Kickin' it Country, SingStar style!
While we were out and about yesterday (Saturday), I ran into GameStop to see if they had the new SingStar Country game. I haven't been able to find it anywhere. Evidently, there are quite a few closet SingStar folks out there!
Well, GameStop had it, and they had it at the same price Wal-Mart showed on the empty shelf! Plus, GameStop had Legends and Pop2. I decided to go with Legends.
I have to say, Country is awesome! Almost every song on the game is a hit, and it covers current charters like Jewel, Taylor Swift, Lady-A, and goes back to Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash. If you have never had the chance to karaoke to Cash, you need to try it once in your life. His talk/singing is VERY difficult to mimic in-time, on-key. Okay, well, it was for me, anyway... :-)
No matter how you cut it though, SingStar Country is one of the best add-ons for the game.
Here is the songlist:
Alan Jackson - "Chattahoochee"
Kellie Pickler - "Red High Heels"
Alan Jackson - "Good Time"
Kenny Chesney - "Big Star"
Big & Rich - "Save A Horse (Ride a Cowboy)"
Lady Antebellum - "Love Don't Live Here"
Blake Shelton - "Home"
Martina McBride - "A Broken Wing"
Brad Paisley - "Online"
Montgomery Gentry - "My Town"
Brooks & Dunn - "Boot Scootin' Boogie"
Montgomery Gentry - "What Do Ya Think About That?"
Brooks & Dunn w/ Reba McEntire - "If You See Him/If You See Her"
Rascall Flats - "Bless the Broken Road"
Bucky Covington - "It's Good To Be Us"
Sara Evans - "Born to Fly"
Faith Hill - "Red Umbrella"
Taylor Swift - "Our Song"
Gretchen Wilson - "Red Neck Woman"
Terri Clark - "Girls Lie Too"
Jewel - "Stronger Woman"
Trace Adkins - "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk"
Johnny Cash - "A Boy Named Sue"
Trace Adkins - "You're Gonna Miss This"
Johnny Cash - "I Walk the Line"
Willie Nelson - "Pancho and Lefty"
Josh Turner - "Another Try"
Jessica Simpson - "Come on Over"
Keith Urban - "Days Go By"
Miranda Lambert - "Kerosene"
Legends has some good songs on it, but we did not know several of the songs (maybe I should have bought Pop-2 instead. Oh well, we'll get that one day anyway!!)
Some of the people ARE legends. Others, we had to wonder just how their name and "Legend" was even in the same breath... Like the Johnny Cash songs, singing Patsy Cline's "Crazy" on-key, on-tempo proved to be difficult, but often hilarious.
Like all SingStar games, if you know the words to the songs, you can concentrate on just hitting the notes and lengths of notes... If you don't know the words, you'll screw yourself trying to read the words and hit the length/pitch all at the same time... Which is why we love playing in the first place!! :-)

Barry White - "You're The First, The Last, My Everything"
