NOW is proud to present the very best of Country music with NOW That’s What I Call Country. 4 CD’s jam-packed full of the biggest Country hits of all time!

Dolly Parton kicks off CD 1 with the iconic ‘Jolene’, then over to John Denver’s platinum single ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’. The journey continues with ‘70s chart smashes from Glen Campbell, Crystal Gayle, The Bellamy Brothers, and #1s from Dr Hook and Kenny Rogers. Patsy Cline’s classic ‘Crazy’, Lady Antebellum’s massive track ‘Need You Now’, and Shania Twain’s Grammy-nominated ‘You’re Still The One’ are all included, alongside legendary U.S. hits from Linda Ronstadt and Debby Boone. ‘Stand By Your Man’ by Grammy Hall of Famer Tammy Wynette, is up next before this first disc closes with a run of songs that were equally huge as pop hits, as they were in these country versions, including ‘The Wind Beneath My Wings’, ‘I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing and ‘Always On My Mind’ from Willie Nelson.

CD2 is all about contemporary and pop-crossover Country. Opening with Keith Urban’s double platinum track ‘Somebody Like You’, followed by chart topper Luke Combs with ‘Hurricane’. Chris Stapleton, Little Big Town and Kasey Musgraves with her anthem ‘Rainbow’ follow, ahead of the massive Brit Award nominated ‘Nothing Breaks Like a Heart’ by Mark Ronson & Miley Cyrus, and the fusion of dance-pop and Country that is ‘Dancing’ from Kylie Minogue. Maren Morris, Miranda Lambert, Darius Rucker and Brad Paisley are up next before vocal powerhouses Reba McEntire & Kelly Clarkson with ‘Because Of You’ and the disc is all wrapped up by Lonestar with their enduring radio smash ‘Amazed (Captain Mix)’.

CD3 begins with The Bellamy Brothers ‘Let Your Love Flow’ and continues with a run of huge hits: - Olivia Newton-John’s version of ‘Take Me Home Country Roads’ which takes us on a journey to ‘Rocky Mountain High’ by John Denver, plus Pussycat, Charlie Rich, Anne Murray, Bobbie Gentry and second appearances from Crystal Gayle, Kenny Rogers, Dr Hook and the timeless ‘Wichita Lineman’ from Glen Campbell. The disc moves toward the close with beautiful songs from Charley Pride and Roy Orbison before Elvis Presley brings the nostalgia with his version of the classic ‘Gentle On My Mind’, and finishes with the melancholic heartbreak track ‘End Of The World’ by Skeeter Davis.

The final disc opens with one of the most definitive collaborations of all time between Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers with ‘Islands In The Stream’, before anthemic hits from The Charlie Daniels Band, Billy Ray Cyrus with his debut single and signature song ‘Achy Breaky Heart’, and Shania Twain with her empowering worldwide Country Pop hit ‘Man! I Feel Like A Woman’. Up next, unforgettable gems from LeAnn Rimes and Carrie Underwood with her ‘revenge’ tale ‘Before He Cheats’. Banjo-led Bluegrass from Flatt & Scruggs and Eric Weissberg & Steve Mandell’s ‘Duelling Banjos’ lead into rock crossover gold from Lynyrd Skynyrd and Steve Earle before classics from Hank Williams and Johnny Cash with ’Ring Of Fire’ lead toward the end of this amazing collection which is rounded off by C.W. McCall’s U.S. #1 ‘Convoy’ paying tribute to the CB Radio slang craze of the mid ‘70s.
