    The greatest country singer is subjective to the individual. However I wouldn't put anyone that's come along in the last less than ten years anywhere close to being the greatest, they haven't really established anything in the way of a long running track record. Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, along with Roy Acuff Marty Robbins, Conway Twitty are certainly up there along with about another one hundred I could name. However one can not forget the Grand Dames of Country Western Music, such as Kitty Wells Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, or Tammy Wynette.

    As far as bringing it main stream, that started in about 1923, with Vernon Dalhart, and his recording of the "Wreck of Old 99," which became thew first million seller.Then you have to consider the likes of the original Carter Family, and Jimmy C. Rodgers, who really finished bringing it to the fore front, of the music world.
