Best Country Rock Bands/Artists

List Criteria: Just because a band has made a country rock album (like Bon Jovi) doesn't necessarily make them country rock. A group like the Eagles would better qualify

On the surface, the definition of country rock should be relatively simple. When people think of country rock music and country rock songs, they imagine country singers making to dreaded switch to play rock. However, many of the best country bands made the switch from rock to play country-infused songs, thus the name of country rock. Bands would record using a pedal steel, sing about themes commonly associated with country and by the beginning of the 1970s, country rock became a genre that became popular in the mainstream.

So, what are the best country rock bands? Any list of country rock bands has to include the likes of the Eagles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Zac Brown Band, Bob Dylan, The Doobie Brothers and The Band. These bands are closely associated with country rock and with good reason. They exemplify the fine line between rock music and country music and have managed to fuse the two to create a genre that's become popular in the generations since those early days.  

That said, it's up to you to determine what are the best country rock bands. If you know country rock and notice that someone is missing from this list of country rock bands, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best country rock bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest country rock musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular country rock bands that you might've heard of.
