AllMusic Review by Heather Phares

Country Legends gathers hits from country artists like Jody Miller, Billie Jo Spears, and Tennessee Ernie Ford. The collection spans the '60s, '70s, and '80s with tracks like Willie Nelson's "Crazy," Glen Campbell's "Wichita Lineman," and Crystal Gayle's "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue." Kenny Rogers contributes two of his biggest hits, "The Gambler" and "She Believes In Me." Bobbie Gentry's "Ode to Billie Joe" and Dottie West's "Hey Mr. Dream Maker" are two of the collection's other highlights. Country Legends also includes two singles from Olivia Newton John's country years, "If You Could Read My Mind" and "I Honestly Love You," adding diversity to this adequate country compilation.
