With their heartfelt lyrics, strong vocal range, and magnetic personalities, these female country singers are many country music fans' favorite vocalists. While many artists on this list are established icons, like Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, and the late June Carter Cash, others are newer to the genre. Some have even crossed over, finding audiences in the pop and rock worlds,, including women country singers Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill, and top selling female singer of all time Shania Twain.

Many of the legends of the country genre are ladies who helped paved the way for the today's top female country singers. Women like Patsy Cline, Tammy Wynette, and Lynn Anderson are responsible for early hits that made lasting impacts for other girl country singers. As some of the foremothers of country music, they are considered to be not only the some of the top singers from a lyrical and popularity standpoint, but also due to their importance in making it culturally acceptable for country music to accept females in the usually male-driven industry.
