Beyond Country: The Best of Alt Country

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Zac Johnson
Subtitling this compilation The Best of Alt-Country would lead listeners to believe that there might actually be some alternative country performers on the CD. Okay, maybe that's a bit harsh, but while Alison Krauss, Jerry Jeff Walker, Buck Owens, John Hiatt, and Don Williams are all spectacular performers, lumping them in as alt-country seems to be missing the mark.
