Counting Down From 100 to 81.

The North Texas music scene has really come into its own the past 12 months. There hasn't been a year in recent memory when so many local artists appeared on the Billboard charts, played Saturday Night Live and other late-night television programs or otherwise glimmered in the national spotlight.

Aside from the breakout year that Leon Bridges has been having, Post Malone and Justus each caused quite the stir in the hip-hop world, Pentatonix and Selena Gomez topped the charts, and plenty of other locals reached the status of being able to regularly headline venues the size of Trees and the Granada.

Here, as we've done in years past, we're highlighting what we think are the 100 best songs locally-tied of the year. The thing is, as far as this list is concerned, we're judging the quality of the songs irrespective of the popularity of the people putting them out — meaning, you're just as likely to have a song by a Grammy-winning act sandwiched between a couple of high school bands.

Hey, it's just more interesting that way.

Also keeping with tradition, we'll be rolling out the list in smaller, more digestible portions every weekday through the end of the month, complete with embedded streams of each. We think that gives each of these more than deserving acts a little more shine, and it also gives you a little more time to really check out each of these high quality tunes — including, presumably, a few that you may have missed upon their initial release. — Cory Graves
