Country music has a rich history with roots that reach into the land — the Tennessee hills — & a future that stretches across the continents. It both touches & calls forth what is most essential about common human experience. But until now, the images we have seen from it have traditionally been glitzy, posed, star shots. This book presents a different kind of vision, a vision, that, through photography, puts us in touch with all the emotions chronicled in the music. Here are revealing photos of Roy Acuff, Eddy Arnold, Chet Atkins, Kitty Wells, June Carter Cash, Loretta Lynn, Ronnie Milsap & scores more.
