Cassadee Pope: When her pop-punk band Hey Monday called it quits, this girl picked herself up, dusted herself off and launched a country career by winning season 3 of The Voice. That's a really good dusting if I do say so myself.
Eli Young Band - The boys have stated for the record that they would rather not be grouped in with a lot of other popular country acts and end up being called "bro-country." Then again, wouldn't most of us rather not end up being called "bro-country?" We feel you, Eli Young Band.
Tim McGraw - As of 2014, he'll have 9 Great Hits albums, numerous music awards, an acting career to fall back on and a reference in a Taylor Swift song that's NOT about him dumping her. Yee-haw, that's impressive.
Jake Owen - Look, you can talk all you want about his music career but let's be honest: you're going to see Jake Owen because of that glorious mane of hair. I mean, look at it! It just looks so silky and soft, right?
