For this article we are touching exclusively on EPs and not full albums. This means if an artist released an EP that later became part of a full album in the same year that was judged based on the full album. We also took the designation that the EP must be 4 tracks and must have been formally released as an EP in the current yearly window not just as a collection of singles over the year.
You might ask, why EPs? We think the artists that are releasing EPs right now either are just gearing up to tell their story, or are trying something a little different with their music. We here at Raised Rowdy love both of those things in the Country music landscape.
EPs are a small glimpse into their artist’s sound, but enough to give you an idea of who they are as an artist or where they are at that moment in time.
Give these EPs a listen and let us know what 2019 projects we may have missed. We are always looking to you Rowdies to steer us to more great tunes.
