Description

This illustrated A-Z guide covers more than 700 country music artists, groups, and bands. Articles also cover specific genres within country music as well as instruments used. Written in a lively, engaging style, the entries not only outline the careers of country music's greatest artists, they provide an understanding of the artist's importance or failings, and a feeling for his or her style. Select discographies are provided at the end of each entry, while a bibliography and indexes by instrument, musical style, genre, and song title round out the work.

For a full list of entries, a generous selection of sample entries, and more, visit the Country Music: A Biographical Dictionary website.

Reviews

'High remarks for inclusiveness … Included here are more than 700 insightful, alphabetical entries on some of the major subgenres of country music as well as informative and entertaining biographical sketches … Recommended especially for school and public libraries looking for a current, not-too-scholarly, single-volume biographical reference.' - Library Journal
