Kevin John Coyne from 'Country Universe writes.....Quarantines and working from home made discovering music easier than ever in 2020, so much so that forty albums were embraced by Country Universe as being among the year's best.

With women being constantly sidelined by radio, 2020 was all about female artists removing the shackles of genre expectations.  Aubrie Sellers delivered a rocking country album that is loose in form but tight in focus, as she explores anxiety on "Worried Mind" and flips Nashville the bird on her way to LA ("One Town's Trash.")

'Country Universe's Jonathan Keefe selects 'Bettye LaVette - Blackbirds' as one of his Best Albums of 2020 and writes;

As ever, Bettye LaVette doesn't interpret songs so much as she possesses them, and Blackbirds finds the inimitable vocalist imposing her will on a particularly well-chosen batch of songs.
