The American Music Award for Favorite Country Female Artist (now titled Favorite Female Artist - Country) has been awarded since 1974.

Years reflect the year in which the American Music Awards were presented, for works released in the previous year (until 2003 onward when awards were handed out on November of the same year).

The all-time winner in this category is Reba McEntire with ten ('88', '89, '90, '91, '92, '93, '94, '95, '98, '04) wins stretching across three decades. McEntire was also the first woman to win the award 8 years in a row.

Second place belongs to Barbara Mandrell ('81, '82, '83, '84, '85, '87) and Taylor Swift ('08, '09, '10, '11, '12, '13), who both won the award six times.

Tied in third place are Faith Hill ('01, '02, '03, and '06), Shania Twain ('96, '97, '99, and '00), and Carrie Underwood ('07, '14, '15, and '16), who have each won 4 times, respectively.

Crystal Gayle ('79, '80, and '86) has won three times.
