About this book
For country music fans everywhere, this is a comprehensive guide to the entire spectrum of the music, from string bands and old-timey country, to new traditionalists, alternative country, and today's Nashville superstars. A wealth of great country music has been made over the course of the 20th century, but unfortunately that music hasn't always been well presented. Country has a history of poorly assembled studio albums, quickly recorded cash-in albums, budget-priced compilations, and rerecordings. This book helps listeners to sort through all of this and find the best recordings of old favorites, as well as to discover some great music they may not have heard before. The All Music Guide to Country points out which albums have all the original recordings, which budget-line collections are actually worth acquiring, and which old records are worth a search. Designed for devoted country fans and newcomers alike, this book is packed with fascinating and informative features, including biographies of more than 1,000 artists and groups, providing thorough and concise overviews of their careers; reviews and ratings of the best recordings of each performermore than 5,500 in all; historical essays and "music maps" charting the roots and evolution of country music, its styles, instruments, key artists, and more; and country resources, including book reviews, magazine listings, online sites, and mail-order sources.

Publisher: Gibbs Smith

About this book
Country music may have existed before 1925-in barn dances, roadside taverns, tent shows, minstrel shows, and vaudeville-but it didn't become Country Music until the advent of radio and new stars were born. In Classic Country Singers, author Douglas B. Green (a.k.a. Ranger Doug from the Grammy-winning western group Riders in the Sky) celebrates the men and women who built the industry that gave us "Your Cheatin' Heart," "Blue Yodel," "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels," and the Grand Ole Opry. From the beginnings of bluegrass to honky-tonk to western swing and more, Classic Country Stars offers intimate biographies and cherished photos covering the careers of nearly fifty major stars from country music's first half-century, including beloved musicians such as Uncle Dave Macon, the Carter Family, and Jimmie Rodgers up to the pop-country hit makers of the 1950s like Eddy Arnold and Marty Robbins. Through war, depression, and the advent of rock and roll, these men and women pioneered a sound that moved from regional barn dances and radio stations to an international audience. Includes profiles on: Hank Williams Gene Autry Hank Snow Kitty Wells Ray Price Minnie Pearl Ernest Tubb Douglas B. Green is the author of three previous works on American music: Country Roots, Singing In The Saddle, and Singing Cowboys. He is considered one of the leading experts on American roots music, especially western. His full-time job for thirty years has been as lead vocalist of Riders in the Sky, the two-time Grammy-award-winning western quartet and member of the Western Music Hall of Fame.
