"Barricades & Brickwalls" Kasey Chambers Our price: $12.99 | You save: $5.99
available here
Her engaging blend of country, folk, and rock has earned Kasey Chambers many comparisons to Lucinda Williams, which is high praise indeed. Williams herself even helps out on a tune here, as does Buddy Miller, Matthew Ryan, and Paul Kelly. Chambers tosses in a Gram Parsons cover and even joins forces with power trio (and fellow Aussies) the Living End.

Check out Chambers's debut, "The Captain"

"Lovesick Broke & Driftin'" Hank Williams III Our price: $13.99 | You save: $3.99
available here
Two parts honky-tonk ( la Senior) and one part country-rock ( la Junior), Hank III's music is brash and bold. Sure, he puts a lot of effort into cultivating his wild-boy, drinkin'-and-fightin' image, but he pulls it off in convincing fashion. "Lovesick" isn't a classic top to bottom, but there are enough brilliant moments here to satisfy any fan of stone country.
Check out Williams's debut, "Risin' Outlaw"

"La Musica De Baldemar Huerta" Freddy Fender Our price: $13.99 | You save: $2.99
available here
Fender's new one is a sparkling Tejano and conjunto affair, proving that the former Baldemar Huerta, who'll turn 65 later this year, can still sing with great expressiveness. This gorgeous record is certainly a crowning achievement for Fender, who is recuperating from a successful kidney transplant.

"Drive" Alan Jackson Our price: $13.29 | You save: $5.69
available here
Jackson's September 11 reflection "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)" has already shot up to No. 1 on the Billboard country chart. The hit studio take appears on Jackson's new album along with a bonus live version recorded at the CMA Awards. Also of note is a duet with George Strait, the barroom weeper "Designated Drinker."

"Great Divide" Willie Nelson Our price: $14.99 | You save: $3.99
available here
Not even Willie Nelson can escape the all-star-duet treatment. Sheryl Crow, Kid Rock, Brian McKnight, Bonnie Raitt, Rob Thomas, and Lee Ann Womack all drop in to see what condition his condition is in.

"Almeria Club Recordings" Hank Williams Jr. Our price: $13.99 | You save: $3.99
available here
Hank Jr. retraces his daddy's steps, recording this album in two of Senior's old haunts: the Almeria Community Club in Alabama and the Louisiana Hayride stage in Shreveport, Louisiana. The nostalgia trip results in some of Bocephus's best work in some time on this raw, blues-drenched roadhouse record. Nickel Creek and Kid Rock (there he is again) each have a guest spot.
