The fact one can create a reggae version of just about any song is nothing new and without the musical influences from the United States (which reggae musician was not influenced by the soul of Curtis Mayfield and his Impressions) the Jamaican music landscape might have looked very different. Country and reggae have never been the best of friends (the collaboration of Toots Hibbert with country legends like Willie Nelson and Bonnie Raitt being the exception that proves the rule) and that is somewhat strange since both genres are quite similar in many aspects: both reggae and country are often referred to as "reality music", relating the fate of the common man and amateurs of both genres don't mind a nice love ballad once in a while. Perhaps the gap between redneck and Rasta was just too deep, something VP Records now wants to change with 'Reggae's Gone Country' for which they invited a variety of Jamaican artists to reinterpret some well-known country songs. Busy Signal delivers a successful spin on Kenny Rogers' 'The Gambler' and Luciano's version of Jim Reeves' 'He'll Have To Go' isn't bad either, but the gold medal this time goes to Tessanne Chin whose 'Don't It Make My Brown Eyes' is a delicious lovers rock version of the well-known hit by Crystal Gayle.
