Bet you didn't notice, but Bon Jovi had a Number One country hit last year. The Jersey boys remade "Who Says You Can't Go Home" as a duet with the great Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland and watched it turn into a much bigger hit than the rock version. Which means it's time for a full-on Bon Jovi country album, right? Right. Lost Highway moves in on Nashville as shrewdly as "It's My Life" skimmed Stockholm seven years ago — never one to go halfway, Jon even wails about his "plastic dashboard Jesus" in the title tune. There are duets with LeAnn Rimes ("Stranger") and Big and Rich ("We Got It Going On"), but the keepers are Bon Jovi corn about cars and girls, especially "I Love This Town," a sequel to "Wild in the Streets."
