This country pop groups list ranks the best pop country music groups and singers who are making some of the best country songs of 2018. This list of good pop country artists lets you see who pop country fans think are the best country bands in popular music. Though it's been around since the early 1970s, country pop exploded in the 1990s becoming a force on both country radio and top 40 radio. While some country bands eschewed this turn, many country groups embraced pop music and thus, country pop has become one of the most widely heard genres of music. Country music groups are now even selling out stadiums across the country. Some of the biggest country bands play country pop and have taken a genre that wasn't well known before to being one of the most popular genres of music.

So, who are the best country pop singers? Any list of country pop artists has to include the likes of Blake Shelton, Faith Hill, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert, Shania Twain, and Taylor Swift. As country pop has exploded, the beneficiaries of this popularity has been the country music groups themselves. The top country groups are widely known for singing catchy hooks and good time music, and have helped usher in this period of country pop.

 

That said, it's up to you to determine who are the best country pop artists. If a famous singer or a younger new act is missing from this list, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best country pop bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest country pop 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 pop bands that you might've heard of.
