The Top 12 Guitar Shredding Artists In Country Music

As a guitar hobbyist myself, (not a very good one) I am continuously amazed at what people can do with 6 strings and a block of wood.

Watching Brad Paisley, Charlie Worsham, and Randy Houser jam out til 3 a.m. at Joe’s Bar will forever be one of the greatest moments of my life. Like me, just about everyone loves a live show and nothing is better than seeing your favorite artists get on stage and shred. Here’s my list of 12 guys that are sure to blow the roof off the joint with some great guitar work. If you get the chance… Go see them play!

Side Note: I only included, more or less, current frontmen in this post. I know there are tons of great guitar players out there in every band, some of whom I know personally. Also I left out session guys and older artists that aren’t necessarily putting out a ton of new music right now and going forward i.e. Vince Gill, who, trust me, I think he is a god. So here it goes:
