    Bring your hankie. [29 Sep 2006, p.80]
  3. Quite simply, Nashville is a necessary addition to the collection of anyone who respects the tradition of great singing and storytelling.
  4. This is the kind of album that clicks right off but continues to grow on you.
  5. Uncut

    Burke... intuitively transforms a bunch of country tunes into gospel rave-ups and secular hymns. [Nov 2006, p.101]
  6. Mojo

    Burke's prodigious talent and larger-than-life presence ensures the big name cameos don't steal his thunder. [Nov 2006, p.102]

    [A] heartfelt tribute to country music. [Dec 2006, p.133]
  8. At 66, Burke might have lost some vocal force and fullness, but his singing is agile, elastic and, most important, packed with sorrow and humor that pull you in no matter what the genre.
  9. This is a keeper, one of those records that you'll still be listening to in ten years.
  10. Vibe
    70
    It's all tasteful retro treatment for a '60s soul icon, but Burke approaches it with brio. [Nov 2006, p.165]
  11. Luminaries such as Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch and Dolly Parton also make appearances -- but it's always clear who's sitting on the throne.
