Publisher Comments:

andlt;Iandgt;Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone?andlt;/Iandgt; is the first major biography of the Carter Family, the musical pioneers who almost single-handedly created the sounds and traditions that grew into modern folk, country, and bluegrass music. Meticulously researched and lovingly written, it is a look at a world and a culture that, rather than passing, has continued to exist in the music that is the legacy of the Carters — songs that have shaped and influenced generations of artists who have followed them. andlt;BRandgt; Brilliant in insight and execution, andlt;Iandgt;Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone?andlt;/Iandgt; is also an in-depth study of A.P., Sara, and Maybelle Carter, and their bittersweet story of love and fulfillment, sadness and loss. The result is more than just a biography of a family; it is also a journey into another time, almost another world, and theirs is a story that resonates today and lives on in the timeless music they created.
