The legendary country music songwriter known as the Storyteller delivers the genre's most bracing, hilarious, and unique memoir, bringing to life long-gone characters from Nashville's streets and barrooms and detailing his one-of-a-kind journey in music. This expanded edition of Hall's original 1979 book includes never-before-heard poems and vignettes--read by the author--and new chapters that bring us up to date with Hall as he sits with President Carter, caps his recording career, quits drinking, ponders his legacy, examines the creative process, and retires from the music industry. "If you want to retire, go ahead," he says. "Life will still present innumerable occasions for you to go out and make an ass of yourself."

Tom T. Hall's detail-rich songs sharpened and elevated the language of country music and earned him a place in the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. His works, which include "(Old Dogs, Children, and) Watermelon Wine," the Grammy-winning "Harper Valley PTA," and "I Love," have become standards, and he has been an integral part of the Nashville music community for fifty years, inspiring generations of artists, from Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson to new-century song crafters Buddy Miller and Patty Griffin.Review:
