Country Music Annual 2001 (Paperback)
The swelling interest in popular music studies has far outpaced the outlets for publication. With the Country Music Annual, scholars, students, and interested readers have a place for sharing their research and ideas.
The subjects of this second volume range from one of the very first musicians to make country records, Henry Gilliland, to the current avant-garde work of the alternative country band Uncle Tupolo. Ernest Tubb's musical roots, the origins of one of Roy Acuff's classic gospel songs, and the Carter Family's rhythms are discussed in these pages. Even NASCAR makes an appearance.
Advisory Board: Bill C. Malone, Nolan Porterfield, Jimmie Rogers, Curtis Ellison, William K. McNeil, Wayne W. Daniel, Joli Jensen.
