John Anderson burst on the country music scene in the late '70s as one of the first of the new breed of singers known as "new traditionalists." They were dedicated to playing country the way Hank and Merle and Lefty did, and to keeping the traditions of real country alive. This collection of hits by Anderson focuses on his time at BNA Records in the 1990s. His hitmaking days had seemed over before he joined BNA, but soon he found himself back at the top of the charts. Collected here are his two number ones, "Straight Tequila Night" and "Money in the Bank"; the title track to his double platinum record, Seminole Wind; five more Top Ten hits; and five rare B-Sides. This disc is an ideal compilation of 1990s John Anderson and is highly recommended to lovers of traditional country music. ~ Tim Sendra
