Best Statue

Stevie Ray Vaughan

Arguably one of the city's most revered figures, SRV has reclaimed his reigning title set in stone (bronze, actually) for two years in a row. Sorry, Willie, there's always next year. And we have this statue to thank for one of the rare moments of levity during this year's floods – seeing el Vaughan with his No. 1 walk on water in a number of viral photographs was only confirmation of his glory (and how high the waters had risen).
