Happy New Year’s Eve, my friends! I hope you’re in the midst of a tremendous holiday season, ready to kiss this year goodbye and fully prepared for an incredibly successful 2017.

With the 2016 chapter of our lives nearly complete, I am ringing in the new year with my annual review of “the year in music.” Despite what we hear and read in the media regarding the state of the music industry, once again, I continue to stumble upon an excellent number of strong releases over the past 12 months.

So…without further adieu, I share with you now my “Top 10 Albums of 2016.” Hope you enjoy and hope you might also discover a few nuggets of greatness from this list. Here’s wishing each and every one of you, and your families, a fantastic and extremely successful 2017 filled with great health, much happiness, love and laughter! LIVE A GREAT STORY!

Cheers from The “Unofficial Mayor of Austin!”
