Description of Product

1995 Paperback Edition, moderate curling at outer corners, mild bend at right side of front cover.

Composite Review:

Originally published in 1935, this affectionate biography was for decades the only detailed account of the life of the "Father of Country Music." The new edition includes photographs, index, and a new, critical introduction by award-winning Rodgers biographer Nolan Porterfield.
Distributed for the Country Music Foundation Press.
Jimmie Rodgers, popularly called “the father of country music,” followed a meteoric path from poverty to fame to early death in a few short years. Combining blues, vaudeville, and Tin Pan Alley tunes with old-time mountain music, he brought so-called hillbilly music into the mainstream. His trademark yodel influenced countless other performers, in his own time and after. But beyond the echo of the yodel, Rodgers created a musical and performance style that referenced his audience’s personal experiences in songs such as “Waiting for a Train” and set the course of development for decades of commercial country music. His tragic early death from tuberculosis made him the prototype for the doomed country superstar. Nearly 70 years after his passing, Jimmie Rodgers remains an overarching figure in country music whose influence shows up in the performances of Emmylou Harris, Doc Watson, Willie Nelson, and many others.
