The top folk albums 2022 for this Holiday season seemed to be interesting ones for the music community due to divergent styles, such as albums by artists like Chris Stapleton, Tyler Childers, Hozier, Neil Young, and Brandi Carlile.
Of course, there’s Zach Bryan, whose five albums on the list are deeply rooted in his seven years of service in the U.S. Navy, life experiences in the small town of Oologah, Oklahoma, and a great deal of pain after an apparent heartbreak.
Meanwhile, many resonated with Stapleton’s Traveller and Starting Over – which are a combination of a family-focused tearjerker, dreamy rural landscapes, and various references to hard liquor. Childers’ Purgatory, Can I Take My Hounds To Heaven, and Country Squire are also truly out of the ordinary.
