My country music holdings are pretty limited, but I may have to add this CD set to my collection – that’s quite the lineup. The image below leads to the Amazon page, where you can listen to samples from each track on the disc.
Hollywood music supervisor Randall Poster put together Divided & United: The Songs of the Civil War, a two-disc set in tribute of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Three generations of singers help draw a clear line from the America of the 1860s to today.
Legacy artists on the project include Cowboy Jack Clement, Steve Earle, Vince Gill, Loretta Lynn, Del McCoury, Dolly Parton, Ralph Stanley and Lee Ann Womack, while today’s artists are represented by the likes of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Jamey Johnson, Ashley Monroe, Old Crow Medicine Show, Shoves & Rope, Chris Thile and others.
