Billboard has named Taylor Swift as the "Top Country Artist of 2011."  Is it a surprise to you?  Not to me!  Taylor Swift is one of the biggest crossover artists country music has and she is a huge reason for why the genre is so popular right now.  Taylor's songs have been at the top of the charts and her "Speak Now" tour was off the hook (from what I hear), with all of the guest appearances.  Coming in 2nd to Taylor on Billboard's Top 10 Country Artist of 2011 list.....#2- Jason Aldean
