The Best Red Dirt Singers

Getting its name from the soil in Oklahoma, Red Dirt singers are generally from the Sooner State (Stillwater in particular). One Red Dirt music's greatest attributes is how it's sound is expansive in the sense that few people can accurately pinpoint it. Some associated Red Dirt bands with alt-country, others with Americana and folk. No matter what your definition is, Red Dirt music remains wildly popular in America's heartland with Red Dirt country dominating the radio and live shows in that particular region. Though the sound is closely associated with Oklahoma, the difference between that and Texas country music has dimmed over the years and with some Red Dirt bands intertwining the sound that was once so distinctive between the neighboring states.

So, what are the best the Red Dirt bands? Any list of Red Dirt bands has to include the likes of Stoney LaRue, Bob Childers, Randy Rogers Band, Jason Boland & the Stragglers and Wade Bowen. These are widely considered some of the biggest name in Red Dirt music and with good reason. When people think of Red Dirt country these are the names they're likely to associate with the genre. No matter which generation of Red Dirt music you like, we can all agree that these are the best Red Dirt artists, period.

That said, it's up to you to determine what are the best Red Dirt bands. If you know Red Dirt music, then don't hesitate to have your voice heard. Also, if you notice that a band is missing, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best red dirt bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest red dirt 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 red dirt bands that you might've heard of.
