Vote for Your Favorite Roots Music Albums of 2023 in No Depression’s Readers Poll
December is a season of traditions, and we’ve got a few of our own here at No Depression. One of our favorites is to take some time at the end of every year to look back and appreciate all the good music that’s flowed into our ears. But the best way to talk about music is, of course, with friends, and that’s where you come in.
We want to know what roots music albums stayed in heavy rotation in your speakers and headphones this year. Click the link below for a ballot where you can tell us your 10 favorite roots music albums released in 2023. You can choose from among the nearly 700 titles that came across our radar, or use the “Other” option at the bottom of the ballot to add something we missed. We’ll tally up all your votes to compile our year-end list of reader favorites, to be published in late December.
Keep in mind that we always encourage bold exploration in music listening, without regard to genre boundaries, but this list is intended to highlight roots music specifically, so that’s how we chose which albums got a spot on the ballot.
One more thing: While you’re reflecting on the year that’s been, we humbly ask you to consider how No Depression has fit into your life and your listening in 2023. If we’ve turned you on to something great, or spread the word on an artist you already love, a tip would be a great way to return the favor and ensure we can keep doing it into 2024! Donations can be made here, and all are appreciated.
