Like the four previous discs, Totally Country 5 is jam-packed with 17 tracks from country's current hit makers, including Martina McBride (the heart-tugging "God's Will") and Dierks Bentley (the rollicking "How Am I Doin'").
Breakout acts like Gretchen Wilson, who displays a bit of her redneck ways on "Homewrecker," and Jason Aldean, who adds a touch of rock to his smash hit "Hicktown," help to make 5 the best disc in the series so far. Texas fireball Miranda Lambert burns an old flame down on the blazing "Kerosene." The pretty blonde wails like a wounded animal overtop a full-throttle arrangement that owes a debt to Americana King Steve Earle.
Country clowns Big & Rich put the circus tent up and bring out the 'Freak Parade' for the driving "Comin' To Your City." Big Kenny and John Rich stick to their 'every-thing-including-the-kitchen-sink' method of operation, mixing hillbilly music with disco. Big & Rich cohort Cowboy Troy rattles and pops on "I Play Chicken With The Train." Troy is quick-at-the-lip on the mile-a-minute rap track. This ain't your daddy's country, boys and girls.
It's almost cliche to say, but Totally Country 5 has something for everyone. For the pop-country set, songbird Sara Evans turns in a brilliant performance on the playful, "Suds In The Bucket." For the macho males, Craig Morgan chips in the fiddle and steel layered "Redneck Yacht Club." The song, about regular guys cutting it up on the water, will appeal to a lot of hardworking good ol' boys out there.
Traditionalists will be hitting the repeat button when Ray Scott's Waylonesque "My Kind Of Music" comes on. Scott scrapes the lower part of his vocal register as he shares the tale of a country music hating woman who didn't last long in his life. Brother duo Van Zant add a bit of southern rock flavoring to the disc with the thought-provoking "Help Somebody," while the bad boys of country, Montgomery Gentry, offer up the decelerated "You Do Your Thing."
Blake Shelton dips into the well of emotion for the heart-piercing "Goodbye Time." It's Andy Griggs, however, who offers up the album's best moment, with his stirring rendition of Gretchen Peters' lump-in-throat composition, "If Heaven." Griggs pours out his soul on the track and comes mighty close to topping Peters' version. The album closes with Brooks & Dunn's beautiful piano ballad, "It's Getting Better All The Time."
Bring on Totally Country 6.
