George Jones disciple smilin' Sammy Kershaw was one of the '90s top country stars. This disc contains all 23 of his top 40 hits for the Mercury label (1991-2000).
Sammy's early singles were mostly high-octane efforts like "Cadillac Style," "She Don't Know She's Beautiful," "Third-Rate Romance." His 1997 signature hit "Love Of My Life," however, led him in the direction of country crooner. While it's a gem - as are other ballads like the Lorrie Morgan duet "Maybe Not Tonight" and the heartbreaker "Matches" - the rowdier numbers clearly show that honky-tonkin' is what Sammy does best.
This Definitive collection is just what it claims to be (a rarity in music marketing). It includes more hits than his two collections CHAPTER 1 and CHAPTER 2 combined, with such favorites as "Fit To Be Tied Down," "If You're Gonna Walk, I'm Gonna Crawl," and the philosophical "One Day Left To Live" finally making it onto a Kershaw Anthology. Everyone undoubtably has their favorite album tracks (mine include the rowdy "Louisiana Hot Sauce" and his cover of Sammy Johns' "Chevy Van"). But if you are just looking for the hits, you will never do better than this comprehensive set.

I bought this album primarily for his '97 hit "Love Of My Life"...I was up north in the Yukon and preparing for a nice day-long roadtrip the night before... their local music store was closing and I had to buy a last-minute CD for some good tunes - so I picked Sammy Kershaw, and boy was it ever worth it! "Yard Sale" is one of my favourites, among a few others. Overall, great CD...one of my personal favourites in my whole collection and has somewhat more or less converted me into a new Sammy Kershaw fan. Well worth the money. Definately a great alternative and relief to what I hear mostly on the "country" radio stations nowadays...

Sammy Kershaw lives the songs he sings, and brings those songs to life with his honest, pure, soulful country voice. He IS the every man, singing songs every man and woman can understand, relate to and appreciate. He pours himself into each and every song which only helps bind the connections of those songs to each person listening. His robust style, great voice, and immense talent lend themselves to his music, tying the hearts, emotions and memories of the listeners together just as though he was singing them directly to us, or for us. Music has had great singers/performers in history, but none have surpassed Sammy in the last 30 years!

What country music really is not that stuff that passes for country now. Along with George Jones by the way Sammy was discovered by George when Sammy was 14. Do pick up Sammy's New cd Do you know me? A fantastic amazing tribute to George. Merle Haggard, Randy Travis, Alan Jackson, George Straight. an,d groups like Alabamba, Restless Heart, Exile Pure Prarie league. Who country radio other than sirus xm radio refuses to play. This is country heart and soul. Cd spans Sammy's career from the beginning including duets with his ex wife the great Lorrie Morgan. Sammy covers the Amazing Rhythm Aces Third Rate Romance better than the original ditto Sammy John's Chevy van. Cd worth the price just for the Beautiful song Love of my life. This cd will never leave the cd changer.

This CD contains some great songs and the production of this music is of very high quality. I would strongly recommend it to anyone who loves Country Music. I also enjoyed the insert in the CD that explains the story behind some of the songs. I have really enjoyed this CD.

Sammy's music grows on you! "Cadillac Style" and "Queen of my Double wide" gets your attention, while "Southbound" and "Haunted heart" keeps it!

This came out in the early 90's, before country fully went pop, Sammy Kershaw has an old style of singing taking you back a bit with each song
