I must say that I bought this CD primarily for "Amazed" by Lonestar. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the richness and diversity of the music available on this CD, and feel that it is a welcome addition to my CD collection.
I must concur with the other reviewer: there is a real mix of country music on the CD. This makes Country Legends an excellent introduction to the country sound and well worth the money paid for it. There are also some real gems, I particularly like "From A Distance" by Nanci Griffith and also "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue" by Crystal Gayle.
The thing I really like about the Country sound is that it is happy (even the emotional numbers still have that twang about them). It is excellent music to sing along to and also to realx to. A CD for any day or mood.
All in all a cracking country combo...

I bought this double album out of curiosity. I’m not a massive country fan, but have always loved Billie Jo Spears (I'm pleased "Blanket On The Ground" and "What I've Got In Mind" are here) and some of the other artists who appear on this compilation. - Roy Orbison, Don McLean, Glen Campbell, Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash. I also wanted to hear particular tracks – Ned Miller’s “From A Jack To A King” and Crystal Gayle’s “Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue”.
However, I was blown away by Juice Newton's version of "Angel Of The Morning" (what a fantastic voice she has). I also love the following track by Tim McGraw, “Please Remember Me”. These are so stunning I've had to dip into my wallet and buy one each of their albums. Until they arrive, I’ll keep play these two over and over again.
This is a really good album and I don’t want to discount the other 39 tracks, not as you may want to follow up by buying albums by Nanci, the Big O, McLean and others, but Juice and Tim are the finds on this album - she has stolen my heart (I’m absolutely smitten) and I love Tim’s song - so listen to these tracks and you’ll want more,

Country music isn't everyone's cup of tea, but if you're a sceptic - like i was - give this compilation a listen and you may be pleasantly surprised.

It's certainly not full of cheesy nonsense (with the exception of the ubiquitous but dreadful Dolly Parton and Billy Ray Cyrus) or depressing dirges sung by hillbillies. It contains a good mix of country-influenced tracks from a wide range of (largely) creditable artists covering several decades. As a result, anyone with even the slightest interest in singer-songwriters or easy listening as well as country & western should find several tracks of interest.

However, at full price, it's not a cheap way of obtaining a few tracks that you may like and a number of others that you may not, so look out for a reasonably priced second hand copy in good condition would be my advice.

I originally purchased this cd for my husband and had never really listened to this type of music, however, played it once and I love it and he's not having it back! It's got some fantastic songs that I remembered when I was younger but never really listened to . Lovely.

I received this CD and brought it back to Malaysia when I visited London. I played it last night and found the following problems -
Disc 1 cannot be played at all. Thinking it was my CD player, I put it in my car CD player and the same thing happens. I put in CD 2. It played but then stopped on track one. I went to track 2 it played for a while and stopped again. I am not sure what's wrong with the CD.

The choice of songs and performers is good, but few of the songs are full-length. Almost all have been shortened from their original versions. .

I've listened to this two pack cd 5 times now and still find it difficult to jump from song to another, its such a mixed up bunch. It covers all styles of country from all era's and all singers. there is bound to be a bit of something for everyone. a great gift for your mum or dad for christmas.

More country pop, than real country. Enjoyable though.

Having seen the album on line, had my reservations about it, but would say that it is worth the money, and it gives a good variety of the world of country music.
