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.
