Without fail every year I leave off my Favourites list one of my favourites. This year it was Ray Wylie Hubbard whose The Grifter’s Hymnal definitely deserved its place in the original post. Sorry, Ray. ;-(
Here are some others .....
Dr John came up with his best album in years, Locked Down.
Gregory Porter seems to have really broken through with his second album, Be Good.
"Birmingham" - Shovels & Rope. I haven't heard the album this is off yet (though it made a lot of year end lists) but I do love this song.
