By DJ Joe Sixpack HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on August 9, 2001
Format: Paperback
An invaluable book, outling the history of women in country music, from Day One. This husband/wife team made themselves into a franchise as historians and commentators for the TNN country cable network... Here they present the female side of the country equation, moving historically from the pre-recording days back in Hog Hollar, to the gradual entry of women into the growing "hillbilly" music industry, and finally into the hallowed halls of the Grand Ole Opry and the mainstream of commercial country. The writing is generally good, and the scope of the book is impressive. The authors pay special attention to the contradictions of women's place in early country -- they were important keepers of folk traditions, but not allowed to perform professionally -- as well as to the persistent stereotyping and creative restrictions placed on them my the Nashville establishment. This book may be a bit exhaustive, but it's an awesome bit of pop scholarship. Besides, they turned me onto the foul-mouthed mid-'50s proto-rockabilly filly, Charlene Arthur, which was worth the price of admission alone. Highly recommended!

Mary A. Bufwack writes in a gossipy like style that made this book an easy read. The author is enthusiastic about the subject. She tries to squeeze in the name practically of every girl who sang a song. She even devotes a chapter to the genres that are related to country like folk and more so rockabilly. There are plenty of pictures throughout the book.
Unlike the author I don't see the downfall of the gingham dress to be such a success. The girls in the beginning of the book just look so cute. This book has introduced me to several people such as Kay Adams and the Girls of the Golden West. For this I'm very grateful.
