Over the last decade, once reliable country superstars like Clint Black, Travis Tritt and Shania Twain have all but vanished. Sure, they may pop up on reality television or record an occasional duet, but with each passing year, fans are left hungry for new music from these former icons.

While the circumstances behind their disappearing act are quite different — Garth Brooks says he’s “retired” — the absence of artists like Tritt and the Dixie Chicks have left a hole on the radio for many fans. What “missing” country great from years past do you wish would rise again? Feel free to chime in and name an artist not listed in this Taste of Country readers poll in the comments section below.
