SiriusXM has announced its Best of 2015, and several artists with ties to Music City are among the highest rankings.

Eric Church and Taylor Swift were named among the SiriusXM Artists of the Year, alongside Adele, Calvin Harris, and The Weeknd.

SiriusXM Breakthrough Artists of the Year includes Old Dominion, as well as Elle King, Jidenna, Kygo, and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats.

Garth Brooks ranks alongside Janet Jackson and Giorgio Moroder for SiriusXM “Welcome Back” Artists of the Year.

New Sony Nashville artist Maren Morris is named alongside Daya, Declan McKenna, Nothing But Thieves, and Tory Lanez as SiriusXM Artists To Watch in 2016.

These selections were determined by members of the SiriusXM music curation team and were driven by subscriber feedback.

“We are thrilled to recognize this group of extraordinary artists who have struck an emotional chord with our subscribers and helped expand the boundaries of music in 2015,” said Steve Blatter, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Music Programming, SiriusXM. “Our year end music lists are based on regular feedback from our community of more than 29 million subscribers across America and demonstrate our  commitment to music discovery.”
