Piercing Ken Thoughts: So that brings us to the end of this latest rundown. What did you think about the winners? Did your favorites win out in the end or did you feel that they were cheated of the honor? If you think this way I’d love to hear from you in the comments section down below because its always great to know what is on our readerships mind. Though I haven’t really been listening to any Country stuff in quite some time, there are some artists that I enjoy when I need a musical change of pace and I will be perusing this list a little deeper on my Spotify when the pile of emails to sort through and post about gets a little lower. My hopes is that you are all still safe and sound during the continuing pandemic issues. Just listen to the guidelines of your region and be smart. I’d hate to see anything happening to our friends for sure. See you next time with some more stuff. Stay tuned.
