Best Albums of 2013

I found it easy to compile this year's list of Best Albums. These 20 really stood out among all the others. Not to say there wasn't plenty of great albums worthy of consideration, just that these choices (for me) were a noticeable notch above the rest.

With that being said, it was extremely difficult to put them in order. The top 4 choices were no-brainers, but the others I constantly kept changing their place of the list. The day of the show I was still making minor adjustments. I think if you check back in a week I'd probably move half of everything around again.

I hope you enjoyed 2013's Americana music as much as I did. The 2014 are already coming in, and from what I'm hearing, it's starting off to be a another great year in music.
