What I think are the best country albums of the 90s

If you follow me on Twitter or my Twitter feed over on Facebook you’ll know that all weekend I’ve been on a retro 90s trip. Well more accurately a retro 90s country trip. In fact all weekend I have been playing all my old country CDs and cassette tapes (tapes). Yup if I had the album on tape I did not bother to then go get it on CD. Well now if one of my tapes dos die then it’s time to download it onto my computer in MP3 format. Yes in MP3 format ’cause CDs just like cassette tapes are now on their way out. So you may be thinking what would he say are the best country albums of the 90s? Well even if you’re not asking yourself this question I will answer it for you anyway. How would I determine what are the best country albums of the 90s? Well I could go look up which ones have sold the most copes and rank them accordingly to those figures. But that may not give you any indexation of what I think are the best country albums from the 90s. So then what would? Well if I gave you a list of the ones that I have listened to and continue to listen to the most you may get a better indexation of what I think are the best ones. So here is my list of the 15 best country albums from the 90s.

  1. i’m sorry, but country music is just plain corny.

  2. çeviri I admit some country music is indeed just plane corny. But to insinuate all country is corny as you seem to be doing with your statement is like saying all rock music is all about sex drugs and a general bad boy attitude. As a fan of both country music and rock music I can for sure tell you that this is not the case. Not all country is corny and not all rock glorifies a loose lifestyle full of tons of sex and drug use. In fact have a look at the lyrics to”Too Much Love” a song from one of my favourite country artists the Canadian singer-songwriter Charlie Major. It’s lyrics I would say are like many of the modern country songs heartfelt and deeply real and not at all corny.

    “Too Much Love” By Charlie Major
    I’ve heard that love makes the world go ’round.
    Well, if that’s true, she must be turning real slow.
    Cause these days I find more and more lonely people
    Everywhere I go.
    And they’re reaching out for love, but they can never get enough.
    CHORUS:
    Nobody, nobody gets too much love.
    Nobody, nobody gets too much love.
    Well, it’s never enough; No, it’s never too much;
    Nobody gets too much love.
    Bigger and better in the nineteen nineties
    Has got so many people working their lives away.
    Reaching out for the finer things,
    They’ve found that there’s a price to pay.
    And there reaching out for love, but they can never get enough.
    CHORUS:
    Nobody, nobody gets too much love.
    Nobody, nobody gets too much love.
    Well, it’s never enough; No, it’s never too much;
    Nobody gets too much love.
    A little bit of company, is something everybody needs.
    The touch of a hand, a little romance; someone who understands.
    A nation of young has taken to the streets
    Looking for somewhere they can call their own.
    And they’re running against their will, they’ll say
    Trying to find a home.
    Nobody, nobody gets too much love.
    Nobody, nobody gets too much love.
    Nobody, nobody gets too much love.
    Nobody, nobody gets too much love.
    Well, it’s never enough; No, it’s never too much;
    Nobody gets too much love.
