It's that 'TIME' of year! Santa Claus isn't the only one making a list and checking it twice -- Brad Paisley's doing the same! As all of us reflect on the year that was 2009, country fans have had the chance to check out The Boot's list of the Top Country Albums of 2009.

And TIME magazine, which has just published their annual "Top 10 of Everything," has chosen a familiar CD as their Top Album of the Year: Brad's 'American Saturday Night.'

Of the disc, TIME says, "Country's most underrated star capped a decade-long run of crisp, self-penned hits with his most complete album yet."

Other country albums on TIME's multi-genre list: Miranda Lambert's 'Revolution' (which was our No. 2 pick), lands at No. 4, and the Avett Brothers' melodic 'I and Love and You,' was their No. 9 pick. Miranda also placed her hit, 'White Liar' at No. 7 on TIME's Best Songs of 2009 list.
