Editor's Picks: Laura B. Whitmore's Favorite Acoustic Albums of 2013
There’s no denying, this is the decade that acoustic comes into its own. From the rootsiest traditional down-home country, to bluegrass, soul, rock, funk and pop and beyond, acoustic instruments have been taking center stage in all genres, and I say, good for us!
Having stepped up to the plate at Acoustic Nation as we launched in October of 2013, I admit I might have missed a few gems from the beginning of the year. But as a lover of all things acoustic and musical, I can assure you, there are some worthy listens that follow just awaiting your willing ears.
Here are some of my faves of 2013. I’m sure you’ve got some of your own. Let us know!
James Blunt – Moon Landing
I was lucky enough to see the fabulous Mr. Blunt live this year at the Live in the Vineyard concert. Man, so GOOD! His live version of “Bonfire Heart” was rousing to say the least. And that song is creatively written and catchy at the same time. Blunt is clearly a master of the craft, with sweet guitar and ethereal vocals soaring above. I can't get enough of Moon Landing!
Here's the official video for “Bonfire Heart”
