What People are saying about this

Charles Wolfe
"Here, for the first time, is an inside look at the 'Golden Age' of country music from a woman's perspective....It's a strong book, and a vital book."
Edward Morris
"Fascinating....She's warm, honest, gossipy, and outrageously funny....Maxine wasn't just present at the birth of rock 'n roll, she was one of its midwives."
Eddy Arnold
"LOOKING BACK TO SEE is a good book. It touches my heart to hear her story and to think back to my boyhood. Her story is real."
Tom T. Hall
"I am happy to have known and worked with this trio and sincerely hope you enjoy the tale. It is told with honesty and humility and in a wonderful American voice."
Ralph Emery
"The Browns became leading exponents of what was then developing as the 'Nashville Sound.' That sound was making musical history and increasing the popularity of country music worldwide. Maxine was right in the middle of it."
Eddie Stubbs
"The good times as well as the bad, are portrayed in this colorful book by a woman who was a participant in one of the groups that defined trio vocal harmony during country music's golden era."
Bill Mack
"I never considered The Browns to be anything except perfect ambassadors of our music. To me, they were never 'pop,' although their 'works' were so super that they were accepted in the pop field. Simple as that. The Browns never abandoned country music. Honestly, I have always considered them the perfect 'country' unit."
