Country music fans spend hundreds of dollars, travel hundreds of miles and wait endless hours in long lines just for a chance to see or meet their favorite country stars. It's unlikely that any other genre of music rouses as much dedication, but now, it's time to decide once and for all: Who are the most passionate fans in country music?

Over the next week, you can vote on this ultra competitive readers poll. Your last chance to weigh in will be Aug. 7 at 11:59PM ET, but don't worry -- you can come back every day until then to show your support for either Brantley Gilbert, Carrie Underwood, Lauren Alaina, Scotty McCreery, Taylor Swift or Jason Aldean. These artists were selected because their fans have consistently stepped up to defend or support the singers in other Taste of Country polls, the Showdown or just in general, never turning their backs on their favorite country singer.

If you think another artist has the most passionate fans in country, tell us in the comments section below.
