True to the Roots: Americana Music Revealed (Paperback)Monte Dutton (author)
- Publisher out of stock
True to the Roots profiles Grammy-nominated performers (such as Brad Paisley and Pat Green) as well as those who sing for tips in local bars, and bands such as Those Guys, Reckless Kelly, and Cross Canadian Ragweed. In these pages the reader encounters Vince Pawless, a guitar maker in Gainesville, Texas, and James White, owner of the Broken Spoke, a historic honky-tonk in Austin; and musicians such as Robert Earl Keen and James McMurtry. Each of these portraits provides a unique story about this music and explains why it not only survives but thrives outside a mainstream increasingly controlled by corporate culture and commercial constraints.
