When you're talking about what has made the Rock Band franchise great, the full-band experience is certainly clutch, but it's been the relentless post-release support from Harmonix that has really given the franchise its legs. While downloading the songs directly through the in-game store is the preferred method for many, themed disc-based packages serve the need of the less connected rocketeers.

On February 1, Harmonix is releasing Rock Band Country Track Pack 2, which promises, and I'm not making any of this up, a full 21 tracks of full-bore, gut-clenching, beer-swillin', god-fearin', trailer-slappin', red-white-and-blue honky tonk. The kind of twang this beautiful country was founded on. Here's a full track listing, in case you somehow require further convincing.

  • Billy Currington - That's How Country Boys Roll
  • Chely Wright - Single White Female
  • Darius Rucker - Alright
  • Darryl Worley - Awful Beautiful Life
  • Dierks Bentley - Sideways
  • Dwight Yoakam - Intentional Heartache
  • Gary Allan - Man of Me
  • George Strait - Twang
  • Jason Aldean - Crazy Town
  • Johnny Cash - Ring of Fire
  • Justin Moore - Backwoods
  • Keith Urban - Kiss a Girl
  • Lady Antebellum    - Perfect Day
  • Laura Bell Bundy - Giddy On Up
  • Luke Bryan    - Rain is a Good Thing
  • Merle Haggard - Mama Tried
  • Rascal Flatts - Summer Nights
  • Reba McEntire - The Night The Lights Went Out in Georgia
  • Shania Twain - Party for Two (With Billy Currington)
  • Sugarland - Settlin'
  • Trace Adkins - Ride

I mean Dwight Yoakam? George Strait? Merle Haggard?! JOHNNY HOUSE ON FIRE HAND TO GOD LIVE FROM FOLSOM PRISON MAN IN GOD-SNEERIN' BLACK GUITAR FULL OF AMPHETAMINES CASH!?! In light of this momentous occasion, Harmonix has generously furnished us with three, count 'em, three copies of the Rock Band Country Track Pack 2 for Xbox 360 (which, I should note, come with codes that will let you import the songs on the disc directly into Rock Band 3,) to distribute to you kind folks in an appropriately grandiose, hillbilly fashion.

If there's one thing we love as much as this great nation, it's causing undue grief to Harmonix Street Team Member John Drake. With that in mind, and in the downhome country spirit of the Rock Band Country Track Pack 2, we want you to warm up your Photoshop chops and craft an image that really captures the essence of "country" while also prominently featuring the bright-eyed, full-browed visage of John Drake himself. We have graciously provided a small gallery of very choice, candid photos of John Drake to help get you started. If this ain't synergy, I don't know what is!

Post your submissions in the comments below by Monday, January 31, and a heavily partial group of judges from Whiskey Media and Harmonix Music Systems will convene to determine the winning entries. Now giddiyup! 
 
UPDATE: The contest is closed and the winners have been chosen! Thanks to everyone who participated, and an extra-special thanks to John Drake himself for being such a good sport about our grossly unnecessary shenanigans. Winners, check your PM boxes! You should receive a message from me shortly.

My general stance on most country is "...eh", but Ring of Fire and   The Night The Lights Went Out in Georgia are severely tempting... (even if I heavily prefer the Vicki Lawrence version)

It's a shame there's not a PS3 track pack up for grabs... Good luck to the participants on 360 though. Should be entertaining to see the entries.

There needs to be a NASCAR in there somewhere, preferably #3 to be true south accurate.

I don't know most of these, but I know that the second the hubby sees Ring of Fire, he'll say this is a purchase.

Since I started with Rock Band for PS3 everything Rock Band I have through RB3 has been for PS3 so good luck to everyone else. Besides, I have the one song I really care about from this set already purchased. Which strangely is a cover.
