It’s a brand new week, which means it’s time to rank the top artists in country music once again!
This time, I’m comparing a few of the top-ranked country artists to college football teams…
Luke Combs – Clemson: New at being dominant. But already expected to be.
Luke Bryan – Alabama: Been holding it down for a while. The biggest and best for the last five years.
Carrie Underwood – Oklahoma: Strong. Well coached. Also makes sense with her Okie background.
Thomas Rhett – Auburn: Flashy. Flashy. Flashy. Spread offense. Let ’em rip.
Miranda Lambert – Texas: Known for greatness. Trying to get back to the highest rung on the ladder. So close.
Kane Brown – Utah: Carving his own path. You might not see all the wins, but he’s performing at an elite level.
There are a few shakeups on the chart this week. Luke Combs is back in that top spot. It’s always tricky with the No.1 position anyway. It’s been the constant shuffle of the Lukes (Combs/Bryan) and I don’t see that changing any time soon.
There’s a big jump for T-Rhett this week. He ranks in the Top 5 for the first time thanks to his first-ever sold-out show at Madison Square Garden.
And with “Living” being the top song at country radio, Dierks Bentley crawls into the Top 10.
