    Congrats on your two years. I enjoy reading the news and reviews here every day. I discovered CU about 4 years ago when googling something about Matraca Berg. Shortly after I found the 9513 and then engine 145 thru the list of other sites on CU. Thank you CU – my favorite country music blog.

    Besides the great writing on both sites, I like the ease in commenting. I don’t have to prove I’m human by trying to decipher barely readable letters. I don’t have to go thru facebook or some other social media form.

    I don’t wish to enter this contest. Hopefully someone who really likes bluegrass will win the Frazier album.

    Ashley Monore’s ‘Like A Rose,’ Kacey Musgraves’s ‘Same Trailer Different Park’ and the duets project from Vince Gill/Paul Franklin. I’m also enjoying the sophomore effort from Pistol Annies.

    I’ve been near obsessed with Ashley Monroe this year.

    My favorites of this year so far would definitely include the new Kacey Musgraves, LeAnn Rimes, Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell, and The Mavericks, to name a few. Favorite bluegrass albums are the new sets from The SteelDrivers and The Gibson Brothers. Haven’t heard this particular album just yet, but I look forward to checking it out even if I don’t win it.

    And yes, congratulations to Engine 145 on two amazing years!

    Love Dale Watson’s “El Rancho.”

    “When We Fall”?
    Sounds like this album should be from Down Goes Frazier!

    Hard to pick just one…or five- this month, my favourite albums of 2013 are Holly Williams’ “The Highway,” Peter Rowan’s “The Old School,” Jeff Black’s “B Sides and Confessions, Vol. 2,” John Reischman’s “Walk Along John,” and Ashleigh Flynn’s “How The West Was Won.” “The Ghost Brothers of Darkland County” is becoming a fave as well. Ooh, and the new Kimberley Rew and Slaid Cleave albums…
