62 albums from 2016 not to miss

Although 2016 was a rough year on many fronts, women in Americana, roots, folk and alternative country music were killin’ it. Some of the usual suspects dropped albums; we got great records from the current strong guard; and 2016 offered the fortune of getting introduced to several amazing new talents.

Womenicana put together this list of records you want to be sure not to miss from 2016. Share any we missed, so we can spread the love and music!
