10 2019 Country Albums

One of the most overlooked genres on Sput and in general - Here are some of my favorite country albums of 2019. Outside of the top album, all are unranked.
1Orville Peck
Pony


Country music by the way of Ennio Morricone and the old-west, post-punk influences, and a modern non-heteronormative spin. A brilliant voice, superb melodies, and just the audicity of "Pony" makes it my favorite country release of 2019 so far.
2Tyler Childers
Country Squire


A modern honky-tonk country singer, with just enough fun to not overshadow the grit and enough grit to not make it sound disingenuous.
3Cat Clyde
Hunters Trance


Although musically she isn't anything to necessarily write home about, Cat Clyde has one of the best voices in modern country music. If she's able to fully embrace the darker side of the sound she hints at, she has potential for a genre classic in the future.
4Buffalo Wabs and the Price Hill Hustle
Stranger in the Alps


Good old fashion bluegrass that doesn't sound outdated. It sounds just as home in 2019 as it would have back in days of Spaghetti Westerns.
5Yola
Walk Through Fire


A British women of color has managed to make herself one of the most talked about names in Americana in 2019, which is no small feat. A powerful voice and a range of influences are the reason for that, with "Walk Through Fire" having enough sonic variance without straying too far from its roots.
6Joshua Ray Walker
Wish You Were Here


A country crooner done right. Doesn't reinvent the wheel, but has a pretty good go at steering it.
7William Tyler
Goes West


Post-Americana. Equally mellow and entrancing, a perfect sunrise album.
8Ian Noe
Between The Country


Throwback country. Music that sounds like it was recorded in sepia tone, a twangy folk that reeks of both nostalgia but also doesn't step away from discussing hard times. Definite Jason Isbell vibes, with some great guitar work throughout.
9Lula Wiles
What Will We Do


Another welcome addition to female driven, socially conscious country music bordering on the edge of bluegrass. Haunting lyrics and harmonies abound!
10Emily Scott Robinson
Traveling Mercies


Country-folk songs about America in all its glories. For fans of Kacey Musgraves, although definitely more on the folk side rather than pop. One of my favorites of the year and criminally overlooked.
