While Nashville's "country for kids" campaign has largely been a bust, this 12-year-old plows fearlessly and headlong into anything and everything thrown his way. Tammy Wynette's classic "'Til I Can Make It on My Own" doesn't faze him. Neither do cotton-candy pop oldies ("Little Things" and "Little Bitty Pretty One"), oddball novelties ("The Snake Song"), or inspirational fare ("There's a Hero"). His credible delivery of "Oklahoma," the moving tale of one boy's trip to meet a long-vanished father, is a fine performance that transcends his age. Don't blame him for the weak spots. Credit for the cookie-cutter arrangements and such soggy ballads as the preachy title track goes to multiple producers Don Cook (Music Row's dean of formulaic production), David Malloy, and Blake Chancey. As always, their goals are to satisfy the one-dimensional country-radio consultants who dictate what gets played, nothing more. Long ago, producers Owen Bradley and Billy Sherrill helped Brenda Lee and Tanya Tucker, respectively, build youthful success into enduring adult careers. If only young Gilman had such visionaries enhancing his talent. --Rich Kienzle

I actually do have the ase and front and back covers, but I listed it as disc only because the case is cracked in about 6 different places 3 small cracks and 2 big ones on front, and one med. crack on the back. I will mail it in the case but I did not want to post it as having a case since it was so cracked. Thank you.

This would be a nice gift for a young teenage daughter or niece!
Billy Gilman has conquered my world.

"Ever since I heard him for the first time, he has amazed me. Every single day for years. Now that he's 6th album is to be released on July 25, 2006 - I know it will be an amazing album, because that's just what Billy is - AMAZING. Now that he's 18 years old, his voice has grown older too - into a fascinating, matured voice that will live on forever. If you haven't yet heard Billy Gilman sing, you're missing a living legend."
I Love Billy Gilman!!

"I was never able to get this CD but a few days ago I spend about 5 hours on the internet looking up Billy Gilman and i couldn't find anything! When I was little I loved watching the video of One Voice. i almost cried when i first saw the video because of all the meanings of it and his voice! I used to have the biggest crush on him(and i think i still do). His new songs are just as good as the old ones. my fave is "Is Anybody Out There". check out all of his cds.
