    You say poll, so I don't know if we're supposed to pick from yours or come up with our own. Of yours, Stevie Nicks.

    My own, off the top of my head:

    Trisha Yearwood
    Stevie Nicks
    Madonna
    Reba, her earlier stuff

    I think I got carried away! I probably missed quite a few. As you can see I'm kinda diverse when it comes to music.
    If you have never heard Uma (Yma) Suma, check this out for style and purity; YouTube - Yma Sumac - Montana: recital URSS 1961 Be prepared to be taken to another place!

    That's a tough list to make.

    A lot of who have already been listed are great. I'm glad I'm not seeing any of the studio star wanna-be's listed. At least that I see/recognize so far.

    Allison Krause is awesome. Her work with Robert Plant as of late was a bizarre match, but what a pair!!!!

    You can't forget DFW local, Leann Rimes. She's go that classic voice. It was a shame she had to fade into the shadows just as she was making it big over legal crap.

    Jennifer Nettles is another I really like.
    Natalie Manes as well. Man, what pipes...
    Can't forget Wynonna Judd either.

    Going back a ways but not listed yet but has to be included as an absolute queen, well maybe king (:happy0001:, that was bad) of vocal talent, KD Lang.

    How about some newer...although I'm not a fan of the adolescent genre', Hayley Williams has some incredible vocal talent.

    She's been mentioned but I'll say it again, Janis Joplin. Everyone has probably seen some of her hay-day concert footage and of course recordings, but if you've ever seen real early stuff, pre-acid, she was incredible. She sang from every fiber in her body. I don't know how 1 person could make it through 1 song like she'd do, and still be standing. She'd finish and barely be able to walk off stage, yet be smiling very humbly and almost embaressed...

    I could sit here for hours listing female artists as I think back over the years.....
