There are a few women in country music you definitely don’t want to double-cross. For some, it’s because of the songs they sing. For others, it’s their lifestyle. A few artists included in this poll have built a legacy on empowering female anthems. While they may be older, they’ve surely lost no grit. Who do you think is the toughest woman in country music?

The first modern singer that comes to mind is Miranda Lambert, but Reba McEntire, Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton have all sustained multi-decade long careers. Gretchen Wilson proved with her very first single that she wasn’t a woman to be messed with. Much like Wilson, Kellie Pickler‘s hard-scrabble childhood qualifies her for inclusion. Vote for one of these women as the toughest on the block, or add in another name in the comments section below.
