AllMusic Review by

Despite its classed-up cover art, Country Roadhouse is actually a cheaply produced budget collection that offers little in the way of fidelity and nothing that you can't get somewhere else with better satisfaction. A hissing, scratching live recording of Johnny Cash's "Get Rhythm" sounds like it might have actually been recorded inside a boot, and ancient selections from Jim Reeves and Roy Acuff -- while pleasantly retro -- are undercut by weak, late-career material from Jerry Lee Lewis and Willie Nelson.
