Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Country music has always been the thread that ties America's musical styles together. The roots of blues, rock, folk, and jazz run deep in the soaring fiddles, jangling guitars, dashing dobros, fretful mandolins, string-bending banjos, and haunting steel guitars of musicians from the Carter Family and Uncle Dave Macon to Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, and Alan Jackson. This beautiful anecdotal history of American country music features long essays by some of the best U.S. country music scholars (e.g., Bill Malone, Nolan Porterfield, and Chet Flippo); profiles of country artists; time lines of different eras in country music history; snapshots of classic country albums; and gorgeous photos of country stars like Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Shania Twain, the Dixie Chicks, and Garth Brooks. Published in cooperation with the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville which provided images and other materials from its archives this book is chock-a-block with luscious color graphics and brilliant writing. A sumptuous feast essential for all libraries. Henry L. Carrigan Jr., Lancaster, PA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
