Both amateurs and professionals can use this work as their best source of authentic early American music. Features words to more than 100 of the greatest Folk & Bluegrass songs of all time, all presented in alphabetical order from "All The Good Times Are Past And Gone" through "Your Engine's Cold Today." Comb binding allows book to be laid flat at any page, such as on a tabletop, while over-sized print allows reading from a distance - easy to read as you sing & play! (All songs are printed so you don't have to turn the page!) Designed especially for people who already know the melodies, but don't know all the words, or who want a handy reference. Cross-referenced for songs with more than one name, i.e., "Birmingham Jail/Down In The Valley," or "The Prisoner's Song/If I Had The Wings Of An Angel," or "Maiden's Lament, No One's Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone." Also featured is inside information on the Grand Ole Opry, Hee-Haw, Country Music Stars, Bluegrass Festivals & Folk Music Jamborees, along with historic photos and background information. Author Nita Quinn Miller has been named World Champion Folk Singer, and her husband, co-author J. R. Miller, wrote the hit television show HEE-HAW. Both have been "insiders" on the country music scene for years. 127 pages, comb-bound, heavy duty 20-lb pages for years of heavy use, fully illustrated.

J.R. and Nita Quinn Miller live and work at the very pulse of folk and bluegrass music. J.R. was one of three writers of the classic televisions show, Hee-Haw, working intimately with the Stoneman family, Grandpa Jones, Mac Wiseman, Jim and Jesse, Allison Krause, Roy Acuff and scores of others. J.R. also wrote television's NASHVILLE NOW with Ralph Emery, and I-40 PARADISE, both of which featured traditional as well as contemporary country music artists. Nita Quinn Miller is a popular performer in her own right. She was named National Champion Folk singer at the world-famous Smithville Fiddlers' Jamboree. She is a member of the Mountain Opry atop Signal Mountain in Walden, Tennessee, near Chattanooga. She has performed at virtually every music festival from Athens, Alabama, to Springfield, Tennessee. She's performed with such celebrities as Bill Monroe, Lionel Cartwright, Lulu Roman, and Roni Stoneman, and has many other friends whom she considers to be the "real" performers of this old time folk and bluegrass music, - the part-timers, the front porch pickers, the unslick and relative unrehearsed performers who truly make up the heart and soul of this wonderful old music. J.R. and Nita currently reside in Readyville Tennessee, about 3 miles from the birthplace of Uncle Dave Macon.
