Every great artist knows they wouldn’t be where they are today without legends that paved the way. And while each country sangin’ lady is a star in their own right, we can’t help but see a little bit of comparison between some of our modern day country singers and some of these legends.
- Carrie Underwood and Reba
At first glance one might not get it, but who else can tell a twisted story with vocals so pure it makes it seem effortless?
- Cam and Dolly Parton
Fairly convinced Cam is Dolly reincarnated. I mean, let’s face it….Dolly could sing Cam’s ‘My Mistake’ and go top of the charts just as easily as Cam could sing ‘Why’d You Come In Here Looking Like That?’ and do the same.
- Cassadee Pope and Shania Twain
Okay sure, they can both rock crop tops like no one’s business, but their fun, distinctive sounds and captivating performances on stage definitely remind us of one other.
- Kacey Musgraves and Loretta Lynn
Really…this is a no brainer. Other than the great hair, it’s the way they both could get a message across in a traditional song that resonates deep in the souls of true country music lovers. That is timeless.
- Kelsea Ballerni and Taylor Swift
Yeah, we know Taylor is a bit young to be a legend, but it’s my thread and Taylor is queen so deal. But seriously…no one does Taylor Swift quite like Kelsea. From the song writing to the bubbly personality. #NailedIt
- Mickey Guyton and Martina McBride
Uhhh….one mord: Ballads. Both vocalists make them their full time job. Simply stunning.
- Miranda Lambert and Jo Dee Messina
Jo Dee Messina was the original feisty chick. Let’s face it…we were all scared of crossing her. And I think it’s safe to say Miranda definitely puts fear in some people for the same reason.
Massive thanks to all the ladies out there paving the way and doing the damn thing.

Funny that Loretta has said in several interviews that Miranda reminds her most of herself in the way she speaks her mind and how she addressesl subjects in her songwriting.
Loretta herself when asked ALWAYS cites Miranda as the artist that reminds her of herself the most. She said it again just a few weeks ago at the PBS interview. Fearless singer songwriter and for album after album, she has written songs about the real situations and honored country music. Dolly/Loretta but no to Jo Dee Messina. That is the thing about Miranda- she is a Bad Ass but she can move you w/ her voice & lyrics like no one else & that screams Dolly or Loretta. Miranda has also stood the test of time over 10 years/ 5 albums.
I think your comparisons are right on. I would put Carrie as a Reba/Dolly type and throw in a little Patsy, Shania and Barbara Mandrell. I watched the Storyteller concert in Jacksonville on line and Carrie is by far, without a doubt, the female ETOTY. Her concert is amazing and like no other country concert at all. She is compelling and has her audience enthralled and thoroughly entertained for the 100 minutes she is on stage. Her stage is huge and she uses every inch of it. Her vocals on Dolly’s I will Always Love You is chilling and simply beautiful. She is the best of the best.
