From the Back Cover:

George Hamilton IV, one of America's greatest music stars, has enjoyed numerous chart successes in a career spanning half a century. His most famous hits include: Abilene, Canadian Pacific, A Rose and a Baby Ruth and Steel Rail Blues. He worked with some of the greatest Rock 'n' Roll artists--Elvis, Little Richard, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, and the Everly Brothers--although his first love was country music and the Grand Ole Opry.

From his birth in North Carolina in 1937, Ambassador of Country Music traces Hamilton's rising fame, and the pressures of touring and a thriving career that threatened his family life. It reveals the tough times in Nashville when George turned his back on "pop" to concentrate on country music, and describes how most of George's life was spent coasting along in "token Christianity", until he "nailed his colours to the mast" in a dramatic way.

This inspiring book is essential reading for adherents of Country Music and Gospel Music alike. It tells of a winsome personality of skill and integrity, worthy of the role model that he has become.
