Top 30 Albums of 2015: 3/4 Report

Here's my 3/4 of 2015 Favorite Albums list. I'm going to attempt to do a composite among FTM's regular contributors (Matthew, Kelcy, Jeremy, Kevin, and myself) and hopefully have our first team-voted official list (at least a top 10) at the end of December, so this is just a 20% slice here. -Trailer

2. Whitey Morgan - Sonic Ranch

29. The Deslondes - s/t

30. Dwight Yoakam - Second Hand Heart

I haven't heard these enough yet to rank them: Jason Boland and the Stragglers - Squelch, Hailey Whitters - Black Sheep, The Yawpers - American Man, Corb Lund - Things That Can't Be Undone, Don Henley - Cass County, Gretchen Peters - Blackbirds.


  1. Have you heard Leon Bridges- Coming Home? After seeing at least one soul artist on here I thought I might throw that name out there. In no way am I being one of those if you don't agree with my list your list is stupid kind of guys.

  2. I like Leon's album a lot. It's a little outside my top 30 at the moment though. Could rise, could fall. There's so much new music this year, it's hard to get a handle on it all.

  3. D.L. Marble "Hard to Quit" should be somewhere between Ray Wylie Hubbard and Turnpike... if you haven't heard you should. Corb Lunds new Record is amazing, and so is Dale Watsons.
