    Other than the FGL entry, not a bad group of songs , with “Whoever’s In New England” being one of Reba’s three or four best songs. “Distant Drums” reached #1 about two years after Jim Reeves’ death/ It was a huge hit on the pop charts in the UK as well

    That bicentennial entry was Cash’s last solo #1, though he did have two more #1’s on the country album chart since his death. (“American V” actually topped the full, all-genre chart.)
