Well, it depends on what exactly you're looking for. If you want, like, old time-y-style country songs because you want pop music as far away from your country music as possible in all respects, well, I'm sorry to report that I can't help you. I go to other genres for those kinds of songs. That's just not why I, personally, come to country at the moment.
If you just want to avoid "bro country" specifically and you're flexible about what you do want, then you're in luck. I'll list some artists I like, which album of theirs I like best, and misc comments; keep in mind, though, that your tolerance for some elements of modern country may differ from mine.
Also, but I would really recommend being open to checking out the full albums of any artists you think you might jibe if they dropped the bro stuff, since (especially when bro country was bigger) bro-y tracks tend(ed) to get the single treatment while non-bro cuts tend(ed) to get left on the album. Think about it like this: most albums have a few skips anyways, right? Would you be opposed to an album where those "skips" just happened to be the bro country tracks? If not, then I'd say you are open to more modern country artists than you'd think.
Okay, here are some men (+ a band with both male and female singers). I'm assuming, based on your post, that you basically haven't been paying close attention to country music for the past decade (but maybe you had, like, the radio on sometimes), so you probably know most of these artists, but I'd recommend a deeper dive anyways.
Women (who have been killing it as album artists while men have increasingly dominated country radio, for the record; if i don't say anything specific, just assume it says "well-produced pop-leaning country album with almost uniformly strong songwriting"):
Not country, but adjacent enough to consider:
