    1999 lets the side down this week.

    That Conway Twitty song features his best vocal ever IMO.

    The Conway one is great! Mark Wills, though? Big Ooops! An embarrassment for 1999.

    Not a bad slate – even the Mak WIlls song is okay . “Lovesick Blues” is, of course, the real classic among this bunch
