But for a few twists of fate, Atlanta could easily have grown to be the recording center that Nashville is today. "Pickin' on Peachtree" traces Atlanta's emergence in the 1920s as a major force in country recording and radio broadcasting, a position of dominance it enjoyed for some forty years. From the Old Time Fiddlers' Conventions and barn dances through the rise of station WSB and other key radio outlets, Wayne W. Daniel thoroughly documents the consolidation of country music as big business in Atlanta. He also profiles a vast array of performers, radio personalities, and recording moguls who transformed the Peachtree city into the nerve center of early country music.

Clear out a spot on your bookshelf for it. And don't fail to read it before you put it up there!" -- Bluegrass Unlimited "This entertaining book reminds us that Nashville did not always monopolize the country music business...
