Musgraves, Clark, Monroe dominate Annual Nashville Scene Critics’ Poll

kacey-musgravesMuch like they dominated the Country Universe lists, Nashville Scene’s 14th Annual Country Music Critics’ Poll finds Kacey Musgraves, Brandy Clark, and Ashley Monroe on top.

This year, six of our seven Country Universe writers voted in the poll, with Sam Gazdziak featuring heavily in the comments section!

Congratulations to Sam, and to all of the artists who did so well this year!

  1. Thanks for posting this poll. I would have had Brandy #1 for album and female vocalist. I’m disappointed that Maggie Rose has been totally ignored. At least she did get a great review on Roughstock for her new single “Looking Back Now” and Sam mentioned her in one of his comments.

    Commenter Jim Caliguri nails why I haven’t been able to embrace Americana music. “As for Americana, stop pushing artists that can’t sing. I’ve got a list longer than my arm of people who were highlighted this year (and in years past, go figure) who can’t carry a tune. When you open your mouth, you better be on key and not slurring your words, or I don’t care what you’re selling lyrically.
