The 1960s were a decade of transition in country music. Traditional country was still king, but more and more game-changing acts were starting to filter in. Loretta Lynn brought a controversial feminist lens to the genre; Johnny Cash took his act to Folsom Prison (and to San Quentin, too).

For every album of classic country standards released in the 1960s, there was an album that was starting to urge the genre in newer, bigger directions. The combination of the two means that some of country's most beloved and enduring albums were produced during the decade.

From the traditional to the groundbreaking, below are The Boot's picks for the Top 10 country albums of the 1960s. Scroll through to find your favorite.
