Top Pages Visited on Hillbilly-Music.com in 2017 Announced

Modesto, CA — February 15, 2018 — In keeping with a bit of the old time publications that liked to announce the top singers, instrumentalists and bands of a given year, here is our annual version. These lists are based on the number of visitors to a given page indicated in the category.

We appreciate the efforts of fans to salute their favorites in these annual summaries, but we are aware of the attempts to raise the 'scores'.

We look forward in 2018 to continue to document those who have been a part of hillbilly music's storied history. Our work on this site is far from done. That's why we always tell fans - come back every now and then, you never know who may have stopped by and helped us tell their story.
