2019 gave us some amazing country acts so it's fun to think about who will be the biggest stars of 2020. Past choices of mine include: Maren Morris, Luke Combs, and Jon Pardi, and here are my choices for the names you're going to be hearing a lot in the next year.

Tennile Townes

Good Lord this Canadian singer has the voice of an angel. I honestly have nothing to say, let her show you for herself.

Ryan Hurd

You may know him as Maren Morris' husband, but he is a huge up and comer in his own right. He has written many songs for artists like Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton. His new song Michigan for the Winter can be heard below.

Brandon Lay

A new name you might not have heard before, but one you shouldn't forget. He made his Grand Ole Opry debut this year and had a couple songs charting. Plus every song of his is super catchy.

Tyler Braden

This is the newest name on my list. Literally just got signed to a record deal, and only released 3 songs this year. But honestly, he might be the best newcomer I've heard.

Gabby Barrett

She got her start on American Idol where she was a front runner, now she's making a name for herself as a force to be reckoned with. Her debut single I Hope has been streamed over 5 million times and the video has been viewed over 20 million.
