Subscribe to Taste of Country on

As the current season of ‘American Idol’ comes to a close it looks like country won’t get another winner. But we’ve certainly had our share of success on Fox’s top-rated reality show. Scotty McCreery, Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood are three winners who’ve gone country, but who’s the all-time best?

Taste of Country head writer Billy Dukes looks at the stats, the songs and the lasting careers of 10 country stars that started on ‘American Idol,’ and whittles it down to five. This means a few — like Lauren Alaina — just miss out. Watch the video above and decide who you think country’s top singer on ‘Idol’ is.
