All of these lists should be taken with a grain of salt, especially when Rolling Stone talks about country music. I'd rather know what your favorite country album is. But since they brought it up, let's talk about their list.
Here are the top 10 country albums of all time according to Rolling Stone:
- Dolly Parton - Coat of Many Colors
- Waylon Jennings - Dreaming My Dreams
- Willie Nelson - Red Headed Stranger
- Ray Charles - Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music
- The Chicks - Fly
- Lucinda Williams - Car Wheels on a Gravel Road
- Merle Haggard - Serving 190 Proof
- Shania Twain - Come On Over
- Randy Travis - Storms of Life
- Taylor Swift - Fearless
I certainly agree with some of these: Dolly, Waylon, Willie, Ray and Randy would make my list as well. I would add Morgan Wallen's Dangerous, Clint Black's Killin' Time, Tim McGraw's Set This Circus Down, Trisha Yearwood Hearts in Armor, and Johnny Cash Live at Folsom Prison. Honorable mention for me would be Miranda Lambert The Weight of These Wings, Emmylou Harris Pieces of the Sky and Traveller by Chris Stapleton. What's on your list?
