Predictable enough nominations and some good stuff . . . I know you’ll be posting an invite for ‘best of the year’ choices soon, but the Kirk Fletcher album, “My Turn” still shades it for me.

I didn’t expect to – but I tell you what – I played that Jimmie Vaughan album loads. That’s worth a listen.
