The camera-slinging creative force behind Americana ensemble Waits & Co. returns to the Best Singer-Songwriter category. The Southern songwriter has been on “a hiatus of sorts” over the last year, taking care of some health issues and resting from the gigging musician’s grind. Look for new endeavors from Waits & Co., his project with Markus Kuhlmann and Jon Pizzichemi, new material, a solo EP, and live performances.

Runner-Up: Isaac Smith
