We asked, and you answered. Over 1,800 La Crosse County residents and visitors nominated finalists for the Best of La Crosse County 2015, and more than 8,000 participated in the final voting. You weighed in on everything from auto repair to tattoo parlors, and now we have the results. See the full list of winners at http://explorelacrosse.com/bestof.

Here are your picks for Best Music Store.

1. Deaf Ear Records

Deaf Ear takes home the title of Best Music Store in La Crosse County for the second straight year, once again coming out on top in a close race with Dave’s Guitar Shop and Leithold Music. Deaf Ear remains the best stop in town for vinyl enthusiasts, not to mention stereo equipment, movies, comic books, collectibles, new & used CDs, casette tapes, posters, and more. There’s also a head shop upstairs and the “Game Dungeon” in the basement. For updates on new music releases, collectibles, sales, and more, follow Deaf Ear on Facebook.
