Pop-country warbler Kenny Rogers's 1999 "comeback" album features a pair of hit singles that returned him to the top of the country charts after a long absence: the lovely, sentimental "Buy Me a Rose" (featuring gorgeous support vocals from Alison Krauss) and "The Greatest," an even more sentimental story-song penned by Don Schlitz, the same celebrated Nashville songwriter who gave Rogers his 1978 smash "The Gambler." Sentimentality is, in fact, the operative word throughout She Rides Wild Horses, particularly on homespun, good-hearted homilies like "Slow Dance More" and the title cut, both of which are delightfully reminiscent of some of Rogers's earliest and best country hits. Of course, this wouldn't be a Kenny Rogers album if it didn't include a couple of smooth, satiny pop-flavored ballads. --Bob Allen

"I do not consider myself the biggest Kenny Rogers fan. In fact, I have only this and Ten Years Of Gold. This is definetley the greatest country album from the past 10 years.
Slow Dance More- One of the best on the album and should have went farther than it did.
Buy Me a Rose- A number 1 hit. A great love song.
I Will Remember You- I have to say this is better than the original version.
Love Don't Live Here Anymore- The backup singers make a great song an awesome song.
She Rides Wild Horses- 2nd best on album
Kind of Fool Love Makes- Another good love song.
Loving Arms- I enjoyed this song but not the greatest on the album
I Can't Make You Love Me- My least favorite but it's still great
Let It Be Me- excellent ballad
The Greatest- Kenny saved the best for last.
I think Kenny Rogers is the one of the greatest country singers ever and this is one of his best. He had a concert on A&E and I watched it to hear some of his older songs (especially The Coward of the County) and he performed several songs from this album which covinced me to buy it."
