A new study by Studyfinds.com shows the “Best Female Country Singers of All Time”, and I’m really not gonna argue this one.
The List: Best Female Country Singers of All Time, Per Critics and Fans
1. Dolly Parton
The top spot on the list goes to perhaps the most influential country singer ever, Dolly Parton. This famous blondie appeared in the top spot across 70 percent of the sites referenced. Dolly isn’t just known for having one of the best amusement parks in the South, but her iconic status as one of the best in country will last long after she’s gone.
2. Loretta Lynn
The Coal Miner’s Daughter was the clear choice for second. Simply put, Loretta Lynn is a country music icon.
3. Reba McEntire
The red-headed country legend appeared on 70 percent of the sites we referenced and for good reason. Reba is recognizable by her first name alone, and that notoriety even helped her land her own TV show. Through it all, Reba has remained true to her country music roots.
4. Patsy Cline
Patsy Cline is responsible for some of the most iconic country music songs of all time and is beyond deserving of her place as one of the best.
Cline recorded these hits before she was lost in a tragic plane crash.
5. Carrie Underwood
The former ‘American Idol’ winner is one of the most decorated female singers of all time. “… Underwood has maintained her chart-topping success. Her career has gone on for nearly two decades, earning her over a hundred awards from various organizations, which has given Underwood the outstanding title of the most awarded country singer of all time.”
