BEST CONTEMPORARY PROTEST SONG: “Flowers on the Chains,” Lorna Bracewell

This popular St. Pete-based singer/songwriter, who tours internationally, addresses many hot-button issues in a feisty, thoughtful manner without clobbering the listener over the head with ideology. The title track to her new album offers a measured look at marriage, faith and the pros and cons of following political leaders.
