AllMusic Review by

With America Salutes the Beatles as its pretentious and misleading subtitle, Come Together in fact samples from the mid-'90s crop of country-pop dilettantes with a smattering of veteran warriors (including Kris Kristofferson, whose "Paperback Writer" provides the disc's only true grit), and a pair of non-country ringers (Huey Lewis, Delbert McClinton). Longtime Tanya Tucker mentor Jerry Crutchfield is cast in the George Martin role and is clearly not up to the production challenge. The most pitiful element is that many of the 18 artists captured here seem to be mouthing the lyrics from cuecards or a tele-prompter.
