AllMusic Review by

Ain't That America takes John Cougar Mellencamp's blue-collar rock anthems and applies bluegrass arrangements to them, managing to work outside of a one-time curiosity listen. Songs like "Rain on the Scarecrow," "Jack and Diane," and "Pink Houses" translate well into this genre with the implementation of mandolin, five-string banjo, Dobro, and fiddle.
