Satellite radio broadcaster SiriusXM announced its year in music, identifying artists and songs drawn from across multiple genres of music that they think are noteworthy, or exceptional, and which resonated with their subscribers.
These selections were determined by members of the SiriusXM music curation team and are driven, in part, 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."
