It’s nearly time to close the books on 2023 and turn your ears toward 2024. 

Taylor Swift dominated the charts, the venues, the box office, Spotify and NFL air time. “Barbie” – life in plastic, it was fantastic. Olivia Rodrigo didn’t have a sophomore slump, and K-pop shows no signs of fading.

We lost so many great names – Tina Turner, David Crosby, Jimmy Buffett, Tony Bennett, Harry Belafonte, Gordon Lightfoot, Sinéad O’Connor, Robbie Robertson.

Farewell, 2023. Thank you for the music.
