Top 5 Americana, Alt-Country, Bluegrass and Folk Albums of 2017 (So Far)

It’s hard to pick the best album in a group of genres — Americana, alt-country, bluegrass and folk — that┬ánot only can be hard to define, but also keep expanding. It’s even harder when the artists in those genres are making such good music.

The year 2017 has been a big one for the Americana, alt-country, bluegrass and folk genres. Newcomers have┬áproduced music beyond their years, and genre staples have taken their music in a new direction. In fact, it’s been such a crazy year that this list includes an album that only came out on Friday (June 16).

Do you think that record deserves its spot? What about the other four albums on this list? Check out the photo gallery above to see The Boot’s Top 5 Americana, alt-country, bluegrass and folk albums of 2017 (so far) — then, weigh in with your thoughts in the comments section below!
