Carrie Underwood is the most famous act in the world right now. Her latest single, "All American Girl," is going strong on country radio and Country Music Television. She maintains a hectic tour schedule and still finds the time to meet with her fans. Every since she hit the charts with "Jesus Take The Wheel," she has been on fire. There isn't enough water to put her out at this point.

9. Gretchen Wilson

Gretchen Wilson
Sony BMG
Although Gretchen Wilson does not fit into the category of the size zero blondes, she does fit into the category of one hot "Redneck Woman." Her sound is not perfect, but it's real. She sings about real life, and an occasional bar anthem or two, but when you get right down to it, she's awesome. It doesn't matter what she's singing, she stands strong against any female act in country music.

8. Rebecca Lynn Howard

Rebecca Lynn Howard
MCA Nashville
Rebecca Lynn Howard is a young lady who has never gotten the recognition she deserves. Her looks are amazing, but her talent is endless. Whenever she is not telling her man to get out, as in the amazing song "Forgive," she may be singing about how good it is in "Out Here In The Water." Whatever she is singing, it sounds good. Having one of her CDs is a must in any collection.

7. Kellie Pickler

Kellie Pickler
Sony BMG
America fell in love with her on American Idol, but since she hit country music radio, she has been on fire. Whether it's her country appeal or her model good looks, there is something about Kellie that's unique. People find her quirky, and love her naive, country charm. Naive isn't always a bad thing. Dolly Parton was accused of the same thing, and look where she is today.

6. LeAnn Rimes

LeAnn Rimes
Curb Records
There aren't enough good things to say about this young lady. She's got the looks and the sound, which has helped her mold into one of today's top country females. LeAnn displays an amount of confidence that you don't always see when someone is performing live. Her albums are full of quality-driven songs, as well as life lessons and experience.

5. Lori McKenna

Lori McKenna
Warner Nashville
This one time "stay at home mom" decided to turn in her apron for some guitar strings and then put down the iron and pick up an ink pen. Lori McKenna has written numerous songs for some of Nashville's biggest names. Faith Hill, Sara Evans and Tim McGraw have all recorded her songs and now with the help of Tim, she released her latest album Unglamorous. Her raw sound mixes well with her sheer beauty. If you have not become familiar with her, you're missing out.
Download/Purchase "Unglamorous"

4. Rhonda Vincent

Rhonda Vincent
Rounder Records
Country music and bluegrass walk side by side, so why not give credit to the "Queen Of Bluegrass," Rhonda Vincent. Her songs come straight from the heart and her fingers can pick just about any instrument you put in front of her. She's played mandolin and has sang back up for Dolly Parton numerous times. Any time you hear Rhonda Vincent and The Rage, you will experience the bluegrass performance of a lifetime.
Download/Purchase "I Will See You Again"

3. Ashton Shepherd

Ashton Shepherd
MCA Nashville
This pretty little Alabama native has catapulted into the country music scene with her debut single "Takin' Off This Pain." It seems every time you turn on the radio, you hear Ashton. Her young voice is pure and solid, which helps the females in country music shine. Her voice carries the twang and emotion that will grab anyone's attention. Prepare yourself, she will be one of country's hottest female acts.

2. Julie Roberts

Julie Roberts
Mercury Nashville
When she hit the charts with "Break Down Here," everyone speculated that she would be the next big thing. Although she has struggled over the past few years, she is still one of the hottest and sweetest female country singers. In her world, "Men and Mascara" always run, but there are probably dozens who are waiting in line for a date with Julie Roberts.

1. Miranda Lambert

Miranda Lambert
Sony BMG
This beautiful young lady has accomplished a lot since her country career began. She's had multiple singles and two albums that have become fan favorites. Known for her feisty attitude and wild songs, Miranda will never have to worry about her fame being limited to a small town.
