As we have said previously, 2013 has been a very diverse year for country music.
The year had many great album releases from big names in country music like George Strait, Taylor Swift and Blake Shelton. The year also made way for some great new country music hopefuls like Kacey Musgraves, Thomas Rhett, Ashley Monroe and Brett Eldredge. There were big comebacks from those we’ve missed like Tim McGraw and Gary Allan. There were also some new sounds and styles explored by Keith Urban. All of these are held together by stellar songwriting and musical risks and the eclectic sound that has become modern country music.
