Overview

Part of Rhino's multi-volume series chronicling different eras in country music, Heroes of Country Music, Vol. 3 tells the story of Nashville's rise as a music powerhouse in the '50s. Thanks to established labels like RCA and Columbia and talented producers like Don Law, Chet Atkins, and Steve Sholes, the music shifted from the honky tonk sounds of the late '40s and early '50s to the crossover country-pop of Marty Robbins, Patsy Cline, and Faron Young. The 18 tracks here feature sides from these and many other stars of the decade, including Ray Price, Webb Pierce, Kitty Wells, Ernest Tubb, and Hank Williams. From the rough-hewn sound of tavern nights to the first rumblings of the Nashville sound, this disc takes you on a guided tour with a generous dose of the hits.
