    Travis Tritt vs. Billy Ray Cyrus

    In the early '90s, Travis dissed Billy Ray's famous "Achy Breaky Heart." Well, Billy didn't take that laying down. At the 1993 American Music Awards, while on stage accepting the award for Favorite Country single, the country star stated, "As far as I’m concerned, to those people who don’t like 'Achy Breaky Heart' ... here's a quarter, call someone who cares!" ("Here's a Quarter, Call Someone Who Cares" was Tritt’s Top 5 single from 1991). Burn!

    Dixie Chicks vs. Toby Keith

    When asked about Toby's "Courtesy of the Red White and Blue," Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines responded with "It's ignorant, and it makes country music sound ignorant." The two feuded sonically until Keith started using a photo of Maines with Saddam Hussein while on tour. That led to the infamous "F-U-T-K" t-shirt. Toby ultimately ended the feud.

    Eric Church vs. Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert

    During an interview, Eric Church gave his take on reality singing competition shows. He said "Honestly, if Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green f*****g turn around in a red chair, you got a deal? That's crazy. I don't know what would make an artist do that. You're not an artist." Well, that certainly ruffled Miranda Lambert's feathers. She spoke up and said "hanks Eric Church for saying I'm not a real artist. Or Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban." Eric then apologized and clarified what he meant.

    Zac Brown Band vs. Luke Bryan

    Zac Brown wasn't too fond of Luke Bryan's hit "That's My Kind of Night," and he didn't try to hide it either. Zac proclaimed that the song was "the worst song I've ever heard." He continued by saying, "There's songs out there on the radio right now that make me be ashamed to be even in the same format as some other artists." Lucky for Luke, his buddy Jason Aldean stuck up for him via an Instagram post that said, "To those people runnin' their mouths, trust me when I tell you that nobody gives a s*** what you think." Ouch!

    Gary Allan vs. Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood

    During an interview with Larry King, Gary Allan let it slip how he felt about superstars like Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood. He said the two were simply "pop artists making a living in the country genre." Those Swifties and Carrie Underwood fans were outraged, so Gary attempted to clarify in a Facebook post that said, "You used to be able to turn on the radio and you knew instantly it was a country station, just by listening to it. And now you've got to leave it there for a second to figure it out."
