Country Weekly's Greatest Albums

One more subjective list against which to check your own library.  This list was compiled by the editorial staff of Country Weekly and was published in their 10th anniversary issue.  I should note that they only ranked albums released during their publication run, which began in 1994.  The cover date of the issue in which the list appeared was March 16, 2004.

1. Fly, Dixie Chicks
2. Double Live, Garth Brooks
3. Drive, Alan Jackson
4. The Woman in Me, Shania Twain
5. Not a Moment Too Soon, Tim McGraw
6. O Brother, Where Art Thou? Soundtrack
7. Blue Clear Sky, George Strait
8. Breathe, Faith Hill
9. American Recordings, Johnny Cash
10. How Do You Like Me Now?! Toby Keith
11. Blue, LeAnn Rimes
12. Red Dirt Road, Brooks & Dunn
13. New Favorite, Alison Kraus + Union Station
14. Did I Shave My Legs for This? Deana Carter
15. The Key, Vince Gill
16. Wide Open Spaces, Dixie Chicks
17. Come on Over, Shania Twain
18. No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems, Kenny Chesney
19. Unleashed, Toby Keith
20. Nothin' but the Taillights, Clint Black

The only one I don't have is Vince Gill's The Key.  I've got the rest of the list if anyone wants to see it and can't find it online.
