Luke Bryan: A winner of ACM’s prestigious Entertainer of the Year award, Bryan can move from earnest, heart-on-his-sleeve tunes (“Rain Is a Good Thing” ) to jam-friendly party anthems (“Country Girl [Shake It for Me]”) with ease.
Little Big Town: Little Big Town is a land of rich four-part harmonies where everyone shares duties as lead singer, like a country version of The Beatles but with fewer beards. Vocalists Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook, and Phillip Sweet blend together so effortlessly in hits such as “Pontoon” and “Boondocks” that the awards—multiple CMAs. ACMs, an ACA, and a Grammy—have practically swooned at their feet.

Eric Church: With a trademark sound that mixes outlaw country rock with bluegrass, Carolina twang and lyrical specificity, Church has made a name for himself with hits including “Smoke a Little Smoke,” “Love Your Love the Most,” and “Springsteen.” His latest, The Outsiders, was 2014’s best-selling country album.
Darius Rucker: having reestablished himself as a country star decades after his rock debut with Hootie and the Blowfish, the winsome singer-songwriter struck gold (and platinum and whatever alloy Grammys are made of) with the smash hit “Wagon Wheel,” which started a streak of number-ones including “Alright,” “Come Back Song,” and “This”

Jason Aldean: After scoring his first ACM Award for Top New Male Vocalist in 2005, this Nashville juggernaut racked up an astonishing string of 14 #1 hits, including heartland-tugging smash “Fly Over States” and the Billboard Music Award winning scorcher “Burnin’ It Down.”
Dierks Bentley: half genteel charmer, half small-town troublemaker, the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter topped the charts with the rollicking story-song “What Was I Thinkin’,” the sentimental cartographer anthem “Every Mile a Memory,” and the patriotic ballad “Home” from his seventh Top 10 album of the same name.
