Drive-By Truckers had a solid 2016, dropping their American Band LP and landing on a a bunch of year-end lists.

Now the Truckers' Patterson Hood is sharing his own year-end list with us from what he described as a "shitty year." He shouts out the ubiquitous likes of David Bowie, Solange, Beyonce, Frank Ocean, Radiohead and A Tribe Called Quest, along with slightly more idiosyncratic choices like Richmond Fontaine, John Paul White, Cass McCombs and Hiss Golden Messenger. Check out Patterson's list:

Patterson Hood - 2016 Year End (A Great Soundtrack to a Shitty Year)
David Bowie - Blackstar
Solange - A Seat At The Table
Angel Olsen - My Woman
Hiss Golden Messenger - Heart Like A Levee
Beyonce - Lemonade
Cass McCombs - Mangy Love
Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool
Frank Ocean - Blonde (Blond)

John Paul White - Beulah
A Tribe Called Quest - We Got It From Here
