Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Country Rock, as played by the Byrds, the Eagles, and The Flying Burrito Brothers, was the dominant style in American music during the 1970s. But the artistically fertile relationship between rock and country music has-since their first encounter in the 1950s-been uneasy and often explosive. Are You Ready for the Country traces their tumultuous history and introduces us to all the main personalities-from pioneers like Hank Williams and Elvis Presley, through icons such as Gram Parsons and Johnny Cash, to superstars like Neil Young and Willie Nelson, and today's artists such as Beck and Wilco. This is a must-have volume for any music lover.
