Well, here we are at the last day of November. We about to enter the final month of 2018. As a friend likes to point out, the calendar year is arbitrary and has been/is different era to era, culture to culture. Regardless, it is as good a time as any to take stock. What's working, what's not, what could be better, and where to set sights for the year ahead. I'll be focusing on all that in December, all while continuing to bring new music to light and to reflect on the great music of 2018.
I am working on making a decision about the E2TG Artists and Bands of the Year. As in the last two years, my thought is to have two winners in each category. Band and Artist of the Year Nashville and Band and Artist of the Year (Non-Nashville). Truthfully, every time I think I've settled on a list, I remember another artist who is kicking butt. It's not going to be an easy decision, but do know - everyone I write about is a winner in my book. Plus, despite rumors to the contrary, E2TG awards to not include a cash prize or anything like that.
We have a pretty nifty shuffle of songs to close out the month. Let's get to it!
