To set the record straight, calling this collection Kings of Country is a bit misleading. Certainly there are some, such as Jimmie Rodgers, George Jones, Buck Owens, and Willie Nelson. But where are Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Merle Haggard, or even Roy Acuff for that matter? That aside, this ten-track collection has some pretty great stuff on it: there's Don Gibson's "Oh Lonesome Me," George Jones' "Old Brush Arbors," and Freddy Fender's "Before the Next Teardrop Falls."
