Who Are The Greatest Country Artists of All Time

Who are the greatest country artists of all time? 

Well, Rolling Stone has just made its picks. "We considered their lasting impact on the genre, their recorded output and even their legacy as an entertainer," the outlet writes about how it came up with its selections. 

"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." 

Honestly... I'm a little surprised George Strait didn't rank higher on the list.  He came in at number 20.

Here are the top ten:


10. Garth Brooks
