The Definitive Collection captures some of the most original, impactful songs in the entire country canon. Hall made his name as a teller of tales, valuing the poetic power in common people's stories over country songwriting convention. Every song feels like it comes straight from Hall's own experience, whether he's unpacking anecdotes about scrapes with jealous husbands ("Salute to a Switchblade") and brushes with the law ("A Week in a County Jail"), painting vivid character portraits ("The Year That Clayton Delaney Died"), or depicting a one-sided conversation between an aging father and his traveling-musician son ("Homecoming").
