As a music fan and a strong country music fan, I simply love country singers with deep voice.
I mean think about it – how will country music sound if you have a shrill or high pitched voice.
I can’t even play that picture in my head
There is just something relaxing and absolutely beautiful about listening to country music and the singer has that deep booming baritone voice.
You can definitely fall asleep to such music
Country singers with deep voices come in different forms
There are some well known and famous country singers that have low voices throughout their careers while some developed it later as their careers started to blow.
Which is why I decided to put this article together.
You will find some of the greatest country musicians in this article and a YouTube video of their songs.
1. Johnny Cash
Johnny was one of the greatest country musicians and his deep booming voice was a beauty to listen to.
I also have him in this article where I wrote about my top 15 musicians with deep voices.
So it’s no surprise seeing him appear also in the country singers section.
Johnny’s music had that soothing effect on everyone that listened to his songs.
In my opinion, Johnny music will continue to be played and live with future generations.
2. Josh Turner
Now this is one country singer that has a deep baritone voice that you can simply listen to all day.
Josh is an American country, gospel singer and actor that was born November 20, 1977.
He plays the guitar and is a very good vocalist
In 2003, he signed a record deal with MCA Nashville Records and debuted his first album that same year.
His single “Long Black Train” was a huge success and his breakthrough single release.
Presently not much has been heard of Josh asides from when he had a ghastly accident while coming back from a concert that unfortunately killed his sound engineer.
3. Trace Adkins
Also known as Tracy Derell this is one awesome country music singer that I can listen to all day.
Making his debut in 1996 with the album dreaming out loud which was released under Capitol records, Adkins has been steadily dropping hits after hits

Looking at his life history and the fact that he came out of all of them unscathed, you can be sure that this is one guy that was destined to do great things.

But one thing you need to remember Randy for was his deep rich baritone voice and the countless country music he gave us.
