Now That's What I Call Country, Vol. 2

Arriving at the end of the summer of 2009, Now That's What I Call Country, Vol. 2 rounds up 20 hits of the past year or so, featuring such major stars as Keith Urban ("Kiss a Girl"), Kenny Chesney ("Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven"), Taylor Swift ("Love Story"), Rascal Flatts ("Here"), Carrie Underwood ("I Told You So"), Alan Jackson ("Country Boy"), Sugarland ("All I Want to Do"), Miranda Lambert ("Gunpowder & Lead"), Darius Rucker ("It Won't Be Like This for Long"), Dierks Bentley ("Sideways"), and the perennial George Strait ("Troubadour"). Not everything here is as big a hit as everything else, not everything here is perfect, but it is an entertaining and useful sampler of the sound of contemporary country in 2008/2009. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
