Best of 2010

This is an odd year, where I listened to a ton of bluegrass / folk but many of my picks are from the hip-hop world.

Album: My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy by Kanye West. Runners-Up: The ArchAndroid by Janelle Monae, So Runs the World Away by Josh Ritter

Track: "Runaway" by Kanye West. Runner Up: "The Curse" by Josh Ritter.

Best Cover: "Hit 'Em Up Style" by the Carolina Chocolate Drops (original by Blu Cantrell).

Live Act: Mandolin Masters' Workshop, Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival (featuring Ronnie McCoury, Sarah Jarosz, David Grisman, Joe Walsh, and Buddy Merriam).
