Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn don't just play the hillbilly card on their calculated new disc, they slam it down on the table like someone in a bad western. The multiplatinum pair scoot their pricey boots honky-tonk style through most of the 13 tracks, typified by the Dunn-Terry McBride romp "Play Something Country," on which they sing about a female bar patron who's "a whiskey-drinkin', cowboy-chasin' hell of a time/I like Kenny, Keith, Alan and Patsy Cline." "I May Never Get Over You," which does have some thoughtful moments, is about as close as the boys get to a ballad. Deluxe this isn't.
