Amazon has posted their August “50 for $5.00″ selection, and they’re offering two top-selling country albums for $5.00.

First up is Darius Rucker’s country album Learn to Live, which is close to spawning three #1 singles.  I didn’t have any of them, so I’m buying it:

Bargain Hunter: Sugarland’s Twice the Speed of Life ($2.99)

It has been awhile since Amazon has had a Daily Deal worth mentioning here. However, they have returned to country music in a big way today by offering Sugarland’s smash debut album, Twice the Speed of Life for just $2.99.

This album, by one of country music’s most popular duos, famously includes the radio hits, “Baby Girl”, “Something More”, and “Just Might (Make Me Believe)”. it also includes my new personal Sugarland favorite (as I’ve just bought the album thanks to this deal), the unreleased organic-sounding “Hello.”

So, if you are like me and don’t already own this album, this is your chance to give it a try with minimal chance of buyer’s remorse. I did it and I’m happily not disappointed.

Get Keith Urban’s “Song for Dad” for free on Amazon

Keith UrbanAs children, it’s common to think that we’ll never be like our parents. In some cases, we think we’ll never do the annoying or strange things that our parents did, as Brad Paisley sang about in “Yes You Will”, and there are other times when we think that we’ll never be as smart or as good as our parents. If we’re lucky, there comes a day when we see our parents in ourselves and can either eradicate certain behaviors and traits or embrace them, depending on the similarities we see.

In Keith Urban’s, “Song for Dad”, he celebrates the similarities that he realizes exist between him and his dad. Likewise, he hopes that he becomes more like his dad as other circumstances arise, particularly when he himself becomes a father. In a similar sentiment to Paul Overstreet’s “Seeing My Father in Me”, Urban embraces being like his father and is grateful for the legacy.

In celebration of Father’s Day, Amazon is offering “Song for Dad” as their Free Song of the Day. So, let us know your favorite song about Dad and then head over to Amazon and grab this touching tribute to dads for free.
