    "Greatest Hits"

    Country continues this week (Keith Urban was chosen last week), with Clay Walker. His musical style is very laid back, as he had 6 #1 songs in the 1990s: "What's It To You," (1993), "Live Until I Die" (1994), "Dreaming With My Eyes Open" (1994), "If I Could Make A Living" (1994), "This Woman And This Man" (1995), and "Rumour Has It" (1997). All of these #1's are on his Greatest Hits, a 14-song collection.

    With the #1's aside, there are some very impressive songs here. Yet alone, the #1's are great songs, "This Woman And This Man" and "Rumour Has It" are the ones I enjoy from his #1 songlist. You're Beginning To Get To Me" is laid back, almost to some of Alan Jackson, yet Walker's voice is more gentler. Speaking of, "Hypnotize The Moon" could easily have been another #1; it's a great gentler softer Country sounding song. "Dreaming With My Eyes Open" is another good song. "Then What" has an almost Jimmy Buffett style, yet more Country as well. "Where Do I Fit In The Picture" is another laid back softer song, Alan Jackson comes to mind on "If I Could Make A Living", "Ordinary People" has the softer side again, "Only On Days That End In "Y" is another good honky-tonk'er, "Watch This" is another slow-paced tune, and "Who Need You Baby" compares to the uptempo Alan Jackson.

    Compared to the likes of Alan Jackson, Clay Walker had some very fine Country music. Although his name may not be as outstanding as Jackson's, his music is very entertaining, and easily fits the recent Country styles. Having all of his #1's and more, it's a good collection for those interested in Clay Walker's music.
