Nashville Sounds of the 80's collects ten popular country singles released on BMG in the first half of that decade. Most of this material still sounds fresh, especially "Smokey Mountain Memories" by Earl Thomas Conley, "Good Times" by Willie Nelson, "Texas Bound and Flyin'" by Jerry Reed, and "Biggest Broken Heart in Houston" by Barbara Mandrell and R.C. Bannon. Tracks from Juice Newton, Ray Stevens, Dottie West, Dave & Sugar, Razzy Bailey, and Ray Stevens round out this entertaining budget retrospective.
