As we do each year, the UTR Critics Panel convenes and votes on the music that they consider to be the very best of the year. Making our final Top 11 Gourmet Albums of the Year list is not easy (this list will be published on 1/15/18), especially because it’s a collective list of ten critics. Today we feature some of the albums that came very close to making the Top 11 list. Yet these outliers definitely deserve the attention of your ears. So, here are the Honorable Mentions list of Top Gourmet Albums for 2017 (in no particular order).
Abide With Me – Sara Groves
A Lovely Wait – Nathan Partain
Souvenir – Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors
Let Them Fall In Love – CeCe Winans
Heartland – John Tibbs
Crooked – Propaganda
