AllMusic Review by

Jasmine's 24-track From Cowboy to Country compilation collects some silver screen crooner Jimmy Wakely's biggest Old West hits. As far as singing cowboys are concerned, Wakely's right up there with Tex Ritter and the like, and his versions of classic campfire ditties like "Cimarron (Roll On)" and "Night Herding Song" represent the snow-capped peak of the genre. From Cowboy to Country, though a few songs short of ASV/Living Era's superior Melody Kid, is a great addition to anyone's Western library.
