Entertainment Weekly has released it’s 30 Greatest Music Artists Right Now, and country music has made an appearance, although I’m a tad surprised.
Right behind No. 1 Adele is our own Taylor Swift at No. 2 as the Everygirl Superstar. Taylor is feverishly working on a new album.
Carrie Underwood nabs 4th place as the Country Belle. Carrie has enjoyed some down time with hubby Mike Fisher, but her new album Blown Away will hit stores soon.
”I got to take a little more time making this album and I feel like I’m really ready for it to be out there,” she tells EW. ”It’s like the beginning of a relationship — everything is new and exciting.”
The real shocker, Jake Owen is named Nashville Casanova at No. 19. Although, he may not be Casanova any longer since he popped the question to Lacey Buchanon and the two will be hitched. Jake has spent the last several years on the road, and will take to the stadiums this year with Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney on the Brothers of the Sun tour.
”I’ve spent the last six years playing anywhere and everywhere,” he tells EW. ”And I’m going to continue appreciating each day I can grab a guitar and sing.”
You can see the entire list here which includes the Foo Fighters, Katy Perry, and more. I’m shocked that Lady Antebellum or Kenny Chesney didn’t make the list…anyone else??
