5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Classic Country Record October 26, 2012
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
The intent is fully realized: a loving tribute to one of the greatest country songwriters, headed by a superb country artist and supported by one of the most impressive all-star casts ever assembled. The result is not only a tribute to classic country music itself, but perhaps the best introduction possible to one of the treasures of classic country music.
Jamey Johnson lives the songs of Hank Cochran so honestly, one would think he wrote them himself. He displays the great difference between singing a song and channeling the emotion, and every guest artist on the album matches Johnson's depth and nuance.
Not everyone can listen to decades old recordings of original artists and consider them anything but a piece of history. The greatness of this album is that Jamey Johnson and cohorts bring these fantastic songs to a new audience, and in doing so make them sound not merely new, but timeless.
For my money, this is one of the best albums of the year of any genre. My highest recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The music from my Texas roots October 19, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This is the country music I grew up with, listening to my sisters and Daddy singing together. Country/Western music today is barely a shadow of the beauty and heartache of these songs, thank you Jamey!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back in time October 17, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I received this cd yesterday after waiting what seemed like forever. This is so unbelievably wonderful. True country. Takes you back to real country music not this pop so called country music. I can count on one hand the country artists that are true country artists today and Jamey is for sure country. Wouldnt expect anything less from Jamey. Definitely think i will be listening to this one over and over again! This is so worth the purchase!.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely One of the Best CDs of 2012 December 14, 2012
By Texican
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With an all-star cast of legends on board, Jamey brings to life some of the best songs from Cochran's catalog, including some of his lesser known material. Willie and Merle are both extremely strong vocally and, of course, King George knocks one out of the park with "The Eagle" (certainly not a conventional choice given Strait has taken a number of Cochran's songs to the top ten over his career).

If you're interested in discovering or rediscovering some of the most important songs in the genre's history, this album is the ticket. I can only hope that Jamey will continue to write, cover and collaborate on this level for many years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now This Is Country October 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Hank Cochran is one of the finest songwriters the country genre has ever known, there is no doubt about that. This album from Jamey Johnson is a tribute in the purest sense of the word and should be listened to by anyone who appreciates true country music. As a matter of fact, if anyone wants to know exactly WHAT pure country music is they should listen to this album. This is the kind of country I heard growing up when my dad would play albums from Waylon, Willie, Kris, Merle and so on. The fact that we get to hear Willie, Kris and Merle here is just a bonus as Jamey Johnson has as pure a country voice as there is.

When I turn on country radio these days I have to wonder just how we got so far away from music like this so fast. I'm not saying there isn't some good music still being made, but it's now a rarity to find someone making an album like this that is cut from the old school country music cloth. I found myself smiling as every new track came out of my speakers as I remembered just how good a steel guitar and a raspy voice could sound.

The bottom line on this one is buy it, it's a perfect tribute to one of the greatest songwriters around and it's a perfect primer for anyone who thinks country music is what they're playing on the radio today. Thank you Jamey Johnson for keeping the flame alive!

5.0 out of 5 stars thanks to all those associated with this project October 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Like many, I first became aware of Hank Cochran through his wonderful songs performed by the great Patsy Cline. Having grown up in the rock generation of the late sixties and seventies, I remember several conversations with friends about the great songwriters. Dylan, Lennon, Young would all immediately be brought up but i would always say "Don't forget about Hank Cochran", which would usually draw quizzical looks. After rattling off several of the classic Hank-Patsy songs, friends would say "One guy wrote ALL those?". I was especially happy to see the Hank revival in the early 90's with several of the emerging alt-country bands covering Hank songs. From Ray Price and Buck Owens to Hazeldine and American Paint, Hank has always been there (a true favorite of mine is the Hazeldine cover of It's Only Love - surprised that song didn't show up here). As for this tribute, wow! The magnitude of this all star cast exemplifies the admiration, appreciation and love the true bloods of Americana music have for an amazing person and songwriter, the likes of which we will probably never see again. Thanks to Jamey Johnson, the wonderful musicians on this CD, the production staff (all top notch) but most of all thanks to Hank Cochran for leaving us a lifetime of songs that will live on forever.
