Rock Band Takes A Gamble On Even More Country

Harmonix, clearly knowing when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em, has gone all in—in terms of bringing exactly seven new country tinged tracks to Rock Band next week.

Rock Band and Rock Band 2 owners with a taste for twang should count their money, then decide if new downloadable tunes from Alan Jackson, Keith Urban, Shania Twain, Martina McBride and more are in the cards. These seven new country hits will be dealin' out as of December 29 on the Xbox 360 and Wii and January 7 for the PlayStation 3.

The entire "Going Country Pack 02" will cost $US10.99, £4.99 UK, €7.99 EU or 880 Microsoft Points for Xbox 360, depending on your currency of choice. That works out to $US1.99 USD, £.99 UK, €1.49 EU or 160 Microsoft Points for Xbox 360 per track.

  • Alan Jackson – "Good Time"
  • Cross Canadian Ragweed – "Cry Lonely"
  • Jason Aldean – "She's Country"
  • Keith Urban – "I Told You So"
  • Kenny Rogers – "The Gambler"
  • Martina McBride – "This One's For the Girls"
  • Shania Twain – "Any Man of Mine"


    Mr Spoon knows when to hold them. Mr Spoon knows when to fold them. Mr Spoon knows when to walk away. Mr Spoon knows when to run.

    Mr Spoon is sure you get the point.

      I thought it was impossible to get the point with a spoon?

      Not bad songs really, but not my cup of tea. I'd much rather they released some more Rock/Metal. What about doing some of the Brutal Legend soundtrack? That had some great songs, I'm sure they could get some more of them into Rock Band.

      Um, Mr Spoon is probably going to be whisked away by Mr Spork.

      Mr Spork is not amused by Mr Spoon's actions.

        Mr Spoon is visited in his nightmares by Mr Spork. Mr Spoon, along with his good friend Mr Fork, are in constant fear of having their vital duties outsourced to scab labour.

    I’m just curious, when you have to do the singing parts of these songs, do you have to put on that faux country American accent to get the high scores?, Or will our Aussie accent do?

      It'll work with normal accent (just uses pitch accuracy AFAIK) but any self respecting singer will put on the accent for the win!
