Alt-512's Records Of The Decade

Been a helluva a musical decade. It seems like whatever this music is [called] that we all like, OKOM, for lack a better term, really came into its own. The older [living] guys (Terry Allen, Guy Clark, Joe Ely, Billy Joe Shaver, Butch Hancock, et al) really got their dues as they continued putting out some really great new music. The younger guys (REK, Snider, the Robison Brothers, Slaid Cleaves, et al) continued to grew and hone their crafts. And some new/newer acts (Hayes Carll, Corb Lund, Ryan Bingham, et al) clawed their way from obscurity to bring the world some truly amazing records and thousands of amazing live performances. And of course some of the bands that really influenced us in the first decade of the 21st century aren't together anymore (South Austin Jug Band, The Dedringers, The Gougers, The Tennessee Rounders, The Sovines, etc).

As with all of our lists, this one is not in any particular order. With that, I present you with the list of our favorite albums that were released in the first decade of the 21st century. [The noughties?]
