trumpet), Richard Manuel (piano, drums, vocals) and Robbie Robertson ...read more.
13 Thomas Rhett Thomas Rhett Akins, Jr., is an American country music singer and songwriter. His father is the singer Rhett Akins. Rhett has released three studio albums for Big Machine Records' Valory Music imprint: It Goes Like This, Tangled Up, and Life Changes.

This pathetic excuse for a "musician" doesn't have a tenth of the talent of his father. In fact, if it weren't for his father, this talentless man wouldn't even have a music career. And speaking of his "music", not a single song of his is good. There's the cheap knockoff of the Bee Gees ("Make Me Wanna"), the cheap knockoff of Sam Cooke's "Chain Gang" ("Crash and Burn"), and the cheap knockoff of Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" ("Die a Happy Man). And not to mention Rhett also had a hand in two of the worst country songs in the history of the genre - Jason Aldean's "1994" and Rhett's own song "Vacation". Not only are these two abominations terrible in their own right, but "Vacation" even rips off the beat from War's "Low Rider", only to add crappy bro-country lyrics that Florida Georgia Line would be ashamed to record. As for Rhett's other music, there's not a single shred of country music, instead being loaded with pop rock, R&B, disco, funk, and 80's hair metal influences. Hank ...more

Calling this guy country is an insult to the genre. Thomas Rhett looks more like a burglar or a pirate than a country singer.

I'd pay good money to see Lars Ulrich beat up this pervert-looking disgrace to music.

Dear lord, please give us back Chester Bennington and we'll give you this pedophile-looking disgrace to music.

14 Big Smo

Country should be left at country not turned into rap. come on.

15 Kane Brown

This guy is an absolute joke. Luke Bryan and Sam Hunt are also bad, but at least they're attractive. This guy looks like an ogre. And he can hardly sing. He mumbles in a mediocre baritone groan. His songs are the stereotypical bro-country dreck heard throughout mainstream country music for the last couple of years, with no originality whatsoever. Kane Brown should simply stop making music.

Can't write and only getting by because he has a look.

I like him a lot... love his voice

16 Kenny Chesney Kenneth Arnold "Kenny" Chesney is an American country singer and songwriter. He has recorded 20 albums, 14 of which have been certified gold or higher by the RIAA.

! I HATE this guy, he should be number one. My mother loves this guy. I love how he is using the money from his recent album for charity. But I can't stand his music!

One of the best

17 Kelly Clarkson Kelly Brianne Clarkson is an American singer, songwriter and children's book author. She rose to fame in 2002 after winning the inaugural season of the television series American Idol, which earned her a record deal with RCA Records. Clarkson's debut single, "A Moment Like This", topped the US Billboard ...read more.

Because Of You has got to be one of the most whiny songs this side of Rascal Flatts. Or Reba McEntire, whatever crappy country singer 'Muricans think are great.

Stop supporting this anti-Semitic jackass.

She’s not really a country artist. - 3DG20

18 Dierks Bentley

DIRKS BENTLY IS AMAZING don't WORRY DIRKS I GOT your BACK and to everyone else at least they are doing somethin with their life and if they werent good which they are then why would the have sold out concerts be on the radio where the whole world can here there songs and have millions of bucks because of their amazing songs why would they be on T.V. so while there doing something with their life and your sitting there looking for someone to bring down why don't you think it over

19 Blake Shelton Blake Tollison Shelton is an American country singer and television personality. In 2001, he made his debut with the single "Austin".

So overrated. Can we stop hearing about his so called "relationship" with Gwen Stefani and GET TO THE MUSIC?

One of the biggest sellouts of all time.

You forgot the worst one, REBA who can not find her notes!

20 Billy Ray Cyrus

He's the reason we have you know who.

21 Hank Williams, Jr.

Hank Williams Jr has no business talking politics on fox or any other news station. He is a drunk and drug abuser and his fans are as well. He gives the weak minded and simplest country fans permission to think as little as possible and judge people too

If you don't like his music don't listen to it you little pussies. You butt hurt libtard are offend by every little things. This is the best there is out there

22 Rascal Flatts

He sounds like a girl and from the very first tie I heard them in the early 2000s I couldn't stand to hear them.

Yes, this country trio sucks! I hate them so much, the singer sounds like a girl. Oh... and their song My Wish is so damm overplayed on every radio station. so... My Wish is the worst country song ever made. I really hate their music a lot with all my heart. What's my favorite song from them? None. they suck and all their music is boring, mediocre and overplayed. I mean, I do love this music genre but they are ruining it! I cannot stand his whiny voice anymore, So... I cannot stand them anymore. I hate them so much! Guys, I hate all of you guys, please leave me in peace. You guys are annoying and that singer's whiny voice is annoying. You guys suck! Why are you ruining this music genre? It's not a bad genre but now you guys are making it awful. Hey guys, I really hate your all songs and your overplayed trashy song which is called "My Wish". That singer absolutely sounds like a girl. Radio:My wish for you. Me: No. I seriously had enough of you guys and your song My Wish. You ...more

23 Tim McGraw Samuel Timothy "Tim" McGraw is an American singer, songwriter and actor. He has been married to singer Faith Hill since 1996, and is the son of the late baseball player Tug McGraw. McGraw has released fourteen studio albums.

Wearing a cowboy hat doesn't make you a country artist

Worst voice in country music - flat.

24 Lee Brice
25 Willie Nelson Willie Hugh Nelson is an American musician, singer, songwriter, author, poet, actor, and activist. The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie, combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger and Stardust, made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music.

The man can not sing a lick. Gifted song writer but...I can go to a little bar in Nowhere, USA and listen to a karaoke singer with a better voice than him.

No he's good - christangrant
