The once-in-a-lifetime CD collection includes 46 songs by 43 Oklahoma recording artists and groups, including Vince Gill, Reba McEntire, Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood, Toby Keith and Jimmy Webb. The first disc, called “A Unique History,” highlights celebrated musicians from the state’s earlier days including Gene Autry, Chet Baker, Patti Page, Charlie Christian, BJ Thomas, Leon Russell and Leona Mitchell. The second disc, aptly named “An Extraordinary Future,” celebrates many of Oklahoma’s current stars and up-and-comers, including The All American Rejects, Brooks and Dunn, Katrina Elam, The Tractors, Sandi Patty and The Flaming Lips.
