It’s no secret that Webster Public Relations is blessed to work with some of the best-selling and most influential artists of all time. Collectively, our artists have sold hundreds of millions of records and Rolling Stones’ recent 100 Greatest Country Artists Of All Time chart proves it.
Webster PR’s client roster continues to tour year-around, record new music and entertain their loyal fan base, and can also be seen on such national TV series as Today, The Tonight Show, Fox & Friends and more.
“What an honor to have 16 artists that we have worked with in the Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Country Artists of All Time!,” exclaimed Webster Public Relations president Kirt Webster. “The heritage and history of Country music must never be forgotten and many on this list represent decades of musicians who have come and gone, yet their music and influence still is recognized today. As a fan – which we all are at heart – I grew up enamored with all of the artists listed in the Top 100, whether we represent them or not. What a blessing it was to represent George Jones, Johnny Cash, Ray Price, and The Texas Tornados (Doug Sahm) who may no longer be with us, but their music has continued to live on and influence many of today’s stars.”

According to Rolling Stone, for those who made the cut, they considered their lasting impact on the genre, their recorded output and even their legacy as an entertainer. Some of the contemporary artists they included – all of them already trailblazers – also benefited from their speculation that their best work may in fact be ahead of them. But in the end, the common denominator for both legends and today’s stars was that they are all one-of-a-kind.
