While 2020 proved tough for music fans, with the cancellation of most live shows due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, there was still stellar new music being released. A number of country and Americana names announced plans to drop new albums in the 12 months of 2020, from Little Big Town early on to Russell Dickerson at the very end.

The new music came quickly from the start of the new year: In addition to LBT, John Moreland, Aubrie Sellers, Ingrid Andress and Brandy Clark, among others, all released new music in the first few months of 2020. The spring brought records from Kip Moore, Sara Evans and many more, while Dickerson, Margo PriceGarth Brooks and others helped round out the fall and winter.
