Staff Picks – Brit

I always hate doing the staff picks because I wish I could just re-post half the videos we receive during the week. There’s so much great stuff it’s hard to trim it down to just a handful of artists without leaving someone out. Last year my picks had a strong Alabama bent; after reviewing what I tagged this year, I seem to be leaning more towards the Nashville artists. We’ll see where next year takes me!

Possibly my favorite video of this year came from Aaron Lee Tasjan. I had heard his name before but knew nothing about him. For some reason this song just stuck with me. Not only did ALT just release a new EP last week, but he’s playing my town this coming week (yay me!).

Other Nashville highlights include Todd Farrell Jr, A Rake & The Rosebud, Wess Floyd, Jesse Lasfer, The Wild Ponies, and Glossary, although they’re technically from Murfreesboro.

Some other new faces that blew CXCW away were Caleb Caudle, Scott Low, and Adam Faucett. I’m really looking forward to seeing a lot more from these guys.

Check out my Brit Pick tab to see who else I enjoyed this year. Thanks everyone for all the effort you put into your videos. We love seeing the new faces just as much as the familiar ones. See y’all next year!
