And it was much better than I expected. The Chipmunks are not the kind of act I would listen to very often but they make a change from conventional singers. Originally, I steered well clear of their music but they turned up as guests on (for example Christmas albums by Alan Jackson and Jaci Velasquez so I got used to them that way. There are some good original songs together with some entertaining covers, sometimes featuring the original singer.
Guests featured on their own songs are Billy Ray Cyrus (Achy breaky heart), Aaron Tippin (There ain't nothing wrong with the radio, Tammy Wynette (Stand by your man), Alan Jackson (Don't rock the jukebox) and Waylon Jennings (Outlaws - my favorite track here). Charlie Daniels also puts in a guest appearance, but on an original song - Brothers and old boots. There are two covers of Mary Chapin Carpenter songs - Down at the Twist and Shout and I feel lucky - but Mary does not put in a guest appearance.
The other three songs are all originals without guests. Country pride is one of those name-dropping songs paying homage to country singers old and new. Gotta believe in pumpkins at first appears to be a piece of nonsense, but it has a serious message about faith and hope. I ain't no dang cartoon appears to be autobiographical.
If you have not heard the Chipmunks, I recommend that you hear some of their music before considering buying any of their music. If you enjoy their other music, your enjoyment of this album will depend on whether you like country music or not.
