Johnny s Cash and Charley s Pride is country music s smoothest rough guide. It is filled with untold stories, newly revealed histories, and armchair philosophies. It is an inside view of the music s greatest characters and pivotal moments. It is reverent and irreverent, well-studied and informal. It is a behind-the-scenes, first-person account of some of country s icons, some of country s quirks, and some of country s golden-but-hidden personalities. It is a smiling, atypical immersion. It is a hearty introduction to Kris Kristofferson, Taylor Swift, Loretta Lynn, and more. It is a hoot."

What would it be like to be a part of country music history? Singer/sngwriter and manager Merle Kilgore could have told you. He awed his fans with tales of his life in the music business, always with a supporting cast of impossibly famous friends. At age fourteen Merle carried the guitar for Hank Williams Sr. Four years later he wrote his first song, and Webb Pierce turned it into a million-seller. He double-dated with Elvis Presley, wrecked hotel rooms with Johnny Cash, held seances with Johnny Horton, and convinced Audrey Williams to put Hank Jr. on the road at fourteen-years-old. Merle became a prolific songwriter, entering the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. He co-wrote his signature accomplishment, Ring of Fire with June Carter Cash. This work is listed by CMT as one of the top four all-time country music songs. These are just a few of the amazing stories of Merle's life, showcased in These Are My People, written by his grandson Mark Rickert.

The Starday Story: The House That Country Music Built is the first book entirely dedicated to one of the most influential music labels of the twentieth century. In addition to creating the largest bluegrass catalogue throughout the 1950s and ’60s, Starday was also known for its legendary rockabilly catalogue, an extensive Texas honky-tonk outpouring, classic gospel and sacred recordings, and as a Nashville independent powerhouse studio and label. Written with label president and co-founder Don Pierce, this book traces the label’s origins in 1953 through the 1968 Starday-King merger. Interviews with artists and their families, employees, and Pierce contribute to the stories behind famous hit songs, including “Y’all Come,” “A Satisfied Mind,” “Why Baby Why,” “Giddy-up Go,” “Alabam,” and many others. Gibson’s research and interviews also shed new light on the musical careers of George Jones, Arlie Duff, Willie Nelson, Roger Miller, the Stanley Brothers, Cowboy Copas, Red Sovine, and countless other Starday artists. Conversations with the children of Pappy Daily and Jack Starns provide a unique perspective on the early days of Starday, and extensive interviews with Pierce offer an insider glance at the country music industry during its golden era. Weathering through the storm of rock and roll and, later, the Nashville Sound, Starday was a home to traditional country musicians and became one of the most successful independent labels in American history. Ultimately, The Starday Story is the definitive record of a country music label that played an integral role in preserving our nation’s musical heritage.

Country music’s greatest mullets, bobs, beehives, and bouffants collected together in one entertaining volume, illustrated with dozens of color and black-and-white photographs. "The higher the hair, the closer to god." From mullets to mustaches and teased hair to bobs, country singers each have their own distinct looks which enhance their performance and image. Some wear hats and others wear wigs. Some follow the trends and others set them. Some have stylists on the tour bus and others rely on God and hair-spray. As Dolly Parton famously said, "People always ask me how long it takes to do my hair. I don’t know, I’m never there." As country has grown in stature and popularity since the 1960s, country musicians have evolved their music—and their hairstyles and fashion as well. Industry insider Erin Duvall takes fans on a lively tour in this entertaining history that combines interviews with famous hairstylists and fifty of country music stars’ best ’dos, including 1990s mullet king, Billy Ray Cyrus. While business in the front and party in the back may be outdated today, twenty years ago it was one of country’s defining styles. In Country Music Hair, Duvall tells a tale of the day the mullet died and the rumor of the strong emotional reaction from the "Achy Breaky Heart" singer’s young daughter, Miley, who desperately pleaded with him to keep his mane. A fantastic and fun trip down memory lane, Country Music Hair is a must for country listeners and pop culture fans.

(Book). Billy Vera: Harlem to Hollywood is the extraordinary story of singer/songwriter/actor/music historian Billy Vera, suburban child of a showbiz family who fell in love with black music at an early age. We follow his journey as he plays the Times Square mafia-owned clubs by night and works as a staff songwriter by day, penning tunes for the likes of Ricky Nelson, Fats Domino, and the Shirelles, before finally writing one for himself and gospel singer Judy Clay. His dream comes true as the duo plays to standing ovations at Harlem's Apollo Theatre. With the murder of Martin Luther King Jr. and the arrival of the Woodstock generation, the change in the culture renders blue-eyed soul singers like Vera irrelevant and a decade of '70s survival gigs ensues, until Dolly Parton's version of one of his songs hits number one. Relocating to Los Angeles, our hero forms a band, Billy Vera and the Beaters, and finds career renewal in the form of a hit record and a side career as an actor. At the ripe old age of 42, he finds himself with a number-one record, followed by a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and eventually a Grammy award, all without ever falling into the musician's trap of drugs or alcohol (we told you this isn't your typical musician's tale.) This is the story of a true musician who held on to his art through highs and lows: Along the way, we see a history of the music business of the 1960s, '70s, and '80s as told by one who lived it and sustained his work through all of it.
