Guide Review - Various Artists - Nashville Now: Red Mix
What I like about mix albums is that there's always something
for everyone. With all the variety of music included, you're
sure to like at least a few of the songs. Especially if they
are all hits.
On the fast side of the spectrum, there are plenty of hits
that stand out: Kenny Chesney's "Keg In The Closet"
is the album's first track & gives off a fun vibe to start
things off. Then, to pick things up where Kenny left off,
there is Miranda Lambert's song "Me And Charlie Talking."
It's a song I will never get tired of hearing as I am a fan
of Miranda's music. Cowboy Crush's "Hillbilly Nation"
is almost like a party anthem for the country crowd. Keith
Anderson really knows how to release songs you can sing along
to, so it's no wonder why his "XXL" song is also
To help balance things out, there are also a few slower songs
included. Brad Paisley's "Little Moments" is the
first one, to be followed by Martina McBride's "In My
Daughter's Eyes." Both songs really touch your heart.
Then there is "Restless," by Alison Krauss + Union
Station. Alison's voice is so beautiful & the musicianship
of Union Station makes for a perfect combination when it comes
to the music they produce. Vince Gill is another artist with
a flawless voice. "I Still Believe In You" closes
Other artists on the album include Jo Dee Messina, Phil Vassar,
Leann Rimes, & Montgomery Gentry. Nashville Now - Red
Mix may only be available at Target stores or Online, but
it really is worth the extra effort if you are a fan of any
artists found on the album.
