AllMusic Review by

Time Life's Country U.S.A. is an excellent series spotlighting original hits from a specific year by the artists who made them famous. This volume samples 24 tracks from 1961 including such classics as Patsy Cline's "I Fall to Pieces," Faron Young's "Hello Walls," and Jimmy Dean's "Big Bad John," in addition to strong tracks by Wanda Jackson ("Right or Wrong"), Tex Ritter ("I Dreamed of a Hill-Billy Heaven"), and Buck Owens ("Foolin' Around"). This enjoyable sampler will please any die-hard country fan.
