Best Americana Albums of 2013

As a music writer, it occurred to me the other day that very often we as writers tell you, our dear readers, what to listen to and what we think you might like. We never really give you a chance to tell us.

In that spirit, let us take a look at the 2014 version of the Grammy Awards. Over the next week, I will post a series of Grammy nominees in a specific category and ask you to vote for your selection.

In this first round of voting, we take a look at the Best Americana Album category. In looking at the five albums, I’m glad I am asking you to vote. I’d have a tough time picking just one off of this list.

Each album is listed, along with a YouTube video of a song off of that album. Ready? Here we go:
