AllMusic Review by

With its expansive, sprawling size, modern highway systems, and inherent love of cars, trucks, and motion, America is ready-made for songs about moving down the highway, hitting the back roads, driving all night, and everything that goes with a world of speed and distance. This set collects country and roots artists doing just a handful of these road songs, including tracks by Waylon Jennings ("No Expectations"), Wayne Hancock ("Life on the Road," "Brand New Cadillac"), Hasil Adkins ("Get Outta My Car"), and others.
