Aside from Hank Sr. it's gotta be Merle.

When whiskey and blood run together, I didn't hear anyone pray...
Here's to daddy Claxton, may his reign forever stand And always be remembered in the courts of Alabam... <whoo Whoooo>

THAT would be the KING of Country Music, Mr. Roy Acuff.

Uncle Dave Macon.

OMFG, aren't BASTARDS just BEAUTIFUL?!?!

Re: Best country singer?

Hank Williams, Sr. and
Lefty Frizzell

Love the voice of Molly O'Day.

Re: Best country singer?

Ohh,Lefty: "You're Always Late (with your kisses)" "I'll Love You a Thousand Ways"

"If you got the money, I got the time _ we'll go honky tonkin' we'll drink beer and wine __ but if you run outta money honey I'll run outta time _ ..."

Hank and Lefty filled every jukebox, that's the way it was in '51.

Taylor Swift.

She is the greatest country singer, and singer in general, of all time!

Re: Best country singer?

George Strait or Dolly Parton.

Re: Best country singer? (All time Gals)

Patsy obviously

Some real good: Reba (absolutely love "Whoever's in New England")
Lo-Retta (Dang, she *is Country)
Emmy Lou Harris
That good lookin' Canadian gal who was big in '70s and '80s
She was Country\Pop. "You Needed Me", etc. ANN MURRAY

Re: Best country singer?

Wow! Good to see the old school so well represented. Mr. Acuff was the first superstar in country and Hank Sr. was the first badboy and prolific songwriter, but Lefty Frizzell had a bigger impact on country music than most people realize. George Jones is a close second. I've always liked George Strait, but he'd only be an opening act in hillbilly heaven.

Re: Best country singer?

Yeah, McCartney made a switch after seeing ol' Lefty. So, how come it was Ringo singin' them down home tunes? He was a natural fer HEE-HAW.

Re: Best country singer?

Taylor Swift no doubt.

Being straightedge means I'm better than you.

Re: Best country singer?

Hank 3 and Wayne Hancock

Re: Best country singer?

Willie Nelson.

Re: Best country singer?

Conway Twitty

When I was young, they kept playing an infomercial for his music. I kept singing snippets of his songs, because of that infomercial. I would go around the house singing, "One town, just in mine (?), You want a man with a slow hand, That's my job, that's what I do."

Volker Flenske: (While torturing David) I don't know why you're doing this to yourself!

Re: Best country singer?

Kacey Musgraves
although classified as C/W, is really something else... maybe "Modern Folk"

. . . . . . . . . . . . .
...it's a whole lot harder to shine.... than undermine.
