I'm just getting into Country music (on vinyl) … Can someone please give me good artist suggestions based on the few I know I like? Thanks.?

I already have a Travis Tritt album and a Mary Chapin Carpenter album. I think they're superb musicians in their own right. I love all kinds of music, but country is new to me and I don't know any other great artists. Anyone know any that I'd like based on the two that I already do like? Thanks.
