This list is by no means exhaustive, but it's a start. These were artists I grew up listening to in the 70s-80s because of my Dad. He was a big Country fan, so a lot of these artists are burnt into my memory because of him. But his all-time absolute favorites were Merle Haggard and George Jones. It was Merle, George and then everybody else.
