The Bellamy Brothers Feat. The Bacon Brothers, "Guilty of the Crime"

74 Billboard Rating

Two pairs of veteran country siblings come together with impressive results on this tune. "Guilty of the Crime" was featured on the Eagles' 2007 album "Long Road Out of Eden" and is revived for an intriguing collaboration between Howard and David Bellamy and Kevin and Michael Bacon. The song is now featured on the Bellamy Brothers' "Anthology, Volume I" and its new production is skillfully understated, focusing on what feels like an effortless blend of the duos' voices. Their solid vocal delivery is what gives "Guilty of the Crime" its main appeal. Though country is its most obvious radio home, the song has a chemistry that could appeal to multiple formats. -Deborah Evans Price
