- It was difficult to rank the bottom 6 or 7 since most of the year I listened to the top 3 or, especially Lydia Lovelace (I heard her song in Earthfare the other day!). So, I put in the top 7 those that I didn't need to write in at the WNCW poll with write ins for the bottom 3.
- Sarah Borges was released on December 10, 2013 so it didn't make last year's list.
- I also bought Wilco (Rare Tracks) and Shelby Lynne (I Am Shelby Lynne, which is a rerelease with a few new songs). Both are great.
- Here is a link to last year's list.
What did I miss (besides Sturgill Simpson)?
