A Few Honest Words: The Kentucky Roots of Popular Music
by Jason Howard. Foreword by Rodney Crowell
With native sons and daughters like Loretta Lynn, the Everly Brothers, and Merle Travis, it's no wonder the state is most often associated with folk, country, and bluegrass music. But Kentucky's contribution to American music is much broader; beyond the hallowed mandolin of Bill Monroe and banjo of the Osborne Brothers it encompasses the genres of blues, jazz, rock, gospel, and hip-hop. Explores how Kentucky's landscape, culture, and traditions have influenced notable contemporary musicians. Intimate interviews with Naomi Judd, Joan Osborne, Dwight Yoakam, The Watson Twins, Nappy Roots and others; emerging artists, and local musicians. Hardcover. 258 pp.
