Who is the most popular country music artist right now? Is it Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan...?

According to a new study by Edison Research, Carrie is currently the favorite country music singer among young people ages 12-24 who like country music. She's also the most popular country artist overall among people 12-24.

We aren't surprised by the study's results. Carrie was on top of her game in 2013 with the new Sunday Night Football theme song, hit songs, a banging tour and her debut in The Sound of Music. Although, it should be noted that this particular study was done before Sound of Music aired.

Following behind the country queen on the popular list are country hunks Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton and Tim McGraw, all top favorites among country music listeners. The study also revealed that young country music fans have diverse tastes and prefer veteran Tim McGraw AND newcomer Luke.

The full study will be revealed on February 19. Click here for more details.

Are you surprised that Carrie's the most popular country music artist out there among young adults?
