In the late '50s the Nashville sound hit the airwaves as producers replaced honky-tonk's fiddles and steel guitars with string sections and vocal choirs, launching a new golden age of country music. Some of the greatest country vocalists of all time – Patsy Cline, George Jones, Don Gibson, Jim Reeves, Marty Robbins, and more - pioneered this more polished, modern sound in the '50s and '60s, and influenced later artists, including Glen Campbell, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton, and Tammy Wynette. And the refined songs that emanated from this time were more than just beautiful melodies - they've become true classics.
This historic 10-disc set captures the magic of that golden age and features 150 beloved tracks including Charlie Rich's "Behind Closed Doors," Charley Pride's "Kiss an Angel Good Mornin'," "Don't it Make My Brown Eyes Blue" by Crystal Gayle, Glen Campbell's "By the Time I Get to Phoenix", "Islands in the Stream" from Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton, Tanya Tucker's "Delta Dawn" and many more. The complete set also includes two bonus CDs of sweet country ballads by Eddy Arnold, Johnny Cash, Lefty Frizzell, and more as well as a full-color booklet packed with photos and stories about the artists and their music.
Music segments from the compilation are being broadcast nationally via a long-form television program hosted by country icons Charley Pride and Crystal Gayle. These chart-topping legends, reminisce about the "Golden Era" of country and the performers who laid the groundwork for many of today's country music stars.
"Listening to these wonderful country songs brings back many special memories. I enjoy having all of these classics in a single collection. And I think most other country music fans would like it too," says Pride.
"I love the songs on COUNTRY MUSIC OF YOUR LIFE and I'll never get tired of listening to them. These classics sound every bit as wonderful today as when they were climbing the charts," remarks Gayle.
"These are beautiful ballads that have stood the test of time," says Mitch Peyser, Time Life Executive Producer. "And there's clearly still a tremendous demand for the traditional country sounds that COUNTRY MUSIC OF YOUR LIFE delivers."
Marc Angell, CEO of Music of Your Life, adds, "We're very excited to see our brand on another Time Life direct response television campaign and on this timeless collection of country classics."
