There is zero indication that Vince Gill left his record label. I also looked at davidcountry's lists and there are multiple issues with all of them. Some of the artists listed are self-released and not affiliated with a label. Other artists are rock, Christian, pop, folk, or Americana acts that are not releasing music as a solo country act and have not made any indication that they will in the future. And then some are international artists not affiliated with a U.S. based label. All of these issues excludes them from being listed under this topic.
There are sub-genres under country as well. Rock, Christian, Pop, Folk and Americana are sub-genres. Darius Rucker was an alternative rockers. Vince Gill was a soft rocker. Sheryl Crow was a rocker. Kid Rock was a rapping rocker.
Bruce Springsteen have been releasing his albums under country and Americana. He is now listed as a country artist. Other acts that fit this category are Vince Gill, Conway Twitty, George Jones, Dan Seals, Sheryl Crow, Kid Rock and the likes.
Koe Wetzel is a Red Dirt, Outlaw country artist.
Tyler Childers is an Outlaw Country artist.
Orville Peck is an outlaw folk country artist. Country was started as Americana/Folk music. Colter Wall, Charley Crockett, Mandy Barnett, Asleep At The Wheel, The War and Treaty, and others are like this. Hank Williams, Woody Guthrie, Gene Autry,Roy Rogers, Tex Ritter and others fit in this category.
Neo-Traditional artists on the list that you are dismissive are Koe Wetzel, Tyler Childers, Orville Peck, The Lost Bandoleros, Colter Wall, Jennie Seely, Charley Crockett, Mandy Barnett, Asleep At The Wheel (swing), The War and Treaty, Mac McAnnelly, Rosanne Cash, Catherine Britt (still showing up on the US charts), and Paul Brandt. Jon Pardi, Midland, George Strait, Randy Travis, Alan Jackson, Riley Green, Luke Combs, Aaron Watson, Randel King, Randy Rogers Band, and others are Neo-Traditionalists.
Jimmy Buffett just released new country material.
Mark Knopfler is on the Nashville scene since the 1990s. He have been releasing country albums with some Americana and country rock.
Norah Jones is Americana/folksy country sound.
Kasey Chambers had a big hit in the US with "Not Pretty Enough." She could come in and help as a duet partner in Nashville.
Average Joe artists are mostley Hick Hop artists like Colt Ford except for 3 artists. It could be more regular artists.
The Canadian artists along with the Australian artists do find themselves played on the Texas radio or the secondary radio stations. Colter Wall, Corb Lund, Kasey Chambers, Catherine Britt, The Reklaws, Darlinhurst, The Buckleys, The McClyments, Dallas Smith, O'Shea (now lives in Nashville), Brett Kissel (since he is friends with Brad Paisley), Dean Brody, The Washboard Union and others are the ones being played. The northern states that borders Canada would pick up on the Canadian artists.
The Christian artists that I listed are part of the Christian Country community with other artists like Oak Ridge Boys, Alan Jackson, Josh Turner, Ty Herndon, Randy Travis, Johnny Cash and others.
All these artists that I listed are country artists now, but part of the sub-genres of country music.
