Patriotic Country 3
By: Jim 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.

Release date - 6-24-08
