by: Dan -
Harmonix and MTV Games want us to go country this week with Rock Band DLC from the likes of Alan Jackson, Keith Urban, Kenny Rogers, Shania Twain and more. The “Going Country Pack 02” will be available for $10.99/880 MS points as a pack, or $1.99/160 MS points or $2.00 for the PS3, 360 and Wii respectively starting on Wednesday Dec 29th (360/Wii) and January 7th (PS3). Here is the lineup:

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”

It is interesting that the PS3 is delayed by over a week from the 360 and Wii versions, but there are a couple of titles that might be worth snagging even if you aren’t a huge country music fan.
