No one knows country music better than the format's own stars, so CMT surveyed superstars like George Strait ,  Luke Bryan , Keith Urban , Taylor Swift and Blake Shelton to determine the top 40 most influential artists in country music's history. The results will be aired in a new feature, CMT All-Time Top 40: Artist's Choice, premiering this Saturday at 11 a.m. ET on CMT Hot 20 Countdown .

The results will be revealed one-by-one each week through December. Jason Aldean , Dierks Bentley , The Band Perry , Florida Georgia Line , Eric Church , Hunter Hayes , Lady Antebellum , Darius Rucker and Jake Owen are among the other stars who voted in the countdown.
