Review:

"Peter Stamper received the Stephen Foster Award for Broadcast Excellence."―

"Stamper is the kind of community historian who seems to know just about everything about a place. . . . Informative and just as entertaining as the place it describes."―Appalachian Journal

"Introduces readers to the characters, the shenanigans, and the business deals that have evolved into over half a century of unique entertainment."―Appalachian Quarterly

"Introduces us to one of the veteran comedians of country music and provides much-needed insight about the sadly neglected but indispensable province of rural humor."―Bill Malone

"This substantial tome will give hours of fascinating reading."―Country Music People

"Renfro Valley has meant so much to every person in country music, especially older folks like me. We have all played there or played with people who have and we think of it as legend."―Dolly Parton

"The first definitive history of the Renfro Valley music and entertainment scene."―Kentucky Living

"An affectionate yet candid look at the 60-year history of the Rockcastle County music institution."―Kentucky Monthly

"A remarkably good book."―Loyal Jones, in Now & Then
