Reviews

This is the most engaging and informative examination of progressive country music to date. Stimeling has done an outstanding job of exploring the social, cultural, and political implications of this important yet often misunderstood musical phenomenon. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the rich, complex, and colorful history of American music. * Dr. Gary Hartman, Director, Center for Texas Music History, Texas State University-San Marcos *
