The end result is a collection that provides a compelling argument that contemporary country music doesn't need to divorce itself from its history. It also makes a solid case for the radio accessibility of Americana and alt-country. Most of the music here -- Britton's elegant ''Buried Under,'' her duet with Panettiere on ''Wrong Song,'' and Panettiere's duet with Esten on ''Undermine'' use contemporary country tropes, without sacrificing soul for production sheen. In other words, it's both the singer and the song that hook a listener.
Virtually all of these instruments (especially drums and percussion) sound warm and natural, and serve to accent and support the vocals rather than overwhelm them. Panettiere's ''Love Like Mine,'' and her performance on the radio mix of ''Telescope'' would likely chart if they were released as singles. Americana numbers such as the Civil Wars' ''If I Didn't Know Better,'' performed by Palladino and Bowen, scored big on YouTube and prompted numerous Twitter conversations. So too the rootsy version of ''Telescope,'' performed by Lennon & Maisy Stella (aged nine and twelve, who play Britton's daughters on the series), with only an acoustic guitar for accompaniment. ''Twist of Barbwire,'' performed by Jonathan Jackson (Avery), is a tom-tom and whammy bar-driven rocker with just enough twang to make it walk between rockabilly and alt country. It probably doesn't hurt that it was written by Elvis Costello. Esten's ''Sideshow'' is a lovely ballad that walks dead center between Americana and contemporary country.
Usually, soundtracks for television shows are a mixed bag at best. The Music of Nashville is a very notable exception.

Other than that (which is a major one to me .. the song should have been included), it's a good CD.
Post T-Bone Burnett Post: Thank you so much for making it right. You didn't have to do it ... but I so appreciate that you did. YOU are the reason the music is so good on the show. You're gift of song selection has never been more apparent than on this project. The artists are fantastic, but it all starts with great material. You, sir, are the master at finding good material. Hats off to you!!
Why did I give it only four stars?
Well, it is missing the best song, Fade Into You, from the series! I wonder why it wasn't included! Maybe it was only on the deluxe version that I saw in a Target ad. The problem is that I don't have a Target near by. It would have been nice it the producers released all 29 songs from the first eight episodes onto a two-disc set.
Overall, I loved the eleven songs that are on the Volume One Soundtrack.
The Complete Track List:
1. Buried Under (3:03/ Connie Britton)
2. If I Didn't Know Better (2:57/ Sam Palladio, Clare Bowen)
3. Undermine (3:59/ Hayden Panettiere, Charles Esten)
4. Sideshow (3:03/ Charles Esten)
5. Wrong Song (3:10/ Connie Britton, Hayden Panettiere)
6. No One Will Every Love You (3:42/ Connie Britton, Charles Esten)
7. Twist of Barbwire (3:04/ Jonthan Jackson)
8. Love Like Mine (3:22/ Hayden Panettiere)
9. Telescope (2:27/ Lennon Stella, Maisy Stella)
10. When The Right One Comes Along (3:49/ Clare Bowen, Sam Palladio)
11. Telescope (Radio Mix/ 3:17/ Hayden Panettiere)
I was going to just buy Wrong Song which I love and I have replayed on my DVR a few times so that I could listen over and over, but then I decided to listen to a preview of all songs, and there were more that I wanted than I did not.
Buried Under - Connie Britton - Love it
If I Didn't Know Better - Clare Bowen & Sam Palladio - A Favorite - Haunting and sticks with you
Love Like Mine - Hayden Panettiere - Love it
No One Will Ever Love You - Connie Britton & Charles Eston - Classic sound - Also Love it
Sideshow - Charles Eston - Good again more classic sound (Don Williamsish)
Telescope - Hayden Panettiere - Acoustic - Not so much but prefer Radio Mix
Telescope - Radio Mix - Hayden Panettiere - Love it
Twist of Barbwire - Jonathan Jackson - It is ok - it is an Avery song, and I think he is a little too "breathy" for my taste, but it is ok
Undermine - Hayden Panettiere & Charles Eston - Love it!!!! Replay it alot :)
When the Right One Comes Along - Clare Bowen & Sam Palladio - I just love Clare's voice!
Wrong Song - Connie & Hayden - Total Female power kick butt song - love to crank in car and bounce along
Overall it is a great album, there are only 2 songs I skip over, and it has everything for every mood. When I want reflective I go to If I didn't Know Better, When the Right one Comes Along, if I am looking for classic country I go to - Sideshow & No one Will Ever love you, Female kick butt - Wrong Song :).
Great songs and any album I only skip 2 songs on is a 5 - normally it 3 or 4.
"Fade into you". The sticker on the label says the song is on the CD,
however when you look at the song list on the back, it is not listed. Shady.
Where are "Fade Into You" and "I Will Fall?" Gunner And Scarlet are central to the show so the album should contain more of their music. Rayna's girls are adorable but I'd trade the novelty of their alternate version of "Telescope" for Scarlet's version of "(Love's) Burning Ring of Fire"-- which isn't available on Amazon as a single -- any day.
This is part of an unfortunate trend: same thing happened with the "Smash" album, which was also missing several fan favorites. The only reason I can think of for missing songs is that ABC wants you to purchase the individual mp3's in addition to the album. Fans would be happy to pay $20 for a double album of all the songs... but ABC makes more money by gouging you for each mp3. Greedy, greedy.

These albums are pretty hard to come by out here in Australia so I couldn't be bothered until season 3's came out to track these early ones down when I got those. Read morePublished 1 month ago by James N Simpson
