Top 10 Country Albums of 2014

2014 was a big year for country music. Garth Brooks made an official comeback, Taylor Swift bailed for pop, Bro-Country hit the big time, and some of the best music in many years hit the airwaves and digital retailers. Here is CMTT’s picks for the top albums released in 2014. Love ‘em or hate ‘em.

brad paisley

10. Moonshine in the Trunk: Brad Paisley – Brad Paisley keeps his sense of humor and his ability to craft a stunning story alive with this album. “River Bank” takes us all back to the basics of a good time while “Perfect Storm” shows his appreciation for the female. “Gone Green” is an ode to his bluegrass inspirations.

Blake Shelton

9. Bringing Back the Sunshine: Blake Shelton – Blake’s new album has been made great thanks to some lovely lady harmonies. Ashley Monroe and Blake create haunting harmony in “Lonely Tonight.”

miranda lambert platinum

8. Platinum: Miranda Lambert – Miranda’s sass is back, and ‘Platinum’ surprised many with a medley of not-so-radio friendly songs that speak volumes about who Miranda Lambert really is. She’s sticking to her guns and her own sound bringing an old time country twist to some girl power tunes.

Little Big Town

7.Pain Killer: Little Big Town – Little Big Town has proven that the summer belongs to them with their release of “Day Drinking.” The quartet has no bounds to their talents, creating a glorious and sassy album.

6. Sundown Heaven Town: Tim McGraw – Tim McGraw is more current than ever thanks to ‘Sundown Heaven Town.’ Tim managed to bring the memories of earlier days and finer moments to life in this new album. I’m calling it his best album to date. It feels so authentic to where Tim came from.

Lee Brice I Don't Dance

5. I Don’t Dance: Lee Brice – Who expected the singer of “Parking Lot Party” to come with the next wedding song. Lee proves that he is at his best when he’s singing with a purpose and from the heart.

Kacey Musgraves

4.Same Trailer Different Park: Kacey Musgraves – Not since Taylor Swift has country music seen such a unique wordsmith as Kacey Musgraves. She has a way of weaving lyrics on subject matter that pushes the country envelope yet wrapped in a country sound that sounds more like Loretta Lynn than Florida Georgia Line. Kacey has managed to weave nursery rhymes into pot-smokin’ and girl-kissing poetry.

Brantley Gilbert

3. Just As I Am: Brantley Gilbert – Brantley left it all on the line with ‘Just As I Am,’ cranking out sexy tunes like “Let it Ride” and “Bottoms Up” along with super sad “Lights of My Hometown” and “I’m Gone.”

Eric Church- The Outsiders

2. The Outsiders: Eric Church – Every album Eric Church makes, is full of pride and impeccable story telling. ‘The Outsiders’ is no exception. Eric has honed his own unique style of story telling with his signature rebellious flare.

dierks bentley Riser

1. Riser: Dierks Bentley – Dierks has brought his A-game with ‘Riser,’ his most personal record to date. Dierks lets it all out there, with songs like “I Hold On” and “Damn These Dreams.” His ever present party and fun-loving side is clear in “Drunk on a Plane” which took on a life of it’s own at his live shows.

Country music, a genre long known for its do-gooding & family-like bond, gathered together to help one of its own, Robin Majors, at Acme Feed & Seed in Nashville, TN. Majors, a beloved behind-the-scenes guy with 37+ years in the touring industry, was diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer and miraculously given a new liver in January of this year. The event last night was organized to raise money to help offset the astronomical and ongoing medical bills.

Hosted by SiriusXM’s Storme Warren, the show featured Kacey Musgraves, Jake Owen, Troy Gentry, Wade Hayes, Darryl Worley, David Adam Byrnes, Jim Quick, Ray Scott, Paulette Carlson, Brian Nutter, Mark Collie, Jon Berry, Henry Paul & others.

Majors, who is currently on the road with Kenny Chesney, is known for his wide smile and positive attitude on the road. He would like to thank MusicCares, The Grand Ole Opry Trust Fund and the Academy of Country Music for financial assistance through their respective programs and Vanderbilt University Medical Center for the excellent care he has received through this entire ordeal.

For those who unable to attend the benefit, there are two ways to make donations: Straight into the Robin Majors Gift of Life Fund, through Wells Fargo Private Bank, 3100 West End Ave, Ste 550, Nashville, TN, 37203. Attn: Danielle Bouharoun. Donations can also be made online here.
