AllMusic Review by

An affectionate tribute to the folk, country, and blues standards that inspired him, Americana is the first of a series of covers albums from Canadian-Arcadian singer/songwriter Roch Voisine. Recorded in Nashville, the 2008 follow-up to Sauf Si L'Amour includes covers of Bob Dylan's "Lay Lady Lay," Elvis Presley's "Suspicious Minds," and Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You," alongside both French and English language interpretations of Willie Nelson and Joe Dassin's "City Of New Orleans"/"Salut Les Amoureux," the Everly Brothers/Gilbert Becaud's "Let It Be Me"/"Je T'Appartiens," and Bobbie Gentry and Joe Dassin's "Ode to Billy Joe"/"La Marie-Jeanne."
