    Lots of stuff I love on here, even some of the records that I didn't put on my list. But I missed that Kina Grannis album!

    Yeah, ranking order is probably good. Though, you can bump Heather Morgan up to around Adam Hood/Dierks Bentley on the list. There's a song on that one with Lori McKenna.
  17. VanderlyleCrybaby


    I just came here to say I'm so happy to see Care for Me by Saba on your list @Jason Tate . Truly underrated (and my number 1 album of 2018). :clap::clap::clap:

    Honestly I only heard about the Grannis one because I follower her on various social media. She's one like Mree where I feel like if I don't stay vigilant I'll lose track of them. The album is lovely though

    And I'll probably try and play catch up on a few of these over the course of January. I liked that Tasjan album a lot, too. Just didn't quite make my top tier.

    Yeah, I’ve got a few artists like that for sure.

    And I get it! It’s hard for stuff to sneak into your list at the end of the year as is. Glad you liked that album though.

    I felt okay with my list, but this Petal album is making me question it.

    What an album. What a voice.

    SAME! I saw the album on a random list not on this site and gave it a try and said “hmmm yeah this is cool.” And then just kept coming back and back and back and it clicked.
