A Salute To Some Of The Underrated Heroes Of ’90s Country Music

Mark Chesnutt, Patty Loveless and Neal McCoy

Who do you think of when you think of 90’s country?

Usually for me it’s people like Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn, Reba, Joe Diffie, Tracy Lawrence – the legends who would be on just about anybody’s list of great 90’s country artists.

But damn, there were some unsung heroes of the 90’s too.

I’m talking people who pumped out hit after hit that we loved back in the day, but sometimes don’t get the credit they deserve. People you loved but may have even forgotten about.

So I thought it’s time we paid tribute to some of these underrated heroes. Artists who helped provide the soundtrack of a generation, whose music you can go back and listen to and it’s still just as great as you remembered it.
