The Best Country Albums Of 2018… So Far

We’re just about at the half-way point of 2018 and it’s already been one helluva year for the country music world.

It’s always hard to come up with a list like this because throughout the year, as you continue to listen to more and more music, tastes can change. Some albums are new and exciting, but may fade over time, and some will go on to stand the test of time. Nothing guarantees that these same albums will even make the year-end list, but right now, for my money these are the best of the best. Also, sorry to Luke Combs, but deluxe albums don’t really count. Maybe in the year-end list they will.

In no particular order…

The Mountain – Dierks Bentley

Girl Going Nowhere – Ashley McBryde

Port Saint Joe – Brothers Osborne

Hallelujah Nights – LANCO

Golden Hour – Kacey Musgraves
