    All great songs although David and Shelly, Alabama, and Zac Brown Band have my favorite songs here. The Marty Robbins entry is a classic, and Jessica Andrews’ song has always been infectious fun. You really can’t go wrong with any of them.

    I’m glad to see “Colder Weather” holds up so well in the company of all these other classics

    “You’re The Reason God Made Oklahoma” is one of my all-time favorites.
