2019 was a busy and tough year for me physically and musically. This website has evolved into  an even bigger project than I imagined, and I had to hire MORE help to combat the amount submissions I get in my email and the regular mail. HOLY COW I get a TON of great music and SOME not so great music, now I CANNOT SAY that some of these will NOT BE on my TOP 50 list YET, because I’m STILL picking my spots up.

Some of those albums land between the trash bin and the TOP 50 LIST OF 2019. So with that in mind Decided to make this list of good stuff I found in 2019 while rabbit hole binging OR found in my mailbox. Now people, THIS LIST is going to go FURTHER than YOUR typical music “scene” loves or what’s “popular” in the Underground or Red Dirt communities.

This list will cover Texas Music, Newgrass, Jamgrass, Roots Music, Outlaw Country, blah…blah…blah….HEY QUIT putting stuff into a box and check out this awesome music I found all over the place in 2019. There are so many Oeuvres from these artists, but that doesn’t mean I LOVE that particular artist as a whole. It’s difficult to articulate to someone whom doesn’t “get it”, but to those whom DO…this article is for YOU!
