Country Heat 2010

Listening to Country Heat 2010 is a bit like listening to a Top 40 new country station at midwinter in 2009, which, come to think of it, is pretty much the point of this 16-track sampler. Yeah, it says 2010, but it came out before the year turned, and some of these songs were still in regular radio and television rotation when that new year did arrive. Brad Paisley and Keith Urban's “Start a Band” is here, along with Kenny Chesney's “Out Last Night,” Alan Jackson's “Country Boy,” Jason Aldean's “Big Green Tractor,” and Carrie Underwood's “I Told You So.” There aren’t really any surprises, but there aren’t any commercial interruptions, either. ~ Steve Leggett
