Country artists might just be the new pop stars. Since 2010, some of the biggest names in the music industry belong to that genre: Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, and Jason Aldean, just to name a few. These stars number among the nominees and winners for the Grammy Award for Best Country Album, musicians that have gone boot-toe to boot-toe with their fellow superstars.

What artists will you find on this list of the best country albums of the 2010s? Before officially switching to pop with 1989, Taylor Swift dominated the country awards circuit. She won the Grammy for Best Country Album in 2010 for Fearless. Trio Lady Antebellum has become popular with country music fans and Grammy voters, as has Kacey Musgraves, the singer-songwriter behind the 2014 hit Same Trailer Different Park.

Zac Brown Band's jamming style took the Grammys by storm and earned the group a trophy in 2013 for Uncaged. Other fan-favorite recordings featured on this 2010s country albums list include Tim McGraw's Two Lanes of Freedom and Traveller by Chris Stapleton.

It's your turn to decide which of these best 2010s album nominees deserves the top spot on this list. Vote your favorite Grammy-nominated release up to number one.
