Patriotic Country 3
Moulton, CSO Staff Journalist
I reviewed the first
installment of this series a while back and remembered it
being very good, so I went for part 3. The 3rd compilation
hits me in a different light, it has country music from
almost every era, from Kenny Rodgers and Waylon Jennings, to
the new group Sugarland. Also, I like the song sequence,
very well thought out, it will surprise you at times. I
guess the only thing missing are a couple of super songs
like "Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning" by Alan
Jackson and "Riding With Private Malone" by David Ball,
those two songs are plain killers, that surpass the normal
world of songdom, and touch the inside of you.
Not withstanding, these
seventeen tracks are good and lots of classic tracks like
"One More day" by Diamond Rio, that one always did something
to me. Waylon Jennings, with his "America," is great, and if
you do not like Gretchen Wilson's "Politically Incorrect"
(with The Hag), well, I don't know.
The Album starts out with
a very pensive song by Kenny Chesney, "A Lot Of Things
Different," which is a great tune with some thought invoking
lyrics. You know, at first listen, I didn't like the way
this disc was mastered, but I guess it grew on me, well
done. What I do like is an old fashioned looking CD with a
shiny silver top. Also, the cover is nice, not over
the top, but you have to have the "As Seen On TV,"
personally I haven't seen it on TV yet.
"Blessed" by Martina
McBride is a good ad. It comes roaring on after a slower
track. I have always thought Lonestar's "From My Front Porch
Looking In" was a great tune.
I guess the one question I
have is, who is Keni Thomas? Not a bad song at all, just
never heard of this act. "God Bless America" by LeAnne Rimes
is a perfect fit and she does it justice.
A very nice gesture is
that the Label putting this out is giving a portion of the
proceeds to "Our Military Kids," a leader in supporting the
men and women of the armed services and their families.
With the fourth of July
coming up and summer time election speeches, this is the
perfect CD for a country fan to have. This is an important
time in our Country's history and we need some good music to
keep our heart's encouraged for the sacrifices of our
military men and women around the world.
