Tim McGraw, George Strait Among America’s Favorite Artists
When it comes to popularity contests, country music more than holds its own. According to a recent Harris poll, which surveyed 2,320 American adults and asked them to name their favorite recording acts of all time, country artists took four of the top ten spots.
The No. 1 spot on the Harris list belongs to Celine Dion, followed by U2 and Elvis Presley. The Beatles rank just ahead of Tim. Lady Gaga holds the No. 6 position, with Frank Sinatra rounding out the top ten.
All four country stars named in the survey are still at the top of their career. Tim recently announced he was taking his Southern Voice tour Down Under, while George enjoys an extended time on the road with Reba McEntire. The Flatts guys will kick off their Nothing Like This tour on June 25, with Kellie Pickler and Chris Young serving as opening acts, while Alan, who just got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, is also being joined on the road by Chris as he tours in support of his latest album, ‘Freight Train.’
