Greatest Hits

View All Available Formats & Editions


In the '90s, Michelle Wright was among mainstream country's most honored vocalists and most reliable hit makers. She can sing it soft and seductive, or rough it up, and is believable in either mode; and her song selections, as GREATEST HITS attests, have had content as well as irresistible hooks and grooves. "He Would Be Sixteen" is a wrenching account of the questions that haunt an otherwise happy woman who gave up a baby for adoption. "Take It Like a Man" describes a frustrating search for a decent man who understands the nuances of commitment and love. This collection also includes two songs that have never appeared on a Wright album: "When I Found You" is a dreamy love song complete with Babyface lushness, and "Your Love" is a soaring pop country ballad collaboration with Jim Brickman. This is solid, substantive work.
