AllMusic Review by

Hank Williams, Jr. co-starred with Shelley Fabares in the film A Time to Sing, in which Williams played a budding country star on his way to the top, with lots of music thrown in along the way. The soundtrack album is almost entirely Williams' show with the exception of one song, "Next Time I Say Goodbye I'm Leaving," which sounds like less than a minute of Fabares' singing crudely spliced into the middle of a generic vocal group performance. Time to Sing contains one of Williams' biggest '60s hits, the gorgeous Charlie Rich-style ballad "It's All Over but the Crying." "Rock in My Shoe," and "Hummingbird Line" are songs Williams' would have recorded otherwise, but "A Time to Sing" is a drippy piece of fluff that appears in two versions. Don't be frightened away by the movie tie-in -- Time to Sing is a respectable Hank Williams, Jr. album in its own right.
