The Boot's 2019 Artists to Watch roster is jam-packed with talent that spans the ever-expanding spectrum of country, folk, Americana and bluegrass music. From Nora Collins' ethereal vocals to Mitchell Tenpenny's gritty, rock-driven twang, these emerging artists have a little bit of everything.

Some of The Boot's 2019 Artists to Watch have been writing songs that you know and love for years; others are brand-new talents that have hit the ground running. However you like your music -- a little bit on the poppy side, or something more alt-folkish -- this list has you covered.

It's true that 2019 could be the year for any number of up-and-coming artists -- but The Boot staff is placing bets on these men, women and groups. Check out the Spotify playlist below for a sampling of what the future of our favorite genres looks like, courtesy of our favorite up-and-comers.
