So Long 2015, It’s Been Good to Know Ya
As we bound toward another trip around the sun, it’s customary in our world to take a look back on the music that moved us most in the year behind us. So, we asked you – our readers – to guide the way. Nearly 800 of you responded (almost three times the number who responded last year), contributing your tastes to help us land on 50 of the finest roots music albums of 2015. Surprising almost nobody, Jason Isbell’s Something More Than Free headed the pack with a considerable lead, but Chris Stapleton, James McMurtry, and Dave Rawlings Machine were right behind. Take a look at your Top 50, or just scroll through for some looks in the rearview. Happy new year!
