Our Favorite Albums of 2020

Didn’t manage to get to everything this year, despite being at home doing nothing for a good deal of the time. Oh well, I’ll try again in 2021. I did hear a lot of music from different genres. Included in the list below you’ll find everything from rock to rap to bluegrass to pop to country to soul and maybe some other things as well. It’s nice to have a bit of variety, so I’m glad I was able to hear records from all over the musical map.

Check out the list and if anything catches your ear, by all means support the artists and buy an album if you can. After 9 months of not touring, I’m sure they’d appreciate the gesture and the cash.
