Liz’s List: 2018 Top Ten Albums … Plus One

Reviews

I am what you might call an “avid,” “obsessive,” or perhaps borderline “rabid,” lifelong music fan. As a recent addition to the Americana Highways team, I was invited to share my top albums of 2018.  Although I’ve only made a few posts here so far, I have been absorbing albums all year long. Here’s my list, it’s “Top Ten … Plus One,” (you know how that goes) in alphabetical order because I love them all equally.  There’s a playlist at the bottom with my favorite song from each album.  Let me know in the comments section what you think!
