“An informative, entertaining story of the golden age of country music and a life filled with family, friends, fame and misfortune that unfolds like a classic country music song.”                                     Michael Swanger, The Iowa History Journal

 

 "The pictures alone are worth the price of the book."                Don Hosier, Country Music Fan

 "Chapter Eight alone, in my opinion,  is the first time the story has been properly told of how  the Country Music Disc Jockey  Association evolved into what is now known as the Country Music  Association"                                                      - Tom Perryman, KKUS Radio, Tyler, Texas
