This text is the companion volume to "Sweet Soul Music" and "Feel Like Going Home", the author's tribute to country music and the blues and their revolutionary offspring, rockabilly, the first heady step toward rock "n" roll. In this middle volume of the trilogy the author has created 22 profiles of artists both celebrated and little known. From country legends like Ernest Tubb and Hank Snow to blues legends Big Joe Turner and Bobby "blue" Band, from latter-day outlaws Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, to rockabillies like Charlie Feathers and Sleepy Labeef, from Sam Phillips to Howlin' Wolf and Elvis Presley the author conveys the passions that drove these men to music-making.
