Classic Country Singers by Douglas B. Green, Classic Country Singers Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Classic Country Singers books, 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.

Johnny Cash

Classic Country Singers by Robert Hilburn, Johnny Cash Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Johnny Cash books, ‘Geweldige biografie. De totale Cash.’ Matthijs van Nieuwkerk in DWDD In de veelgeprezen en complete biografie van Johnny Cash vertelt Robert Hilburn het onverbloemde verhaal van een van de grootste sterren van de rock-’n-roll. De veelbewogen carrière van Cash startte bij Sun Records, met Elvis Presley en Jerry Lee Lewis, en eindigde in 2003 met de dappere, ontroerende video ‘Hurt’, het laatste muzikale hoogtepunt van de dan 71-jarige Cash. Een leven vol successen, mijlpalen, prijzen, maar ook een leven met grote teleurstellingen, drugs, tegenslagen en verdriet. ‘In een evenwichtige biografie komen alle kanten van de countryzanger Johnny Cash aan bod. Schrijver Robert Hilburn haalt wat mythes onderuit, zonder dat het grote verhaal van diens volle leven eronder lijdt. Hij schrijft met afstand, maar vanuit liefde.’ Jan Donkers’ keus voor boek van het jaar in NRC Handelsblad ‘Johnny Cash is een geslaagde biografie. […] Hilburn vertelt het verhaal van Johnny Cash in een heel directe vorm. Steeds op de huid van de hoofdpersoon; en vaak ook “in diens hoofd”: door te vertellen wat Johnny zelf dacht en voelde. Door deze aanpak verveelt het boek geen moment.’ de Volkskrant ‘Hilburn heeft een briljant verhaal geschreven over een nog briljantere songwriter met al z’n gebreken.’ Keith Richards Robert Hilburn was meer dan drie decennia hoofd muziekcriticus en redacteur popmuziek voor de Los Angeles Times. Hij heeft eerder een boek over John Lennon gepubliceerd en schrijft al zijn hele leven over poplegendes, zoals Bob Dylan, Elton John, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, U2 en Johnny Cash. Hilburn werkt op dit moment aan de biografie van Paul Simon die ook bij Spectrum zal verschijnen.

Sweet Dreams

Classic Country Singers by Warren R. Hofstra, Sweet Dreams Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Sweet Dreams books, One of the most influential and acclaimed female vocalists of the twentieth century, Patsy Cline (1932–63) was best known for her rich tone and emotionally expressive voice. Born Virginia Patterson Hensley, she launched her musical career during the early 1950s as a young woman in Winchester, Virginia, and her heartfelt songs reflect her life and times in this community. A country music singer who enjoyed pop music crossover success, Cline embodied the power and appeal of women in country music, helping open the lucrative industry to future female solo artists. Bringing together noted authorities on Patsy Cline and country music, Sweet Dreams: The World of Patsy Cline examines the regional and national history that shaped Cline's career and the popular culture that she so profoundly influenced with her music. In detailed, deeply researched essays, contributors provide an account of Cline's early performance days in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, analyze the politics of the split between pop and country music, and discuss her strategies for negotiating gender in relation to her public and private persona. Interpreting rich visual images, fan correspondence, publicity tactics, and community mores, this volume explores the rich and complex history of a woman whose music and image changed the shape of country music and American popular culture. Contributors are Beth Bailey, Mike Foreman, Douglas Gomery, George Hamilton IV, Warren R. Hofstra, Joli Jensen, Bill C. Malone, Kristine M. McCusker, and Jocelyn R. Neal.

Sing Me Back Home

Classic Country Singers by Dana Jennings, Sing Me Back Home Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Sing Me Back Home books, The years from about 1950 to 1970 were the golden age of twang. Country music's giants all strode the earth in those years: Hank Williams and Johnny Cash, George Jones and Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette. And many of the standards that still define country were recorded then: "Folsom Prison Blues," "Your Cheatin' Heart," "Mama Tried," "Stand by Your Man," and "Coal Miner's Daughter." In Sing Me Back Home, Dana Jennings pushes past the iconic voices and images to get at what classic country music truly means to us today. Yes, country tells the story of rural America in the twentieth century—but the obsessions of classic country were obsessions of America as a whole: drinking and cheating, class and the yearning for home, God and death. Jennings, who grew up in a town that had more cows than people when he was born, knows all of this firsthand. His people lived their lives by country music. His grandmothers were honky-tonk angels, his uncles men of constant sorrow, and his father a romping, stomping hell-raiser who lived for the music of Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and the other rockabilly hellions. Sing Me Back Home is about a vanished world in which the Depression never ended and the sixties never arrived. Jennings uses classic country songs to explain the lives of his people, and shows us how their lives are also ours—only twangier.
