Who Are Some of the Most Popular Country Singers?


As of 2015, some the most popular country artists include Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Chris Young, Miranda Lambert, and Jack Aldean, according to CMT. Taylor Swift's inclusion has been criticized because of her pop music leanings.

While CMT (Country Music Television) is a good indicator of how well an artist is doing, Billboard also makes its own list of popular country musicians based on record sales and number of digital plays. In 2014, the list included Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Blake Shelton, Brantley Gilbert, Miranda Lambert, Lady Antebellum, Garth Brooks, and Dierks Bently as the top 10 country artists for that year.
