As others have mentioned, the pitch is horrendous when playing vocals. It can pick up only the lowest pitch. Sing high and the game has no idea that you are singing anything at all. But why would you need to sing Martina McBride and Sarah Evans high anyway? =-)
There is also a bug with syncing trophies. Mine errors out when trying to sync the trophies and they never show up on your player profile list. It's like you never earned them. A support ticket into EA has them "looking into it."
All in all, this isn't a great outing for an expansion pack and shows a true disregard for the PS3.
I love rockband but surprisingly this was good. I hate country but some songs were awesome. But, the only two songs that were stupid was Sattelite Radio and the most impossible song in the history of guitar games Sin Wagon by the Dixie Chicks. It was physically impossible to do. That was a big letdown. Make a Rockband 3 already.

To put in bluntly this looks like it for the ps2. Only 21 songs can not use downloadable content. Can not edit any created Chars. but the worse thing is there is NOT a no fail option. And it does not seem to pick up pitch's well. I got this game for the family as they are all country music fans but without the no fail option my wife and kids got upset not being able to complete a song. On tv you see band members dressed in country outfits yet i did not see any. This game is just like the orginal rockband. With little or no options. I dont think these songs should of been put on a disk. They all should of been downloadable content. If your going to make a stand alone disk then you have to offer more then just a basic Scheme. So unless you have to have these songs now i would wait till you can download them.
