VA songs of the eagles

By Scott Goldfine

“Common Thread: The Songs of the Eagles” features today’s top country stars interpreting the 1970s band’s greatest tunes. The Eagles’ charm was their fine songwriting and ability to fuse rock and country without alienating either audience. Their timeless compositions make this a winning effort.

Best are Clint Black’s “Desperado” and Vince Gill’s “I Can’t Tell You Why.”
