Editors’ Notes As much as it tips its hat to tradition, country music is always moving forward. This set highlights that next wave of newcomers, conversation starters, trailblazers, and risk-takers—names and tracks you might not have heard before but we figure you might as well get used to. Our editors are always rotating new stuff in, so if you hear something you like, add it to your library.
