Top customer reviews
If you aren't looking for every detail of every aspect of everything country music, you may want to look elsewhere... but if you are, THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU.
The prose has a narrative quality to it that makes reading enjoyable, while at the same time filling you with every detail imaginable.
I recommend picking up this one up! Just make sure you get the most recent edition; it has been updated several times.
