It’s fair to say that the 1990s were a memorable time for country music fans. It was, after all, the decade that spawned numerous crossover superstars including LeAnn Rimes, Shania Twain and Tim McGraw. But while they continue to be household names, there are many other ’90s artists that now seem sadly forgotten about. Here’s a look at some.

DeMent was one of the biggest stars of the decade, thanks in part to her 1996 hit “Letter to Mom.” The powerful song, which told the story of a sex abuse survivor, ended up becoming quite the country anthem. However, in the following decades, DeMent was unable to replicate her success. So, while she released music as recently as 2015, she’s no longer as famous as she once was.
