    Country Soul, or Southern Soul, is not really a sub-genre of Country Music; it is really a sub-genre of Soul Music. It's pioneers included Ray Charles, James Brown, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Rufus Thomas, and Elvis Presley. Stax Records' artists Otis Redding, Booker T. & The MGs, Sam Cooke, Carla Thomas, Eddie Floyd, Johnnie Taylor, The Staple Singers, Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett, and Isaac Hayes all contributed.

    Some present day artists who still perform Southern Soul are: Shirley Brown, Sir Charles Jones, Barbara Carr, Willie Clayton, Bobby Rush, Denise LaSalle, Reggie Sears, TK Soul, Joyce Cobb, O.B. Buchanan, Karen Wolfe, LeBrado, Redd Velvet, Vick Allen, Floyd Taylor, Bigg Robb, Omar Cunningham, Jeff Floyd, Mel Waiters, Roni, Theodis Ealey, Roy C, Donnie Ray, Millie Jackson, Calvin Richardson, and Ms. Jody.

    Although there is no specific sub-genre for Country Soul in Country Music, there has been a King of Country Soul (Don Gibson), and a Queen of Country Soul (Jeannie Seely). Other classic artists who I would classify as singers of Country Soul are: Jack Barlow, Charlie Rich, Joe South, Skeeter Davis, Donna Fargo, George Jones, Hank Williams, and Ronnie Milsap.
