AllMusic Review by

This two-CD best-of includes Roy Acuff's best-loved songs, like "The Wabash Cannonball," the song with which he made his Grand Ole Opry debut, his version of the country standard "I Saw the Light," and the atmospheric "Night Train to Memphis." Mixing the King of Country Music's secular songs, his sentimental favorites, like "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," and his equally important gospel material, like "The Glory Bound Train" and "Life's Railway to Heaven," COUNTRY MUSIC LEGENDS provides a good basic overview of the breadth of Acuff's work.
