Top Ten Worst Country Music Artists


The Top Ten

1 Carrie Underwood 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.

She is fake. She is trash. And she screams when she sings... It's like nails on a chalkboard. Claims to be a Christian woman and "religious" yet she dresses like a hoe, all her songs are awful and NO WHERE near country.

More like a crappy popstar

She should not be on here she is amazing so stop being mean to Carrie Underwood. I have your back Carrie Underwood

Shut up Carrie Underwood is amazing so stop hating

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,


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. - Cartoonfan202

Gotta be the worst Country band of all time. In fact I think they ruined the entire genre.

3 Luke Bryan 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.

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

Should be two or three

Ok why is Thomas Rhett on this list. He’s awesome. Also, even if I’m not a big fan of Luke Bryan, he’s a nice enough fella and shouldn’t be on this list. Even if I strongly dislike his music, he’s still a very nice man!

5 Sugarland 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.

6 Miranda Lambert 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.

u suck

7 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.

8 Sam Hunt 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.

Yup, I officially hate people. - Survivor101

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

Why isn't he numero uno. He is way worse than FGL who have made some good songs like confession, while all he's made is pop music

9 Brad Paisley

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

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.

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.

? Alan Jackson

The Contenders

11 Jason Aldean Jason Aldean

While better than some of his peers, he's definitely one of the blandest bro country artists. - WonkeyDude98

of the songs don't even sound close to country music

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".
