Country Music Originals: The Legends and the Lost
Graced by more than 200 illustrations, many of them seldom seen and some never before published, this sparkling volume offers vivid portraits of the men and women who created country music, the artists whose lives and songs formed the rich tradition from which so many others have drawn inspiration. Included here are not only such major figures as Jimmie Rodgers, The Carter Family, Fiddlin' John Carson, Charlie Poole, and Gene Autry, who put country music on America's cultural map, but many fascinating lesser-known figures as well, such as Carson Robison, Otto Gray, Chris Bouchillon, Emry Arthur and dozens more, many of whose stories are told here for the first time. To map some of the winding, untraveled roads that connect today's music to its ancestors, Tony Russell draws upon new research and rare source material, such as contemporary newspaper reports and magazine articles, internet genealogy sites, and his own interviews with the musicians or their families. The result is a lively mix of colorful tales and anecdotes, priceless contemporary accounts of performances, illuminating social and historical context, and well-grounded critical judgment. The illustrations include artist photographs, record labels, song sheets, newspaper clippings, cartoons, and magazine covers, recreat...

American Legends: The Life of Hank Williams
*Includes pictures. *Includes Williams' own quotes about his life and music. *Includes footnotes and a bibliography for further reading. “You have to have smelt a lot of mule manure before you can sing like a hillbilly.” – Hank Williams A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history’s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors’ American Legends series, readers can get caught up to speed on the lives of America’s most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. One of the most enduring and consistently popular singers and songwriters in the history of country music, Hank Williams is considered by many to be the first American superstar of the genre and the “father” of modern country music. In the post-World War II era, at a time when country music was an insulated and regionalized cottage industry, Williams almost personally oversaw its transition into a national mania that would be later taken up by such figures as Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley, even as the musicians remained loyal to the genre’s older, rural roots. But unlike the wave of greats that followed his brief but stellar career, Williams remaine...

Patsy Cline: Our Father's Other Daughter: The never before told story of country music legend Patsy Cline’s real father and her unknown family
For years, rumors have circulated about the identity of country music legend Patsy Cline's real father. In Patsy Cline: Our Father's Other Daughter, Charlotte Brannon Bartles breaks her silence and reveals the truth. Her father, Chester Brannon, was also Patsy's father. Learn about Patsy's other family and the man she called Pop Brannon. Charlotte shares her memories of her famous half-sister and also talks about her efforts to penetrate the wall of secrecy surrounding the circumstances of Patsy's birth and her father's relationship with Patsy's mother, Hilda Hensley.Patsy Cline: Our Father's Other Daughter is the chapter of the late megastar's life absent from all the other books and articles written about her."The true story will alter Patsy's official biography and will be difficult for some to accept. But I think the truth should prevail over someone's comfort level and the need to keep her life story "as is." It should be a consolation to Patsy's fans to know that Patsy knew a father who loved and adored her, regardless of how limited his role had been."From Patsy Cline: Our Father's Other Daughter

Country Music Legend-Selected Sides 1950-1959
Through a series of hits, he set the style for the generations that followed.In the early 1950s, Hank Williams was the King of Country Music. Among pretenders to his crown were Hank Snow, Webb Pierce and Eddy Arnold. Then there was Lefty Frizzell, who hit the ground running with the success of his initial release, If You've Got The Money (I've Got The Time) coupled with I Love You A Thousand Ways. In 1951 he had four records simultaneously in Billboard magazine's Country Top Ten. Later that year he joined the Grand Ole Opry, seemingly headed for the dizzy heights. Over the next few years, Lefty scored many chart successes, his progress hampered only by his temper, his liking for the bottle and ... Rock 'n' Roll. Undaunted, throughout the 1960s and 70s, he continued to record and perform - his popularity slowly waning. In 1963 his recording of Saginaw, Michigan was a massive hit, re-establishing his headliner status. This is a selection of his best material.
