Rolling Stone magazine has published a list of

“The 26 Albums of 2014 You Probably Didn’t But Really Should Hear”

 

It’s a good list of new ‘country’ (the magazine’s term, not mine) releases.  I’ve got a few of them and they are all gems.  Interestingly there is a high proportion of artists associated with the Americana Festival this September, either by way of appearing at the event in Nashville or nominated for an Americana 2014 Award.  The Festival has been astute in its selections again, tapping into a rich vein of new music.
