As Iron Maiden once said in their cheerful classic ‘The Clairvoyant’, “as soon as you’re born you’re dying” and as we hurtle towards our graves at an ever-quickening pace, it will surprise no-one that here we are again with our annual readers poll in which we ask you to reflect on the last 12 months (well, 11) and choose your favourite americana, the stuff that’s resonated with you throughout the year, the stuff that you’ll still be talking about this time next year.
s ever, we are a UK based site so despite the inherent oxymoronic (is that a word?) nature of our raison d’etre, we are particularly keen to hear about the homegrown americana which you’ve enjoyed the most. Entries must be in by midnight on December 16th and we will announce the winners with great fanfare before Christmas. Oh and we’ll be sending one random voter something nice.
(Nb – if you spam the vote by repeatedly just voting for one artist in one category, we’ll discount those votes. Likewise if you vote for an artist who is nothing to do with americana we will also discount those. Apologies but some time ago, Robbie Williams would have been americana artist of the year without this rule – and hey, we are a broad church but not that broad). Happy voting!
Please vote in as many categories as you can so it genuinely represents you our dear readers.
