Review:

During the last 10 years, the country-music industry has exploded with new stars and new sounds. The creators of The Encyclopedia of Folk, Country and Western Music are back with an all-new, revised, and updated country-music reference. Ranging from Hank Williams Sr. to BR5-49, each biographical sketch traces the artist's career and lists notable recordings. Want to know which early country artists appeared on the National Barn Dance radio show? Curious about which banjo players use the Scruggs picking style? The general subject index makes for mighty good readin'. Entries are also indexed by artist and album and song titles, and an appendix lists award- winners and members of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Whether you prefer Bob Wills or Shania Twain, this is the ultimate reference for any country-music lover.
