Leon reportedly said that: "I was trying in my own little way to stop time." We must certainly be thankful for that effort and the result as pictured here is marvelous. In total there are about 750 color slides (about a quarter of them are published here) of audiences, posters, tickets, programs and surroundings but mostly, of course, the artists - Ernest Tubb, Louvin Brothers, Porter Wagoner, Reno & Smiley, Ray Price, Jimmy Martin, George Jones, Stanley Brothers, Roy Acuff, Hank Snow, Bill Monroe and Johnny Cash to mention a few.Read more ›
