1. Mat Kearney
    I saw him in concert in May and have been obsessed since. Amazing lyrics. Each album has its special flavor.
  2. Ben Rector
    His lyrics and voice make you cry a little. Beyond amazing on piano and guitar. You will fall prey to his live performances on YouTube.
  3. Judah & the Lion
    I heard these guys when they opened for Mat Kearney. I've never heard another band with quite their sound. Banjos. Man buns. Folk-pop. Awesomeness.
