Various Artists – The Songs of Jimmie Rodgers: A Tribute

 
The Songs of Jimmie Rodgers: A Tribute

The likes of Dylan, Mellencamp, Van Morrison, Dwight Yoakam, and many more cover the songs of one of country music’s pioneers. The covers mostly work. There are a few clinkers, but cuts like Steve Earle and the V-Roys “In the Jailhouse Now” salvage the effort easily.
