1. THE NASHVILLE SOUND by JASON ISBELL
*BEST SONG OF THE YEAR*
*BEST AMERICANA ALBUM OF THE YEAR*
“Hope the High Road…” is my absolute favorite song of the year. I literally cry like a bitch every time I hear it.
And the rest of this album is also fantastic. Year after year, Isbell churns out intensely personal, universally touching songs about what it means to be a real man with real feelings, sharing the real world with other people.
