There was an awful lot of good music this year.  More than I remember in recent years past, actually.  It was hard for me to whittle down this shortlist.  There are a LOT of great albums that I didn’t include – most of them simply because I haven’t been able to spend enough time with them.

Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives – Way Out West [Superlatone]
Sarah Shook & the Disarmers – Sidelong [Bloodshot]
