2017’s Hottest Artists Under 25

There are a handful of stars making waves in country music. These haven’t even seen their 25th birthday yet, but their presence in the genre is undeniable.


Kelsea Ballerini and Kane Brown return for this year’s Hottest Artists Under 25 list (both were featured on our list in 2016), proving that their careers only continue to rise as they reach for the top of the charts while captivating fans worldwide. You’ll also see newbies Temecula Road, a promising trio who are still in their teens, but who have voices that pack a serious punch. The Voice diva RaeLynn also appears — her successful debut album and authentic lyrics make her a shoo-in for such a designation.
