About the Author:

Author James L. Dickerson was born and raised at the intersection of Highways 61 and 82, the heralded crossroads of "the blues" in the Mississippi Delta. That music was his inspiration and he’s become the dominant voice in the South on matters related to music, politics, and culture. With more than 18 non-fiction books under his belt, he’s written about everyone from Elvis Presley and Colonel Tom Parker to Ashley Judd and Stevie Ray Vaughn.

From Booklist:

Tracing women in pop chronologically, Go, Girl, Go! opens with a chapter covering a very long period (1900-1953) and continues in decade-spanning chapters. Dickerson observes the growth of women's viability and influence from the hardscrabble beginnings of commercial American music to the impact of feminism and such styles as disco to the era when, by his lights, "Country Divas" reshaped pop to the present. A list of top-20-charting albums by women by decade rounds out the presentation. Mike Tribby
