All That Glitters
Country Music in America
Edited by George H. Lewis

Popular Press

"A rich source of fine and strange reading supplied by interpreters: it deserves a place in any library interested in providing its patrons with interpretations of one of America's important twentieth-century cultural contributions-country music."—Choice

This collection of essays examines modern country music in America, from its roots to today's music. Contributors look at aspects of the music as diverse as the creation of country culture in the honky tonk; the development of the Nashville music industry; and why country music singers are similar to the English romantic poets. Historians, sociologists, musicologists, folklorists, anthropologists, ethnographers, communication specialists, and journalists are all represented.
