Best Country Album 

That Lonesome Song, Jamey Johnson

Johnson has been roundly celebrated for bringing outlaw back, partly because he's the first male country singer in ages who doesn't sound like he ends each evening at 10 p.m. by saying his prayers and tucking his loving, well-behaved kids into bed. Sure, the rowdy fellow has a drink or two, and that's good to hear. But he also writes crisp, colorfully detailed songs backed by the best barroom picking heard anywhere near Music Row in far too long, and he actually leaves some air for songs to breath. Johnson's new album isn't great just because of the attitude it flashes, but because of the craft and chops involved. Let's hope he starts a trend. —MICHAEL McCALL
