The Critics Give It 5 Stars CD review - The Critics Give It 5 Stars
There have been a few country disc jockeys who have gone onto have successful careers as country singers - Bill Anderson and John Conlee being probably the most famous examples - but judging by this CD, Bobby Bones is unlikely to join that contingent.
