The Definitive Collection

Review This journeyman country singer hails from the same East Texas stomping grounds that produced honky-tonk greats George Jones and Mark Chesnutt. Tracy Byrd puts a slightly smoother, more contemporary spin on his twang and has yet to forge a musical identity as distinctive as the aforementioned masters. Yet his expansive, burnished baritone can effortlessly fill the dance floor with feet or your beer with tears. Versatility is the operative word with this vibrant, somewhat uneven 11-track collection that surveys the commercial high-water marks of Byrd's seven-year recording career. With assured confidence, he covers all the dancehall mood swings, from the rollicking humor of "Watermelon Crawl" and "Lifestyles of the Not So Rich and Famous" to the world-weariness of "Heaven in My Woman's Eyes" and the romantic dreaminess of "Keeper of the Stars." Byrd's only sin is that at times he makes it all sound a little bit too easy. --Bob Allen

Ultimate Aaron Tippin

Review Like most every other talented contemporary singer, Byrd constantly maneuvers through a treacherous minefield: Music Row's insistence on compromises to assure "a wider audience" (read: radio airplay). He's faced that dilemma on nearly all of his albums, which include a couple of gems amid a bed of marginal, trite, or even unlistenable material. A bit of the latter leaks into the mix this time as well--the banality of "How'd I Wind Up in Jamaica" and a live version of "Ten Rounds with Jose Cuervo" reflect Nashville's obsessions with Jimmy Buffett-flavored fare. However, it's uphill from there. The title track (with Andy Griggs, Montgomery Gentry, and Blake Shelton) both celebrates and spoofs macho stereotypes. Portraits of small-town life in "Tiny Town" and "That's What Keeps Her Getting By" do far more to reflect Byrd's heart and substance. Even the barroom singalong "Drinkin' Bone" succeeds by fusing an animated vocal with a crackling arrangement (think the Rolling Stones' "Honky Tonk Women"). Beyond the throwaways, it's reassuring that, overall, Byrd's understated poignancy, sensitivity, and swagger-with-a-wink prove triumphant. --Rich Kienzle

16 Biggest Hits

Review Despite his ability to garner two greatest-hits packages (the former was on another label), the baritone-rich Tracy Byrd hasn't been able to shake his lightweight status, mostly because his forte is danceable novelty songs, as with "The Truth About Men," and estrogen-stirring ballads ("Just Let Me Be in Love"). Both of those tunes appear here, one right after the other, as if to show the dual side of the handsome Texan's personality. If the former reinforces the stereotype of men as football- and sex-obsessed goons, the Latin-flavored "...Love" presents the ideal male as a true-hearted romantic who lives for pheromone highs. Byrd is equally adept at embodying both extremes, but he's even better when he goes outside these roles with songs like Keith Stegall's "Tiny Town," which lets him wax nostalgic about something real. This second greatest-hits package contains new--if less fetchingly recorded versions--of "Watermelon Crawl" and "I'm from the Country," as well as two brand-new songs. "Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman," already a single, plants Byrd squarely back in cartoon territory, while the rockin' "Johnny Cash" proves to be less about the Man in Black than the saga of a hot-headed prole feeling his oats. Still, the latter is another step outside the box, something Byrd desperately needs to push for more often. --Alanna Nash

Tradition Lives

Review Though his baritone is one of the brawnier voices in contemporary country, Tracy Byrd is a softie at heart. At least such is the impression left by the Texan's seventh album (and first for RCA), filled with midtempo balladry that showcases his sensitive side. Whether he's testifying to the love that survives a marital split on "Put Your Hand in Mine," reminding himself to stop and smell the roses on the title cut, or celebrating the redemptive support of a good woman on "Proud of Me," Byrd sings with a conviction that makes the most sentimental cliché ring true. The Texas shuffle of "Undo the Right" and the Cajun-spiced "Something to Brag About" (with Wayne Toups on accordion) provide dance-floor-friendly changes of pace. --Don McLeese
