Country singing star Reba McEntire was born and raised in Oklahoma, so Oklahoma Girl seemed a fitting title when producers began putting this album together, picking songs that covered a lot of McEntire's early career. This album is a must-have for any McEntire fan, and for almost any country fan at all. Oklahoma Girl is a solid two-disc offering. Each disc carries 20 tracks, a total of 40 songs in one buy. The first disc holds numbers such as "A Cowboy Like You," "Right Time of the Night," "The Blues Don't Care Who's Got 'Em," and "Tears on My Pillow." Some of the songs on disc two that fans probably remember the best include "I'm Not That Lonely Yet," "Can't Even Get the Blues No More," "You're the First Time I've Thought About Leaving," and "Pins and Needles." Unless you have all of McEntire's early works, you'll probably find a number of tunes on this set that you are missing -- including a few previously unreleased tracks. This is a great way to get a good country collection started with one purchase.
