America's Country

This compilation of patriotic and inspirational country music clearly is intended to respond to the national mood in the wake of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. It is for the most part a label sampler of recordings from Sony's Columbia and Epic labels. The material has been assembled from existing sources rather than being newly written and recorded, and ranges from generalized statements of fraternal support like "Bridge over Troubled Water" to diatribes like "The Fightin' Side of Me." ~ William Ruhlmann
