As the producer of two live radio shows, I have access to hundreds of records every year that are submitted for airplay consideration. There are also hundreds that I find on my own by searching music sites and reading press releases.
That all leads to me doing my annual end of year lists. This is the FIRST of seven that will be coming based on particular genres that I cover on the shows and reviews.
These are what I consider to be the TOP 30 in the genres of Country, Americana, and Bluegrass! Enjoy!
