Stardom in Hollywood is fast and fleeting, some areas of the industry are worse than others, but all are affected by the quick pace at which social attitudes and interests change. For the music industry this means some stars have had some serious staying-power, rolling with the times and maintaining fans along the ways. Meanwhile others fell into obscurity or simply stopped making music. Country music has evolved over the years, along with many of the artists, but there are some we think the genre needs to hear from again! Check out 10 country music stars who need to make a comeback.
10. Merle Haggard
When it comes to country music legends, Merle Haggard’s name is one of the first to come to mind. He is well known as one of the first to bring about “outlaw country” and had major success in the ’60s and ’70s. While he made a comeback of sorts in 2000, we think it is about time he comes out with some new music since his last album was released back in 2011. His staying power in the industry is truly impressive and any genre can only benefit with more original music from a legend.
