The Birth of the Bakersfield Sound travels through a time when people came together to play and enjoy music, and ended up with a new revelation of sound. In a region best known for its agriculture, oil, and railroads, successful musicians such as Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Ferlin Husky, Jean Shepard, Red Simpson, Bonnie Owens, and Dallas Frazier became the subject of countless books and stories. This book highlights the importance of the sidemen, the disc jockeys, the radio and television stations, the clubs, and club owners, and most importantly, the loyalty of the fans and supporters who made the birth of the Sound possible.
