Kacey Musgraves, Brandy Clark, Ashley Monroe shine in critics' poll

By Stephen L. Betts. CREATED Jan 24, 2014

Just as they did in the year-end best albums list for Nashville Edge, singer-songwriters Kacey Musgraves, Brandy Clark and Ashley Monroe dominate the just-released Nashville Scene country music critics' poll. The Music City weekly compiled its 14th annual list with contributions from 98 music writers (including yours truly) from across the country.

For a taste of what made the list, tune in to CMT on Sunday (Jan. 26) when Katie Cook hosts "CMT Presents Nashville Scene Country Music Critics' Poll Singles of the Year." The special will air at 9:00 AM ET/PT.

Kacey and Brandy are also up for Grammy awards this year, but surprisingly, Ashley was not among the nominees. The Grammys air live from Los Angeles Sunday night at 7:00 PM ET on CBS.
