Purely subjective but for what it’s worth my top six, in order are:

1. Bob Dylan - Rough And Rowdy Ways

2. Jason Isbell - Reunions

3. Dion - Blues With Friends

4. Neil Young - Homegrown

5. Lucinda Williams - Good Souls, Better Angels

6. Steve Earl - Ghosts Of West Virginia

 

Over to you..........

Not in any order

1, Jason Isbell - Reunions

2. Ashley McBryde - Never Will

3. Deacon Blue - City Of Love

4. Butch Walker - American Love Story

5. Margo Price - That's How Rumours Get Started

6. The Shires - Good Years

I like Dylan too but not much use in the car. Too slow

I definitely second two choices named above; Reunions and City Of Love.

I would add:

And It's Still Alright by Nathaniel Rateliff

Bespoke Songs Vol. 1 by James Grant.

I need to spend more time with the Dylan.

I'll certainly go with those two, and add Gretchen Peter's album of Mickey Newbury covers.

If the tracks I've heard so far are typical of the forthcoming Mary Chapin Carpenter album, then that should be a goodie.

For what it’s worth, right now:

1. Lucinda Williams - Good Souls, Better Angels

2. Brian Fallon - Local Honey

3. Nathaniel Rateliff - And It’s Still Alright

4. Drive-By Truckers - The Unraveling

5. Jason Isbell - Reunions

Coincidentally vinyl Dylan arrived today, but although I’ve been streaming it since release it’s a long term project. Still soaking it up.  
Need to find time to listen to new Pretenders & Jarvis Cocker releases, and Courtney Marie Andrews on the horizon. Been a good year for new releases, some compensation for the lack of live music I suppose

Not yet heard GP's. And Chapin never puts a foot wrong, so yeah, really looking forward to that one.

Been meaning to grab a copy but haven't got round to it yet.

I mentioned online, maybe here, that it's not the MM of Lone Justice. It's very wordy, with strings on every track. Barely any guitar, and she sings in a falsetto very often.

It's a brave album. For me, it's album of the year.

This is a good few weeks for the ladies with terrific albums in the last two weeks from Courtney Marie Andrews and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

Next Friday Kate (Anna) Rusby releases what promises to be a hugely enjoyable covers album.

And the superb Folklore from Taylor Swift.
