"Drawing skillfully on historical research and family lore, Doubler reveals the many sides of Uncle Dave Macon-performer, recording artist, star of the Grand Ole Opry, mentor, husband, and father. This is an affectionate and absorbing account of a profoundly important early country musician."--Tony Russell, author of Country Music Originals: The Legends and the Lost
"Dixie Dewdrop is a valuable book, one that country music historians and Uncle Dave's many fans will welcome." --ARSC Journal
"Michael D. Doubler has given us a rich and highly nuanced portrait of the complex, highly gifted man who helped put country music on the map. As Macon's great-grandson, Doubler was able to draw on family archives and reminiscences that might otherwise be unavailable, and his excellent writing skills have allowed him to weave this material together into a compelling and entertaining narrative. " --Journal of Folklore Research
"An eminently readable chronicle." --Rambles.Net
