Product description

Review

"Wolfe takes some of the best and least-known personalities of "Traditional Country" and gives them life in succinct but informative vignettes...Still, whether Wolfe is retelling well-known lore or delving into the fascinating, forgotten, yet influential lives of lesser-knowns; he provides vivid. loving portraits of a country music that barely exists anymore."
-David M. Turkalo, Booklist
"An essential book for popular music collections."
-ray Olson, Booklist
"In lively, easy-going prose, he undertakes honest, generous, largely biographical investigations of the musicians to whom he's devoted his career... His sensitive, masterful essays elucidate the contributions these artists made to the "great unifying, nourishing stream [that] runs through the history of country music."
-Publisher's Weekly
