After switching management, watching their label fold, and welcoming Jay DeMarcus' baby daughter, the title Changed makes sense, though it still boasts the harmony-laden country pop fans love to the tune of 21 million albums sold. The lyrics are deeper and more poignant: The title track, a joyful testament to the power of saying sorry and starting over, packs a powerful, uplifting punch. The anthemic "Great Big Love" celebrates a love so strong it gets you through the bad times -- corny on paper, but the harmony-kissed chorus erases any doubts. Try "Let It Hurt," "Banjo" and "Friday," too.
