Peering into country music's crystal ball, 2015 is poised to be a year of comebacks, throwbacks and grand events. The biggest revivals will include a new chapter of one country queen's recording career while another returns to the big screen after more than a decade. Albums by the likes of Kacey Musgraves, Loretta Lynn and Jamey Johnson will, no doubt, remind fans of the foundation of country's appeal: its lyrics. And big ticket shows on both coasts will team country-radio rulers with their equally gifted freshmen counterparts. Here, Rolling Stone Country looks ahead to the albums, films, events and trends we're most looking forward to in 2015.
