MALE VOCALISTS for the Time Capsule(Part One)

A Listmania! list by highwayman-B (U.S.A and Canada)
The list author says: "You're welcome to check out PART TWO as well.

One odd note: People often think I'm a big country music fan. Definitely not. I strongly dislike most of it, even the most popular stars. But, for both male and female singers, a handful of country singers indeed are my very FAVORITE performers of all. In fact 10 out the top 15 I list here are country music icons. And a couple of the other 5 have a little country flavor sometimes too. But because I'm SO enthusiastic about those 10, they dominate my music collection and thus people assume I'm a country fan. Not so. I force myself to watch the Country Music Awards shows to stay current, but can't stand most of it. But yet look at my list!
(Also, I think the reason I like those 10 is that most have a distinctive immediately identifiable voice and style. When you hear a few notes, there's no doubt who is singing. Most other country singers sound pretty much the same in voice, tone and style.) I think the same criteria applies to my 6 favorite female 'countryish' performers as well. See my FEMALE VOCALISTS FOR THE TIME CAPSULE."
