Country Stars Who’ve Written Songs for Pop Stars

Country music has long been known for its ability to tell a story and hit you right in the heartstrings.

While it’s also a divisive genre that some will quickly dismiss, county artists have proven that it’s more than just the stereotype of cowboy hats, riding tractors and being on the ranch: Taylor Swift, Kacey Musgraves and Shania Twain have proven that country songs can crossover into the pop realm, and acts including Lady Antebellum and The Band Perry have churned out tunes that will get even the biggest of skeptics to reconsider.

It’s not too surprising to hear that these ace songwriters have been tapped by pop stars for material. But which country stars have actually written songs for pop singers? We put together a list that include some big names — and others who you should keep your eyes on. Find out more about these country songwriters in the gallery above.
