10 Songs, 32 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The ten songs on Greatest Hits, Vol. 1 appealed to a new country music listener, or at least a new image the country music listener had of himself. This is music for tailgate parties and tractor pulls, and its one-liners and patriotic slogans would influence a generation of performers to come. “Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound” is as pure a honky tonk song as anyone could imagine, and “All My Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down)” reveals a vulnerability underneath its boozy bluster.

What's not to love!

So many hits I don't know where to start. This album is definitely worth the money. Favorite song is All my rowdy friends have settled down. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up.
