Today WYRK held it's inaugural WYRK Fantasy Country Draft.  It was only 5 rounds long so obviously some big name stars went undrafted.

The objective was pretty easy.  Put together a team of 5 country stars from any decade with the most star power by picking one at a time in fantasy football draft style.

At least...it sounds easy.  Then you try it.

While it would be simple to put together a team of your five favorite stars, when someone else can pick from that same pool and steal one of your favorites before you get to them, it becomes quite a bit trickier.

And because there were only 5 rounds, there were some huge names that didn't get picked.  It's not that they aren't big stars, it's just that at the time, (whether it was for strategy or another reason) they weren't the best available on the board.

Don't worry...we are scratching our heads a little on some of these too.  How did they make it through?

So who was I surprised about not making the list?  Stars like:

  • Willie Nelson
  • Blake Shelton
  • Jason Aldean
  • Florida Georgia Line
  • Dan + Shay
  • Dierks Bentley
  • The Brothers Osborne (They would have been my 6th round choice)
  • Toby Keith

 

It was more challenging than any of us thought.  But it was fun!  Who would you put on your team?
