AUK’s top 10 americana albums ever: The Readers’ Poll nominations – vote now!

We know from the feedback that we’ve received from our readers just how much you’ve enjoyed our personal top 10’s over the past months culminating in the revealing of our top overall 10. However, it has come to our notice that some of you may, shock horror, differ with us and have other suggestions as to what should have been included. Where were Steve Earle and The Jayhawks? Wrong Neil Young album! Not enough female artists! Too many old country-rock albums! Where are the modern artists? These are just some of the observations and questions that readers have raised. On the other hand, we’ve received numerous endorsements of our choices too, so many of you also seem broadly happy with our top 10.

Here is your chance to confirm what we got right and to correct what we got wrong. Yes, it’s the readers poll of the ‘top 10 americana albums ever’ and it works like this:

Stage 1 – Readers can nominate up to three albums that they would consider to be the best ever.

Stage 2 – We will draw up a shortlist from your nominations and invite you to vote again from that list.

Stage 3 – We will publish the results of the AUK readers top 10 americana albums ever.

Nominate your top 3 now!

To nominate your top three, simply fill them in here and we will do the rest. Closing date is this Sunday (28th March 2021).

Nb – Apologies if you’re having trouble voting, we are getting votes through fine from most readers but if you’re not able to vote using the form, you can email your choices to clint.west@americana-uk.com Apologies for any inconvenience.

    • Just tested it Jerry and it seems OK, we are getting votes through from readers. Maybe try from a different device?

  1. No problems but there are so many contenders,…I feel like I have let down my children..

  3. I couldn’t pick just three.

    By way of a contrast here’s an article in a similar vein from No Depression. Just shows the diversity in the genre, and the difficulty in agreeing what’s ‘the best’.
