If there was a bracket for a Sweet 16 in country music who would be the top seeds? Based on what happened in 2016 My top seeds in the Sweet 16 would be Thomas Rhett in the Male bracket. Florida Georgia Line in the Group/Duo bracket. Carrie Underwood would be tops in the Female bracket and LoCash would be number one in the New Artist bracket. Number two seeds would be Luke Bryan, Old Dominion, Kelsea Ballerini and Granger Smith. Number threes Jason Aldean, Zac Brown Band, Maren Morris and Chris Lane. The Fours Blake Shelton, Dan + Shay, Miranda Lambert and William Michael Morgan. Just like the big tournament there are the ones that did not make it like Tim McGraw, Cole Swindell, Dierks Bentley, Lauren Alaina, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley and Chris Stapleton but is he new anymore? Maybe they have to play in to make the tournament. This Sweet 16 is based on 2016. It would be hard to figure out artist of all time. The top seeds would probably be George Strait, Garth Brooks, George Jones and…..
