    Which AMA "Song of the Year" would you vote for?

    We're very close to the AMA award show.

    If anyone's willing to take part, I'd be interested to know which of the four songs you'd back for "Song of the Year". (I'll post videos)

    Wow, I just do not know, I think in general the majority of songs that have come out this year have not been that good. To me this is one of those years, where anything can go because the majority of the songs are equally as bad, or equally average. So I just don't know.

    That's OK - I posted the videos because I thought some people might not be familiar with the songs - which won't be played on most Mainstream stations. But I'd be interested if anyone is willing to give it a go

    I like only lies the best. I like them all, but only lies is my favorite.

    If I had to guess (I'm usually wrong! lol), I'd regard Jason Isbell as probably the odds-on prediction, with his intense and passionate song, which probably contains references to his own struggles with his demons, and his new marriage to Amanda Shires (who plays fiddle in the video). Isbell has been the current album favourite, topping their chart for several weeks, and getting a high "best of year" placing in many critics surveys of 2013 Country albums.

    Rosanne has also been a recent chart topper in this format. Her song contains a wry reference to the "money" residing in Nashville - while she heads down to Florence and the Shoals (the same music-rich area that can cite Jason Isbell, the Civil Wars, and Carrie's arguably best known song, "Before He Cheats", among its later-day offspring).

    I have to confess that "Only Lies" is the song I'm least familiar with, and it may take time to grow on me.

    All told, though, I think my personal choice would go to Patty Griffin's "Ohio" - its striking, Asian-influenced music making it quite a standout
