Songs of Love and Heartache

Given that most Alan Jackson songs are songs of love and heartache, this career-spanning compilation doesn’t shed too much new light on his body of work (granted, any songs about cars and food are conspicuous in their absence). Still, Songs of Love and Heartache is a pleasant reminder of Alan’s way with a love song—from his career-igniting “Here in the Real World” to a remake of 2006’s “A Woman’s Love.” Two previously unreleased cuts fit in fine, especially the sweet ballad “That’s What I’d Be Like Without You.” (Available at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and crackerbarrel.com.)
