Now That’s What I Call the USA

The latest in a long line of patriotic-themed country albums, this 17-track disc runs the gamut from songs celebrating the benefits of red-white-and-blue residency (Brooks & Dunn’s “Only in America”) to more somber reflections like Trace Adkins’ “Arlington” and Tim McGraw’s “If You’re Reading This.” Many of the songs here, such as Montgomery Gentry’s “My Town,” focus more on small-town perks than the pluses of being a card-carrying American. Now-perennial patriotic favorites such as Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the U.S.A.” and Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Some Gave All” are also included. A vocal quartet comprised of combat veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, 4Troops, contributes acoustic versions of Toby Keith’s “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue” and “The Star-Spangled Banner.” A nice gift for your favorite flag-waving country fan.
