When you think of Kansas, what type of music comes to mind? If you are like most people, then you probably reminisce about the vibrant country scene the state has had for decades. One of the largest country music festivals in the United States, the Country Stampede Music Festival, has taken place every year since 1996. Some of the biggest acts in the entire genre have performed at this event, and it looks like it will have many successful festivals to come. Country singers from Kansas and beyond have played in the state, and with any luck, many more acts from the state will have success in the years to come.
Martina McBride is one of the most successful country female artists of all time. She is known for her country pop style and for cranking out such hits as "The Time Has Come" and "Reckless." Other popular country singers from Kansas include Logan Mize, Jerrod Niemann, and Chely Wright.
