Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In this exhaustively researched, extensively sourced, and well written tome, Craig Maki and Keith Cady perform yeoman's work in documenting the history of country music in Detroit and its environs during the middle decades of the 20th Century. The book introduces readers to numerous "forgotten" country headliners from that era who capitalized on the the sizable diaspora of white Southerners who moved to Detroit for work during the heyday of the American Automotive Industry and brought their affinity for country, western swing, and bluegrass music with them. Thanks to Messrs. Maki and Cady, these talented artists will no longer be forgotten; their contributions to the flourishing country music scene in the Motor City before, during, and after World War II have now been preserved for the Ages. Kudos to Maki and Cady for performing this great service. (As an aside, aficionados of early rock and roll and fans of Detroit's own Jack Scott, one of the most underrated rockers ever, will find the chapter in this book on Al Allen, Jack's old lead guitarist, quite illuminating.)

I was so pleased to find out about it because my aunt, May Hawks, is featured in it! She was a great lady with a beautiful voice. She sang at the Grand Ole Opry, was inducted into the Michigan Country Music Hall of Fame, made several records and hosted some radio shows. She passed away three years ago at the age of 89 so the book is a great keepsake for our family.

I'm from Tennessee, and know many people whse families relocated to Detroit in the 50s for work. Some stayed there, many came back. There is an indelible link between Nashville and Detroit. My husband's father is one of the musicians mentioned in this very well researched book. Thank you, Mr Maki, for your interest.
