READING COUNTRY MUSIC: STEEL GUITARS, OPRY STARS, AND HONKY TONK BARS by Cecilia Tichi
Country music is an American original. Perhaps the most popular music in America today, it's also big business. Bringing together a varied cadre of scholars & critics, this analyzes the inner workings of the industry, the iconology of certain stars, to the development of certain styles within the genre. Essays include: the shift from "hard-core" to "soft-shell" in recent years, Johnny Cash as a lesbian icon; gender, class and region in Dolly Parton's star image, bluegrass' gothic tradition, more. 424 pp.
