George Jones & 49 Other Great Male Singers

The passing of George Jones Friday led many in the media to call him the greatest country singer of all time, which of course is true (well…says me, at least).

Some even called him the greatest singer of all time, period, which I wouldn't waste a ton of breath fighting folks on either. But it got me thinking about who else is up there with him on my personal list of favorite male vocalists. I came up with 50 to share with y'all on a Spotify playlist.

So, who do you think I glaringly omitted? Or egregiously included? (Some I left off on purpose, some I'm sure I just spaced on.) If you have a reeeeeally good argument for somebody not on here, gimme the song he sings the pertiest on and I'll add it to the playlist…
