Written in 1997 so some of the information is a little dated, it is nevertheless an enjoyable tour through country music by using biographical sketches of some of its premier performers. Included in the sweep are the likes of Bill Monroe, Johnny Cash, and Emmylou Harris.Since the book was published, the distinctions between the genres have become increasingly blurred with Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood and other prominent crossover artists. This was a source of tension for traditionalists beginning in the 50s. The purists insisted that country was bound to rural roots and emphasized the emotional texture of music.

This stands in contrast to Hot country embraces a broader range of performers from Elvis to many of the current divas.Regardless of ones position on defining genres, Dawidoff captures the spirit of the country as it moved from a regional to a national and even international phenomenon, and established itself with a permanent spot on the American musical landscape.
