Posted By on Thu, Jan 26, 2012 at 7:45 AM

The 12th Annual Country Music Critics’ Poll: In a year ruled by Miranda Lambert and her Pistol Annies, Eric Church and Hayes Carll, country music returns to taking itself a little less seriously

Key Change: Kathleen Edwards gets some distance from twang — no offense — and makes an album with Bon Iver (Playing Saturday, 28th at Exit/In)

Boy From Alabama: Jason Isbell goes it alone — just him, his guitar and a perfect song or two — in Franklin (Playing Friday, 27th at Franklin Theater)

Spirit of ’66: With the release of her 1966, the songs of late, great folkie Karen Dalton are given new life (1966 was released Jan. 24 via Delmore Recording Society)
