COMPILED BY THE STAFF OF THE COUNTRY MUSIC
HALL OF FAME. 626 PAGES. HARDBOUND.

UPON PUBLICATION IN 1998, THE ENCYCLOPEDIA
OF COUNTRY MUSIC BECAME A MUCH-LOVED REFERENCE
SOURCE, PRIZED FOR THE WEALTH OF INFORMATION
IT CONTAINED ON THAT MOST AMERICAN OF MUSICAL GENRES.
THIS THOROUGHLY REVISED NEW EDITION INCLUDES MORE
THAN 1,200 A-Z ENTRIES COVERING NINE DECADES OF
HISTORY AND ARTISTRY, FROM THE CARTER FAMILY
RECORDINGS OF THE 1920S TO THE REIGN OF TAYLOR
SWIFT IN THE FIRST DECADE OF THE TWENTY-FIRST
CENTURY. COMPILED BY A TEAM OF EXPERTS AT THE COUNTRY
MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM, THE ENCYCLOPEDIA
HAS BEEN BROUGHT COMPLETELY UP-TO-DATE, WITH NEW
ENTRIES ON THE ARTISTS WHO HAVE PROFOUNDLY INFLUENCED
COUNTRY MUSIC IN RECENT YEARS, SUCH AS THE DIXIE CHICKS
AND KEITH URBAN. THE NEW EDITION ALSO EXPLORES THE LATEST
AND MOST CRITICAL TRENDS WITHIN THE INDUSTRY, SHEDDING LIGHT
ON SUCH TOPICS AS THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION, THE SHIFTING
POLITICS OF COUNTRY MUSIC, AND THE IMPACT OF AMERICAN
IDOL (REFLECTED IN THE STARDOM OF CARRIE UNDERWOOD).
OTHER ESSAYS COVER THE LITERATURE OF COUNTRY MUSIC, THE
IMPORTANCE OF NASHVILLE AS A MUSIC CENTER, AND THE COLORFUL
OUTFITS THAT HAVE LONG BEEN A STAPLE OF THE GENRE.
