This chronological history of country music spans eight decades, with a year-by-year breakdown of the significant events and important milestones. From Hank Williams and Patsy Cline to the newer sounds of Randy Travis, Billy Ray Cyrus and Garth Brooks. Beginning with decade glimpses into the twenties, thirties and early forties, before trade charts, this almanac also contains a year-by-year account of the major events in the world of country music from 1944 to 1992 - the top artists, top songs, award winners, debut artists, births, deaths and other significant events. The book features rare photographs, album covers, sheet music graphics, fan magazine covers and sidebars on topics ranging from "How Hank Williams Died" to "Heroes of Western Swing" and "Origins of the Pedal Steel Guitar".
