Album Review

What do names like Buck Owens, George Jones, Conway Twitty, and Johnny Paycheck have in common besides being the rulers of traditional country music? They all have songs they originally recorded included on this exciting mix of country lore from the expressive baritone Daryle Singletary. Singletary's first album in two years brings tradition back into the spotlight with an album of mostly covers by such classic artists as Owens, Jones, Lefty Frizzell, and Merle Haggard. But what gives the album its appeal are the harmony and background vocal guests — Dwight Yoakam, bluegrass queen Rhonda Vincent, and Jones himself on his 1967 hit, "Walk Through This World With Me." The 12-track collection is like an ode to the '60s when the Bakersfield sound dominated country music.

Customer Reviews


This is one of the best country albums released during the past ten years. Daryle Singletary mined deep within the depths of classic country music and brought forth a real gem. Classic songs such as A-11, I Never Go Around Mirrors, and my personal favorite, Kay, make this worth it's weight in gold.

Old Violin

Good album but the song Old Violin could not be and never will be done as good as Johnny Paycheck.


This is a fantastic project. This in my opinion is the best country project released in this millenium up to this point. A 5 star rating is way way way underrating this great cd. If you love real country music just order it up and eat your heart out while listening to this fantastic artist from South Georgia. Thanks a lot Daryle for recording us this great music.
