The Top Country Singers in Georgia Are...

Luke Bryan. Now a judge on “American Idol,” this Georgian also started as a songwriter back in 2004. His first album, “I’ll Stay Me,” was released in 2007 and he’s since released six more. Bryan had a Las Vegas residency in 2022, and has had a slew of hits such as “I Don’t Want This Night to End,” “Drunk on You,” “Crash My Party,” “Drink a Beer,” “Kick the Dust Up,” “Strip it Down,” and “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day.”

Jason Aldean. Macon-born Aldean has release 10 albums so far, the first of which was self-titled in 2005. His 2010 album “My Kinda Party” was certified quadruple-platinum and he’s had 27 songs top the country charts. In 2017, Aldean was the performer on stage in Las Vegas at the Route 91 Music Festival when a gunman opened fire from a hotel room killing 60 people. In 2019, Aldean received the ACM Dick Clark Artist of the Decade. He has since released two albums, “Macon” in 2021 and “Georgia” in 2022.

Tim McGraw. A country star for more than three decades, immortalized in a Taylor Swift song, a TV star thanks to the “Yellowstone” franchise, and the husband of Faith Hill, McGraw is doing okay. McGraw has won 3 Grammys, 14 ACMs, 11 CMAs, and three People’s Choice Awards. Three of his songs, “It’s Your Love,” “Just to See You Smile,” and “Live Like You Were Dying,” were the No. 1 country songs of their respective years according to Billboard. And McGraw’s Soul2Soul II tour with Hill is one of the largest grossing tours in music history.

Miranda Lambert. Since her TV debut on “Nashville Star” in 2003, Lambert has been turning out hits, positioning herself as one of the biggest, and most fun, women in country, who’s pretty much stayed true to her country roots while others have strayed into pop. Lambert mixes a sharp sense of humor with a take-no-crap attitude and also records as part of the Pistol Annies. She was once married to Blake Shelton and is now married to a New York City policeman. Lambert has recorded 9 albums is a strong supporter of animal shelters with her Muttnation Foundation. Her songs include “It All Comes Out in the Wash,” “Bluebird,” “Mama’s Broken Heart” and “Tequila Does.” Lambert also won the ACM Female Vocalist of the Year Award 9 straight times.   

Sam Hunt. From Cedartown, Georgia, Hunt was a high school football star who played in college at UAB, and after filing to make the Kansas City Chiefs, he turned to country music. He started writing songs for Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban and Billy Currington then started releasing his own material. Hunt has only released two albums, “Montevallo” in 2014 and “Southside” in 2020. His biggest hit so far is “Body Like a Back Road,” which won Single Record of the Year at the 2018 ACMs. Hunt has been nominated for 5 Grammys. 

Carrie Underwood. Merle Haggard may have immortalized Muskogee, Oklahoma in song, but Carrie Underwood was born there. In 2005 she won the fourth season of “American Idol,” and Simon Cowell predicted big things for her. He was right. Her first album “Some Hearts,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country chart, and No. 2 overall. The album’s second single “Jesus Take the Wheel,” made her a superstar. That was soon followed by “Before He Cheats,” and there’s been no looking back. Other hits include “Cowboy Casanova” and “Something in the Water,” helping Underwood sell over 85 million records. In addition to her Grammys and other awards, Underwood also played Maria Von Trapp on the NBC Live! production of “The Sound of Music.” 

While none of these country stars will have bets behind them, or at least that we know of, you can always put on your favorite tunes as you place a bet i n 2024 on a sport at a legal site like BetMGM Georgia.
