Grammy Poll

Who would you have given the Grammy to for Best Americana Album?


Editor’s Note: Our fourth annual Best of La Crosse contest drew approximately 1,775 voters, all through our website. We would like to thank the voters, as well as the many local businesses that advertised in this issue, for their support of the free press in La Crosse. Winners in the music division will be announced in our October edition.
