Cajuns are country, right? Not generally a very vocal oriented music, but there've been some great ones, with D.L. Menard leading the way. Here appearing with the wonderful family band L'Anjelus;
(there's about a minute of intro- I HATE intros.

They are all the best! Don't forget Keith Whitley!

Lefty left a great legacy in that many of the greats state their love, appreciation and inspiration from Lefty.

We all have our fav's....for me, it's Merle. I sure dig many of the ones listed here, but for me, Merle is the man.
Dwight Yokum. He, and Lee Roy Parnell are the only two I have ever paid to see live.

I love me some Johnny Cash as an artist, songwriter and music icon, but I still can't imagine why anyone would ever suggest him in the list of great country singers. As much as I love his music, to me he was not stylistically country, nor particularly a great singer, much less should he be considered great country singer.

Just my opinion...blast away!😁
I think you're right. And I grew up listening to his records. My father loved his music, and so do I. But yes, stylistically not 100% country.
