Bäst 2019 enligt Tom Skjeklesæther

Top 10+10

1. Dee White- Southern Gentleman (Easy Eye Sound)
- Produsentene, Dan Auerbach og David Fergusson, kaller Dee White for «Boy Orbison». Knapt 20 år gamle White har stemmen, sangene og den beste produksjonen som kommer fra det moderne Nashville.
2. Paul Cauthen- Room 41 (Velvet Rose Records/ Lightning Rod records)
- Mens vi er i gang med klengenavn, Paul Cauthen kan gjerne kalles «Waylon Pavarotti». Gotisk outlaw country soul.
3. David Ritchard - Brobrännaren (Rootsy Music)
- Svenske David Ritchard knocket meg de to gangene jeg rakk å se ham i sommer. I januar tar han med seg seg de oppsiktsvekkende sangene sine til «Interstate 20» i Oslo.
4. Jørund Vålandsmyr & Menigheten- Til dere som er lykkelige (Rootsy Music)
- Vålandsmyr tilhører førstedivisjonen av norske sangere; Flaata, Høyem & Harket. Her finner han opp «Black Americana», på norsk.
5. Tyler Childers- Country Squire (RCA/ Sony Music)
- Childers sanger er sykt fengende, dette er den mest spilte plata på Siste Reis i Halden i år. I januar er han på «Interstate 20» i Oslo.
6.  Yola- Walk Through Fire(Easy Eye Sound)
- Årets store gjennombrudd i americana-verdenen. Velfortjent.
7. Michael Kiwanuka- Kiwanuka (Polydor)
- Kiwanuka lager stadig mer ambisiøs og politisk musikk. Marvin Gaye og Jimi Hendrix følger med.
8. Son Volt- Union (Transmit Sound/ Thirty Tigers)
- Jay Farrar sier det som det er, USA går til helvete under Trump.
9. The Dream Syndicate- These Times (Anti-)
- Steve Wynn makter å tilføre sin patenterte Paisley-rock et nytt fresht element uten å tape egenarten av syne. Deres beste album.
10. Tyler Ramsey- For the Morning (Fantasy)
- Dette er årets «dark horse», rett og slett tidligere gitarist i Band of Horses. Et must for alle som liker Israel Nash.
