The Best of 2015

Posted on January 15, 2016 at 8:34 PM
THE BEST OF 2015
I surely must be the the world's worst blogger. One post a year is pretty pathetic. Note to self: blog more in 2016.

Anyway it's that time of year again - time to make  list of my favourite releases of the past year. For the last two shows Tom the Teacher (ret.) and I have played tracks from our favourites release of 2015 on our  8th Annual Review of the Year That  Was Parts 1 & 2 shows. 

Tom introduced me to some artists I was unaware and whose music I will investigate further and here are his pick of the year:

 Top 10 2015 - Tom the Teacher (ret.) 
 1. Willie Nelson / Merle Haggard - Django & Jimmie 
 2. Dale Watson - Call Me Insane 
 3. Chris Stapleton - Traveler
 4. Wade Davis - 15 Years in A 10 Year Town
 5. Sarah Gayle Meech - Tennessee Love Song
 6. Billy Dee  - For Sale
 7. Max Stalling - Banquet
 8. Chuck Hawthorne - Silver Line
 9. Don Henley - Cass County
10. Amanda Cevallos - Got Me Where You Want Me

Cosmic Cowboy Cafe Album Of The Year 2015
Chuck Hawthorne - Silver Line
Charlie Roth sent me a video of  the song "Post 2 Gate" written in the basement of one of Saddam Hussein's palaces in Baghdad by a marine with 22 yrs service who gave up his gun for a guitar. A chance meeting with Ray Bonneville at an airport led him to produce Chuck Hawthorne's debut album and bring Gurl Morlix and Eliza Gilkyson to the record.

 #2 Sarah Gayle Meech - Tennessee Love Song
 #3 Amanda Cevallos - Got Me Where You Want Me
These are the albums that I probably played the most during the year, both by "Outlaw" gals. Sarah Gayle was the 2015 Ameripolitan Music Awards Best Female Outlaw and Amanda was unlucky not have been nominated  that category in the 
2016 awards.

And of course Dale Watson - Call Me Insane. Just another superb set of songs like we come to  expect from Mr Ameripolitan. The quality and consistency of his musical output  is staggering, not to mention his great stage performances.

2015 was  good year for singer-songwriters, apart from Chuck Hawthorne, The Two Toms, Pacheco and Russell gave us The Rose Of Roscrae and Boomtown respectively. These guys never disappoint. And Minnesotan Charlie Roth delivered another gem with Oh My Stars.

2015 was also the year of the tribute album:
Peter Cooper - Depot Light (Eric Taylor)
The Rizdales - Blue Ain't The Word (Ray Price)
Brennen Leigh - Sings Lefty Frizzle
Asleep At The Wheel - Still The King (Bob Wills)

We had some great kickers country from:
Dallas Moore (Band) - Dark Horse Rider
Whitey Morgan & The 78's - Sonic Ranch
Truckstop Troubadours - Untie The Horses

Honky Tonk music was well served by Billy Dee's long awaited For Sale sign.
Justin Trevino gave us Sings Johnny Bush and Live At The London Dance Hall

 I also really liked Nouveaux Honkies' release Blues For Country for the variety of songs on it and its sheer listenability.

So there you have it - the list of the Best Of 2015 when you're not having a list !

Of course there was so much more great music from 2015 that I haven't listed here.
