There have been many pop artists who have done country to make a genre album (q.v. the Byrds' Sweethearts Of The Rodeo), or recording a song in that style (e.g. the Rolling Stones' "Faraway Eyes," Rod Stewart's "You're In My Heart," and Lionel Richie's "Deep River Woman," but they did nothing to advance the artist/group's career. One artist who did a tasteful country album was Nancy Sinatra.
The steel guitar and sound are there, but done without the cheesy twang, instrumentally and vocally. I don't remember Hee-Haw signing her up as a regular, so there's proof right there. Nancy's able to tackle ballads like "Walk Through This World With Me," Hank Cochran's "When It's Over," and heel-kickers such as the rollicking "Get While The Getting's Good" and the anti-loneliness anthem "Lay Some Happiness On Me." Nothing rough and loud like Hank Williams Jr. or about pickup trucks, barbecues, spouse abuse, or divorces here. Well, okay, there is "By The Way (I Still Love You)," about a ex-couple meeting up again and catching up.
There is the usual balance between happiness and loneliness. Right after "Lay Some Happiness," there follows "Lonely Again." Later on, her duet with Lee Hazlewood, "Oh Lonesome Me" is countered by "Help Stamp Out Loneliness."
I've heard "Jackson" so many times, maybe because it's on three different NS albums--Hit Years, this one, and Movin' With Nancy, plus I've heard the Pansy Division's punk/homosexual version of it. Anyway, Nancy and Lee belt this number out. The lyrics ridiculing a man's macho image work to a tee. "Go play your hand you big talkin' man, make a big fool of yourself." and "When I breeze into that city, people are gonna stoop and bow. All them woman gonna make me, teach them what they don't know how.

4.0 out of 5 stars Country, Nancy's way...The only way! December 18, 1999
Format:Audio CD
"Country, My Way" (1967) is a unique concept album by '60s icon Nancy Sinatra. Lee Hazlewood, producer of twang-guitarist Duane Eddy, penned many of Nancy's songs, most have them containing a heavy country flavor. Country music gained in popularity in the 1960s. Many more country stars were crossing over to the pop charts and vice versa. "Jackson," the hit off this record had been a #1 country hit for Johnny Cash & June Carter in '66 (for which they won a Grammy). So, when Nancy & Lee recorded it (becoming their highest-charting duet), it was only fitting that an entire album of country be produced. In the liner notes, Nancy comments that she "loves country music" and "always have." The finished product is an eclectic mix of country/pop classics. Most of the songs are garnished in twang, so if you're not accustomed to this kind of country music (the original, old-style country) as opposed to today's country (which, for all intensive purposes could be called "pop"), it may take a few listens to digest the sound. Ironically, most of the songs are NOT written by Hazlewood, but rather are cover versions of popular country songs of the day. Highlights include the cute "It's Such A Pretty World Today" (recently featured in the movie "Desert Blue"), the rousing "Get While The Gettin's Good," "Jackson," and "When It's Over." A second Nancy & Lee duet featured here is a wonderful cover version of the popular Don Gibson song "Oh, Lonesome Me. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars "Nancy- My Way" April 23, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I can honestly say that I love every album that Nancy Sinatra has recorded. Each has its own special "flavor" and sound and atmosphere. Her first, "Boots" has a unique and classic sound/delivery which will keep it alive forever. But my favorite Nancy Sinatra album is this her "Nancy Sinatra- Country My Way"
Recorded in Nashville during a classic period of Nashville songwriting and production, nancy proves that a city girl IS country! She doesn't just play at singing "hillbilly cowboy music"- she captured the real spirit and feel of country music in every sense. When she sings my favorite track on the album, "It's Such A Pretty World Today"- well, the world does become alot prettier, no matter what else is going on to the contrary. When she delivers "Walk Through This World With Me", you really believe her. . . and you'd really want to walk through this world with her. Then there's the up-tempt march for happiness: "Lay Some Happiness On Me"! And she does.
I loved this album a-way back when and I love it still and I'll probably always loved it. I know generations from now, if this album is still available (and it will be) it will be loved by future Nancy Sinatra fans. Thanks Nancy for all the music of our lives!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 60's Country by a Non-Country Artist July 14, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What a great album! As a kid growing up in the 60's, I was a fan of country music (which my dad liked), pop (which my mom liked), and rock (which my older brothers liked). Nancy Sinatra was one of those artists that could do pretty much any of it, and in this album she brings only a smidge of her pop/rock flavor to a very solid country music album. The collection reflects efforts of some of the biggest Nashville composers of the time (Carl Belew, Hank Cochran, Bill Anderson, Don Gibson) and covers of some of the biggest artists (George Jones, Skeeter Davis, Johnny Cash & June Carter). Somebody, either Nancy or Lee Hazelwood, did their homework and put out a very credible country album. I listened to it hundreds of times on vinyl and the CD version is that much better, although the bonus tracks don't really fit the original tunestack. If you liked Nancy or love classic country from that era, you'll like/love this album.
