Unfamiliar country star?

Personally, I am not an ardent fan of the genre of country music, but nothing against him have. However, since this genre is not as raspiarili as pop music, less its representatives are familiar to the public.

In the box there are three Grammy

At the beginning of 2011 it has already sold more than 20 million albums and 34 million singles worldwide)) Here's a girl, and she was just another 21 years, what will happen next?

Further, it is impossible not to mention Carrie Underwood, whose entire career has accumulated over more than 90 nominations and 53 awards to these nominations, including five Grammy Awards

The girl is still young, so there is still time to achieve a lot, by the way, she is the winner of the contest American Idol 2005))

Miranda Lambert ... for me personally and heard the name and appearance of the form, but that's something I can not remember her songs, maybe not to my taste ...

Nevertheless, the 27-year-old girl has already received more than 50 different nominations of which 17 times took with them the award, including the Grammy

Shania Twain is not just a pop singer, but in general the lion's share of their awards received it as a country singer and is considered one of the most successful singers in country style

Toby Keith, whose albums became gold and platinum, and double all-different, though it was in the 90s, in the early 2000s, he fell silent, but now seems ready to jump back to the musical Olympus country music

Gretchen Wilson, who in her box also has a bunch of nominations and awards, including a Grammy.

Besides music, she is actively involved in charity and politics

During his career, has received more than 90 different awards, including two Grammys and a record seven times won the award in the «Academy of Country Music» in the category of best singer

I see what the list is, in principle, infinite)) I once again saw that country singer living in his own world (well, Taylor Swift does not take into account) - they are not so publicly as a pop star, not so often engage in scandals, etc., but still - their albums are gold-platinum-multi-platinum, etc., many of them are among the most highly paid musicians in the world ... I have the impression that the world of country music lives completely separate life as if it were another planet where its own rules, has its own "rulers" and "legislators."
