Editor's note: an upbeat, twangy, vibratto stomp fest of favorites, classics and often heard staples. There's also a kind of indie rock feel to much of this which kind of makes me wonder why they are the Tennessee guitars as opposed to any other state other than it was made in Nashville. There are plenty of these compilation guitar records out there and most stick to the plan of making something good excel with the focus on the guitar. It's pretty country simple when you think of it. I wonder how profitable they were as a business enterprise though.
