A bit of background. The Country Music Association is a Nashville based organization founded in 1958 to promote and preserve Country Music. The ACM was founded six years later in Los Angeles for the purpose of promoting Country (and Western) artists on the West Coast. It is still a west coast-based organization.
Because this is the ACM's 50th anniversary they opened up their archives and produced this book. It is also a fund raiser with - according to their website - "The Academy's proceeds from the book will go to ACM Lifting Lives, the charitable arm of the Academy dedicated to improving lives through the power of music.
The publisher also decided to make it an "interactive" (sort of) scrapbook with repro "backstage passes" and a repro sheet of Loretta Lynn's song "The Pill". These are "cute" but make sure they don't fall out when you look through the book.)
So it you are a Country Music (as defined above) fan and watch the annual awards show each year, I'm pretty sure you'll like this book.Read more ›
