    Diamond Rio The Definitive Hits Collection. (2-CD Set)


    Oddly enough for a band that started as an attraction at the Opryland theme park, Diamond Rio turned out to be more authentic and original than most any of their country contemporaries, eschewing session musicians to sing and play everything on just about every song they recorded. Add crisp, multi-part harmony arrangements and excellent songwriting to that streak of homegrown creativity and you had, along with Alabama, the biggest country group of the ‘90s, which The Definitive Hits Collection celebrates by living up to its name with all 31 of the 33 hits Diamond Rio notched during its unparalleled run on the Arista Nashville label. The 40-song set leads off “Meet in the Middle,” the only debut single EVER to hit #1 on the charts, and doesn’t let up with such chart-toppers as “How Your Love Makes Me Feel,” “One More Day,” “Beautiful Mess,” and “I Believe,” plus such favorites as “Love a Little Stronger,” “Walkin’ Away,” “You’re Gone,” and more. Notes by Bill Kopp round out the set, which is freshly remastered by Maria Triana at Battery Studios. By far the biggest and best Diamond Rio collection ever!
