I realize there are many more underrated artists than those I named. I just chose to only list 5. Those I named are only recognized for the one or two hits they have. But their albums are beautifully put together and never acknowledged for their creativity as those who primarily fuel the country music genre. That is not to say they are any better than another extremely underrated artist. These are just the ones I’ve intently listened to and specifically watched their progress. There are way more underrated artists than acknowledged artists in this genre. A list of all these artists would probably take a couple days to compose.
