15 Americana, Alt-Country and Folk Artists to Watch in 2016

If 2015 was any indication as to what’s in store for the ever-evolving worlds of Americana, alt-country and folk music in 2016, then we think it’s safe to say that this new year is going to be one for the history books.

With blizzards and bad weather (hopefully) in our rear-view mirrors, we now turn our attention to the true desire of our hearts: new music from both the artists we love and the artists we’ll soon fall in love with. We’re just one month into 2016, but the year is already filling us full of zeal to head out to the record stores.

Check out some of our picks for artists to watch out for this year, from legendary musicians to the best up-and-comers, and be sure to tell us who you think will steal 2016’s spotlight in the comments section below.
