I have a deployed friend (in his late 20's) who said he hasn't heard any new music in months and asked if I would burn him a couple CDs.

Now I don't mind spending some iTunes money and downloading some stuff, but I am hopelessly unhip and have no taste (I like Rascall Flatts, Faith Hill, Toby Keith, and others of that ilk).

Heís not really an alternative kind of guy and I canít see him listening to rap. Anyone have any suggestions? Heís been deployed for four months, so any really good new stuff in that time frame?

Artist and song title, please.
