Bucky Covington

The country favorite from the fifth season of ‘American Idol’ was Bucky Covington, who finished eighth that year. The singer from Rockingham, N.C. was as charming as any in the show’s history, and he turned that into radio gold — his debut album peaked at No. 1 while selling nearly 500,000 copies. A follow-up was expected in 2010, but Lyric Street closed, leaving this singer professionally homeless. Along with James, he is one who came prepared to play live after the series ended.

Josh Gracin

Country music’s first ‘American Idol’ star was Josh Gracin, who released the Top 5 song ‘I Want to Live’ shortly after finishing fourth following the show’s second season. Gracin has a Gold record, three Top 5 singles — including the chart-topping ‘Nothing to Lose’ — and a number of other songs that earned significant radio play. While he parted ways with Lyric Street Records, he has since signed with Average Joes.

Scotty McCreery

There was little doubt that Scotty McCreery would win Season 10 of ‘American Idol.’ The Garner, N.C. native delivered dominating performances each week, and his humble charm swept fans off their feet. His debut album went Platinum, and he’s followed that with a Gold Christmas album. Over time, McCreery could eclipse the No. 2 singer on this list, but he’ll need to find more success on the radio. ‘I Love You This Big’ is his highest charting song to date, peaking inside the Top 20. McCreery earned his spot as a top country ‘American Idol’ singer.

Kellie Pickler

While with BNA Records, Kellie Pickler made a living from mid-charting songs that peopled rushed to buy. However, her best album came as she was splitting from the label. ‘Tough’ was named one of the top records of 2012 by many critics. Much like the No. 1 singer on this list of the top country singers from ‘American Idol,’ this North Carolinian combines artistry with commercial success – not to mention a telegenic personality. Now with Black River Entertainment, the future looks bright for Pickler.

Carrie Underwood

It’s impossible to ignore Carrie Underwood as the all-time best country singer from ‘American Idol.’ She’s sold more albums than any other singer of any genre that appeared on the show. ‘Blown Away’ will be her fourth album to go muti-Platinum, and she has a dozen No. 1 hits. Underwood is arguably the most recognizable star in the format — something you’d never realize if you ran into her at the supermarket or church. Despite the fame from the show, she has remained humble
