Various Artists

Southern rock and country music; Charlie Daniels, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker, Names that are familiar to fans of both genres of music, because they are essentially the same: great, well-written, well-delivered songs of the working man, his life, his family, and everything he stands for.

The common thread here are the great country singers: from Charlie Daniels to James Otto, singing songs that they've been covering for years. Listen as Tracy Byrd rip into "If You Wanna Get to Heaven;" be mesmerized as Billy Currington revives "Keep Your Hands to Yourself." Brian McComas takes the Pure Prairie League classic "Amie" and makes it his own; Charlie Daniels brings "Sweet Home Alabama" to a new level; Mark Chesnutt puts his honky-tonk stamp on "Heard It In a Love Song;" and Anita Cochran, with the help of Jason Sellers, belts out "Can't You See."

The fact is, whether you're a fan of country or rock, you're gonna love this CD (heck, if you've seen some of these people live, you've probably already heard these songs). From familiar country stars to newcomers, from Allman Brothers classics to a song by the Black Crowes, Southern Rock Country Style is a compelling, rockin' good CD filled with great music by great artists.
