Gorgeously illustrated and hugely entertaining, this book tells the history of country music, including the origins of its diverse range of sound and styles — from honky tonk to gospel to bluegrass to rockabilly, leading up through the decades to the music's massive commercial success today — as well as the many legendary musicians — from Hank Williams, Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn to Merle Haggard, Rosanne Cash and Garth Brooks, to name a few. Rife with rare photographs and endlessly fascinating anecdotes, the stories in this sweeping yet intimate history will captivate longtime country fans and introduce new listeners to an extraordinary body of music that lies at the very center of the American experience.
