What are the best and most beautiful female country singers?
Country music is an American musical style that incorporates elements of folk, bluegrass, blues, and rural dance music. Music historians trace its origins to the southern Appalachian Mountains in the late 1920s, particularly in eastern Tennessee and southwest Virginia. Over the course of the twentieth century, the genre spread in all directions, particularly westward, which has led some to refer to it as country western music, as masterclass.com reported.
There have been robust country music scenes all throughout the United States, including in Austin, Texas; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and Bakersfield, California. However, the modern hub of the country music genre is Nashville, Tennessee. Nashville is home to the legendary Grand Ole Opry venue, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and countless studios where country stars record chart-topping hits.
It’s easy to remember a time when women weren’t welcome on the country stage. When it was thought that audiences wouldn’t buy albums of female-led songs, and even worse, wouldn’t attend concerts where women were making music. Since then, so much has changed in country music. Women now have as strong a presence as men in the industry, with legends like Patsy Cline paving the way for those who would follow – Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton among them. Today we take a look at some of the top female singers in country music. Here are our top 10 best and most beautiful female country singers that we summed up:
1. Carrie Underwood
2. Shania Twain
3. Taylor Swift
4. Mickey Guyton

9. Martina McBride
Born Martina Mariea Schiff on July 29, 1966, in Sharon, Kansas, it seemed like music was in the cards for this country music superstar from the beginning. Martina grew up in a musical family and was introduced to country music by her father, who fronted a band known as the Schifters. She was singing and playing keyboard with the group by the time she was a teenager.
The Purple Envelope
Knowing full well that labels don't accept unsolicited material, McBride put a bio, some photos and two demos in a purple envelope. She wrote "Requested Material" on the front and sent it off to RCA Records. She got a call three weeks later and was asked to come in for an interview. She was signed after performing a showcase to demonstrate her ability to sing live.
McBride's first album, The Time Has Come, was released in 1992. Its reception wasn't all that great, but her follow-up album, 1993's The Way That I Am, was a commercial success. "My Baby Loves Me" earned her a Top 5 single, ultimately soaring up to No. 2. Although it never charted, "Independence Day" was hugely popular and it continues to be one of the singer's most recognizable songs. The music video for the song won the CMA Video of the Year award in 1994.
McBride's third album, Wild Angels, was another hit. The title track became her first number 1 single. She enjoyed some crossover success in 1997 with her fourth album, Evolution, which sold more than two million copies. Then she collaborated with new age artist Jim Brickman on "Valentine." The song made it to the Top 10 and it was also a huge hit on the adult contemporary charts. McBride added two more number ones to her collection with "A Broken Wing" and "Wrong Again." Evolution was the album that propelled her into country stardom.
Emotion came out in 1999 and earned McBride another No. 1 hit for "I Love You." The song was both a country and adult contemporary success. She won the CMA Female Vocalist award that same year, as liveabout.com reported.

Her first Greatest Hits album was released in 2001 and Martina was released in 2003. The album celebrates womanhood, and its first single, "This One's for the Girls," was a huge hit. It included backup vocals from Faith Hill, Carolyn Dawn Johnson, and McBride's two daughters. After much success singing country pop, Martina made a bold move in 2005 by releasing Timeless, an album of classic country covers, and both Martina and Timeless became Top 10 hits.
Waking Up Laughing was released in 2007, followed by Shine in 2009. Martina released her 11th studio album in 2011, aptly titled Eleven. She shook things up with 2014's Everlasting, an album of R&B and soul covers.
10. LeAnn Rimes
With her stage name “LeAnn Rimes,” singer/songwriter/novelist/actor Margaret LeAnn Rime Cibrian shot to stardom at the tender age of fourteen, becoming one of the country music industry’s brightest young stars. For her first studio album “Blue,” Rimes won two Grammy Awards, making her a household name in the music industry at the tender age of five and performed in Texas theatres and cable television shows.
According to futuretranic.com, when she began her career, she was a country singer, but she soon moved on to other genres such as pop, adult contemporary, and rock. She’s been compared to the legendary country singer Patsy Cline because of their similar musical and vocal characteristics; some music experts view her work as a legacy to Cline’s singing career.

She made the decision to pursue country music after her performance on Star Search, a network television competition show. She also appeared on ‘Johnnie High’s Country Music Revue’ on a number of occasions during this era. By the time she was nine, Rimes was already a seasoned professional vocalist thanks to her enormous media exposure. During football games, she began singing “The Star Spangled Banner” a cappella. When her father started recording under the independent label “Nor Va Jak,” she went on tour with him and took part in a variety of musical endeavours. She released three albums under that name between 1996 and 1996.
As a Dallas DJ and record promoter, Bill Mack made Rimes a household name in the United States. In 1994, she covered Mack’s self-composition for her independent album ‘All That,’ which she titled ‘Blue.’ ‘Blue’ was re-issued on Rimes’ first studio album, ‘Blue,’ which was published in 1996. There were four million copies sold in the United States of the album, which peaked at number ten on Billboard’s country chart. Because of the success of her single “Blue,” she became the youngest person in Grammy history to win two awards. The Country Music Association presented her with the “Horizon Award” for “Best New Artist Of The Year.”
“Unchained Melody: The Early Years,” which was released in 1997, had more contemporary adult contemporary music than country music.
