Country music went mainstream in the 1990s. That decade saw the rise of superstars including Reba McEntire, Braid Paisley, and Faith Hill, artists who put their own unique stamp on the timeless sounds of classic country music. Many of the nominees and winners of the Grammy Award for Best Country Album during these years are still making hit records today.

What LPs will you find on this list of the best country albums of the 1990s? Garth Brooks was nominated for the Best Country Album Grammy in 1999 for his release, Sevens. “Longneck Bottle,” “She's Gonna Make It,” and “Two Pina Coladas” are just a few of that album's hit singles. Brooks lost the trophy that year to the Dixie Chicks, who made a splash with their major-label debut Wide Open Spaces.

Shania Twain also emerged as a favorite of fans and Grammy voters throughout the 1990s, winning one award and receiving another nomination. Other Grammy-nominated recordings featured on this 1990s country albums list include Faith by Faith Hill and George Strait's Carrying Your Love with Me.
