South by Southwest: A Guide to Alternative Country Music by Brian Hinton

South by Southwest provides a fresh look at the increasingly popular genre born of classic country music from icons such as Dolly Parton and Hank Williams. Expert rock journalist Brian Hinton heralds the arrival of this new sound, country partnered with pop, as bands like Counting Crows and Lambchop land on international Top Ten charts. Starting with the work of trendsetters like Gram Parsons, The Band, and The Eagles, Hinton explores alternative country's present and looks ahead to its future. He interviews all the important bands and contemporary artists riding the crest of the wave, focusing on the current urban music scene. Each alternative country band's rise to prominence is charted and supported with a detailed discography. 24 black-and-white photographs and interviews with platinum-selling artists and groups, including Ryan Adams, Steve Earle, Lambchop, The Handsome Family, and the Flaming Lips are featured.
