2012 Nashville Scene Critics Poll

2012 Nashville Scene Critics Poll is up.  No direct link to my ballot, so I listed it below.  My names does appear below the main page.

2012 Nashville Scene Poll

Stunned that neither of Todd Snider's 2 CD's got into the Top 30.  At least the Village Voice had it at #40 and Rolling Stone at #47.

This was my ballot for Albums/Singles:
1.  Todd Snider - Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables
2.  Chris Knight - Little Victories 
3.  Dwight Yoakam - 3 Pears
4.  Iris Dement  - Sing the Delta  
5.  Jamey Johnson - Living for A Song: Tribute to Hank Cochran 
6.  Time Jumpers - s/t
7.  Kin - Songs by Mary Karr & Rodney Crowell
8.  Kasey Chambers & Shane Nicholson - Wreck & Ruin 
9.  Todd Snider - Time as We Know It: Songs of Jerry Jeff Walker
10. Patterson Hood - Heat Lightning Rumbles In the Distant

(Given a couple more weeks to ponder, I would have replaced #10's Patterson Hood with This One's For Him: Tribute to Guy Clark.  And #9's Todd Snider with Chelle Rose's Ghost of Browder Holler.  Such is the World of trying to keep up with everything released in one year)
Top 10 Singles
1.   Eric Church - Springsteen 
2.  Kathleen Edwards - Change The Sheets
3.  Taylor Swift - We Are Never Ever 
4.  Little Big Town - Tornado
5.  Iris Dement - Night I Learned Not To Pray 
6.  Todd Snider - In The Beginning
7.  Little Big Town - Pontoon
8. Willie Nelson, etc.  - Roll Me Up
