Best Country Band (Traditional) 

Trigger 5

In 2009 this honky-tonk and rockabilly ensemble released its first album, Heartbreak and Regret, a concept album about the two sides to every "sorry story," with a bonus track called "Cinder Dick." The jokes mostly stop there, however, and the sound of seriously swinging, smooth shuffling and sometimes playful, sometimes poignant, always hard country songwriting takes over. Mike Heeter and Amy James share the vocal spotlight, but it's the band that burns brightest, with slap-bass, understated drumming and a triple-threat string attack of pedal steel, fiddle and unassailably twangy electric guitar.
