LoneStarMusicMagazine.com wants to know: What were YOUR favorite Americana, Texas, and/or Red Dirt music albums of the year? We’ve taken the liberty of rounding up 100 eligible contenders — from best-sellers and chart-toppers from some of the biggest names in the genre to noteworthy releases by scrappy underdogs, legends, proud independents and buzz-building up-and-comers. All you have to do is scroll through our gallery and pick your favorites. The preffered number is 10, but if you somehow can’t find 10 albums here you genuinely loved, pick 5. Can’t quite narrow it down to just 10? Pick 15. And if you’re so inclined, you can pick ’em again every day (once a day) from now until midnight on New Year’s Eve. We’re all just having fun here, so we’re not gonna get all rules-y on you; just make sure you click “Save Votes” each time you’re finished with all your picks. Plus, if you register with your email address (not required), you will be entered in a drawing for one of three prizes: two $50 gift certificates (to be used at either LoneStarMusic.com or at Superfly’s Lone Star Music Emporium in San Marcos, Texas), and your pick of any 10 albums (on CD) from our list of 100.
Got it? Then get to it!
