2017 was a busy year for Daytrotter. In March alone we hosted the 2nd annual Daytrotter Downs festival and visited SXSW and Treefort Music Fest to record sessions on the road. The Daytrotter venue saw performances by Chicano Batman, The Body, The Smoking Popes, Gaelynn Lea, and many more. Daytrotter released over 550 sessions this year, so picking the top 100 songs was no easy feat. Our #1 song this year comes from Twain, who we all believe has big things headed his way. The folk singer-songwriter invokes true Americana spirit and his songs are instant classics. Enjoy our 100 best songs from this year, which features 100 artists who left a lasting impression on us and our listeners in 2017.
