If you too believe that there is no greater pleasure than drowning yourself in classic tunes and lilting lyrics and absolutely swear by old-timey country music throbbing with fiddle, guitar, and banjo, then you will totally lap up the lives, feats, and deeds of some of America's most renowned and lauded country singers here. Now whether you dig for the '20s rowdy and bawdy kind of melody or are just all big for the entertaining, down-home '30s or just love grooving to the more contemporary country music, we have the best singers across the years covered for you here. These were the legendary country-singing folks who resonated the rural, working class experiences with lilting charm. These singers evoked reminiscences of country with their instrumentation, themes, and robust down-south twang. Johnny Cash, Bob Wills, Buck Owens, Marty Robbins, Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, and Patsy Cline are some of the most celebrated American country singers to have strummed a chord with their audience. Trail the timeline, trivia, and interesting facts in the biographies of famous American country singers here.
