What artist or artists will be most synonymous with the past decade?

While they put out my personal favorite record in their catalog in the mid 90s (_Being There_ Disc 1) and I can admit I didn’t really spend too much time with their last two studio albums I think that Wilco stands out as an important artist in the last decade. They’ve consistently made great music and put on even better shows throughout the decade. More importantly they’ve made wise business choices in all aspects of their business all the while taking chances and facing seemingly endless mountains to climb. It has been a bittersweet decade for sure for them but it’s made for some great art.
