COUNTRY'S 20 CLASSIC SONGS OF THE CENTURY
Your probably thinking our collective screw is loose. How can anyone attempt to boil a centurys worth of country songs down to a single CD But take a gander at the track list. Go ahead, well wait. Yeah, thats what were talkin about! It is not without reason that this collection is among the best-selling souvenirs of a visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Around here we don't take the word classic lightly. This is nothing but the cream. Any such list will spark debate, but the staying power of these songs and the artists who sang them cannot be denied. In the 21st century were still walking the floor over somebody. Still crazy for feeling so lonely. Maybe crying in the rain. In Amarillo or El Paso, days go by and someone is still always loving someone. Kissing her good morning. Forever and ever, amen. Contained here are reminders of how one song, written by one individual in perhaps the most down-and-out state of mind in the darkest hour, can impact the landscape of music (and lives) for decades. Listen with this in mind and be thankful for those people who took up the pen between bottles, or who decided the world needed to hear about the love of their life. The sixteen-page booklet includes an essay on the country music tradition as well as artist photos and notes on each song. You will not be disappointed by this album.
