The Ultimate Country Concert
by Jim Allen | July 15, 2013
When great country singers take to the stage, it's about more than putting on a show: Country has always been about communicating straight from the heart and soul, so they're putting their entire existence on the line, if they're doing it right. Maybe the heightened stakes are part of the reason why there tend to be fewer live albums released in the country realm than there are in, say, rock or blues. So when a live country album makes an impact, it's a deep one. Here's a heap of the hardest-hitting live cuts featuring Nashville's finest through the decades. From Waylon and Willie to Eric Church and Toby Keith, it's like the ultimate country festival come to life, with an era-spanning array of country icons giving their all, right in your living room.
