Country Wildflowers contains a selection of hits from female country singers, of all styles and genres, but concentrating on the the modern coutnry of the '80s and '90s. After touching briefly on Patsy Cline, the album jumps ahead to Linda Ronstadt's "It's So Easy" and Dolly Parton's "Tennessee Homesick Blues," before settling down to Patty Loveless, Carlene Carter, Tanya Tucker, Lorrie Morgan, Roseanne Cash, Kathy Mattea and Kelly Willis. Though there isn't much thematic consistency to the album apart from the sex of all of the performers, it's an enjoyable collection that gives a vague idea about the history of women in country music, as well as the variety.
