Price: free
BJ Barham isn’t writing for the front row or the tastemakers. Instead, his blue-collar anthems aim for the cheap seats. The American Aquarium songwriter’s earnest admissions range from struggles with substance abuse to living up to his mother’s expectations. On songs like “Southern Sadness,” he addresses the simultaneous draw and repulsion of his small-town roots—unglamorous, everyday concerns delivered with appropriate gravitas. —Corbie Hill
