As we head into the end of the 2016, it's time to start asking one of the most important questions The Bitter Southerner faces every year: What are the best Southern albums of the year? We made this page so our readers can nominate records they love all year. We want to make sure we don't miss the chance to listen to all the records you think are worthy of consideration for our year-end top 25.

We expect a good many of you will have fun with this. You're welcome to fill it out as many times as you want, until you run out of great stuff from 2016.
