Best Of Nashville 2010
It just so happens that 2010's finest country album is also the year's longest one — Johnson's The Guitar Song. It's got a whopping 25 songs, and the vinyl version fills three LPs. Here's the hard-to-believe part: There's really not a dud among them. Johnson wrote or co-wrote the lion's share and plucked the rest from top-shelf sources like Kris Kristofferson, Hank Cochran and Mel Tillis. No matter whose story he's telling — a poor man's, a torn-up lover's — he and his gruff drawl hit both the mind and the gut, and that's not easy to do. JEWLY HIGHT
