Springsteen, Dylan & Paul Simon top my list, followed by Willie Nelson, CCR, Lucinda Williams & Emmylou Harris. More into lyrics than the band sound. Steely Dan, Stones, The Band. Van Morrison, Fleetwood Mac, Motown, Janis, Bob Marley, Warren Zevon, Tom Waits (not so much his latest stuff),outlaw country, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson (his songs he cant sing worth a damn),Grateful Dead, Eva Cassidy, Bonnie Raitt, Etta James, Allman Brothers. Two singer songwriters you need to check out if you haven't Tom Russel & Dave Alvin. Guy Clark worth a listen. Chris Stapleton. Guess you can sum it up with singer/songwriter is my favorite genre but with an eclectic group of other stuff. I'm 71. Too old for rap & hip-hop. To me it basically sucks but to each his own.
