Our host of Road Songs (and Night Train!), Rus Thompson, looks back at 2022 with a few of his favorite albums of the year. Catch Road Songs every Tuesday from 9:00 PM to 11:00 PM.
“The mark for me of a memorable album of songs is that I end up playing all of them at some point on Road Songs. And what makes a memorable song? Personal and piquant writing, with imagery that evokes the heartbreak, happiness, and trials of everyday life, especially life on the road. Here are my five most memorable albums of 2022:”
Zach Bryan/American Heartbreak/Belting Bronco Records
Plains/I Walked With You a Ways/Anti
Laura Benitez and the Heartache/California Centuries/Copperhead Records
Chris Canterbury/Quaalude Lullabies/Rancho Deluxe Records
Ian Noe/River Fools and Mountain Saints/Lock 13 Records
