Greatest Country Artists of All Time

When putting together this ranking of country music&#;s all-time greats, we looked to movie criticism for inspiration. For decades Citizen Kane topped nearly every list as the greatest film ever made, but with time, some started to realize that, hey, just maybe The Godfather is the better picture. Likewise, we reevaluated exactly where Hank Williams fits into country music, the true influence of Merle Haggard, and if an artist as clearly in the pop realm as Taylor Swift deserves inclusion. (Spoiler alert: She does.)

Of course, while artists is a lengthy list, there isn&#;t room for everyone. We didn&#;t include those who were primarily songwriters, like Hank Cochran and Harlan Howard. We respectfully skipped past Chet Atkins, who, though an architect of the Nashville Sound and a solo artist, was chiefly a sideman and producer. And we omitted both Elvis Presley and Ray Charles, whose admittedly important contributions to country music took a backseat to their work in rock & roll and soul.

For those who made the cut, we considered their lasting impact on the genre, their recorded output and even their legacy as an entertainer. Some of the contemporary artists we included – all of them already trailblazers – also benefited from our speculation that their best work may in fact be ahead of them.

But in the end, the common denominator for both legends and today&#;s stars was that they are all one-of-a-kind.

&#;Here&#;s the thing about history,&#; Vince Gill told Rolling Stone in , &#;the greatest artists that had the greatest longevity were all original.&#;

One of the most distinct and popular American art forms is country music. The origins of country music began in mostly rural areas as simply a person's words sung over an acoustic guitar. From that simple formula rose folk heroes who eventually became cultural icons. The top country music artists of all time are some of the most revered figures in music history, with this poll of the greatest country musicians spanning from classic country to contemporary country music.

From Nashville, Tennessee, to the Lone Star state of Texas, the biggest country artists' lives have been immortalized throughout their records and film. Johnny Cash is a prime example of a country artist who has appealed to people from every walk of life. In addition to the biopic Walk the Line, the Man in Black released over 90 studio albums, working tirelessly until his death in Another country music trailblazer, Willie Nelson is one of the genre's living legends, and he continues to tour and entertain fans throughout the country, even in his old age. Men, however, aren't the only superstars who redefined country music. Dolly Parton, Carrie Underwood, and Shania Twain broke countless glass ceilings, collaborating with artists across rock, pop, folk, and dance.

There are a lot of great names on this Ultimate List of the Top Country Artists of All Time. In fact, many of these critically acclaimed musicians have won Grammys, American Music Awards, Country Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and even Video Music Awards.

So it's up to you to decide who deserves to be named the best country music artist ever. Vote for your favorite country musicians below, and be sure to vote based on the quality of their albums and songs rather than simply their popularity or fame. 


Top 10 Country Singers Of All Time

It's easier to decide the best country singer from some states than it is others. There are just too many from Kentucky and Arkansas to decide quickly, and there are too few from South Dakota and Idaho to make it much of a competition.

It's likely that some states have never even been represented on the Top 40 of country music's airplay charts (looking at you, Maine!), while others seem to anchor the Top 10 every week (we see you working, Georgia). Geographically, there is no parity in country music.

As for states like Hawaii and Nevada? Well, to find the best country artist from these states we had to get a little creative and remain open-minded about the definition of "country." Hey, they can't all be Texas, where George Strait, George Jones and Willie Nelson battled for the title of best singer from the state.

Scroll down to find your home state and then let us know on Twitter if we got it wrong or missed someone obvious. This list of the best country singers from every state sticks to recording artists and counts any act who was born in &#x; or spent significant time in &#x; the state they're representing. That's critical to understanding our choices for Montana and Utah, two states with legends that are not typically associated with either of them. Included in each state listing is the runners-up and contemporary artists who have a chance of becoming No. 1 in the future.

The Best Country Singer From Every State

Some states, like Oklahoma and Texas, are loaded with famous country singers. Others, like Nevada and Maine, are still looking for a real breakthrough artist. See the best and most successful country music artist from all 50 states, starting with Hank Williams and Alabama.

Well, like that, although what kind of stupidity I am asking, maybe this is again my self-hypnosis. I walked past him, took a poster that is cheerful on the wall, so that at least, something to do, not. Just stand there. As soon as I turned my back on him, I again felt his gaze on me, maybe this is the sixth sense.

With difficulty putting the poster on the table, I leaned on it.

Seeing them, Pashka shuddered, and the member became even more bloodshot. He continued to masturbate, as he did then, lowering his penis to the level of my lips and occasionally touching them. I tried to stick out my tongue, licking the head.
