Musician and writer Mike Evans takes us on a short but comprehensive trip through the world of country music. He shows the evolution of an American genre from roots in European folk music to its huge worldwide popularity with today’s record-buying public. He brings alive the history of the music and the people who took the genre from obscurity to mainstream. Lots of facts and figures on the different styles, stars, songs and labels; folk-singers, cowboys and rockabilly wild-men; the outlaws and the laid back West Coast scene. It’s all here!
