About this title


Offers portraits and brief profiles of top country singers and musicians and surveys the history of country music

From Library Journal:

The fine work of the Country Music Foundation continues with this deluxe picture book, part history, part criticism, and mostly celebration of country-and-western music. Among the rhinestones, boots, and guitars are 16 essays by country's best writers and historians, including a touching essay by Paul Hemphill on country's appeal. Every notable hillbilly singer, string band, honkytonker, or pop traitor, from Bakersfield's most obscure to Nashville's most estimable, gets a word or a picture. The approach is celebratory yet sober, eschewing puff for quality. Photographs, many informal and unfamiliar, are well chosen. Highly recommended.
