There's no change towards the top of FTM's "best of" list but a lot of upheaval down below, with Arliss Nancy, Killer Mike and others jumping onto the list. There are also two big albums waiting in the wings: Jamey Johnson's Hank Cochran Tribute and Chris Knight's new release. Anyway, here's the top 10. Feel free to make any suggestions for great 2012 albums in the comments.

1. Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires - There is a Bomb in Gilead

2. Marty Stuart - Nashville, Vol. 1 Tear The Woodpile Down

3. Turnpike Troubadours - Goodbye Normal Street

4. Arliss Nancy - Simple Machines

5. Darrell Scott - Long Ride Home

6. Jason Eady - AM Country Heaven

7. Shooter Jennings - Family Man
