How To Write A Bestselling Country Music Song

How To Write A Bestselling Country Music Song

  • How to Write a Bestselling Country Music Song

A fun gift for any country music fan with a sense of humor. People have joked for a long time that country music songs follow the same approach over and over again, everyone singing about the same things. This book taps into that long running joke by teaching us how to write a bestselling country music song. But the joke is on the inside…once opened, the book gives the same advice over and over on each page: to write a bestselling song, choose 2 of 3 topics (Your wife left you. You got drunk. Your dog died.) and add music! Presto! A hit song!

San Antonio Rose: The Life and Music of Bob Wills

San Antonio Rose: The Life and Music of Bob Wills

  • Bob Wills
  • Charles Townsend

Merle Haggard called him “the best damn fiddle player in the world.” A New York Times obituary said he was ” a super-giant before there were super-giants, an Elvis Presley of the nineteen-thirties and forties.” In Texas, at least, according to Waylon Jennings, Bob Wills is still the king. This is the man, the life, and the music dealt with in this book.

The Storyteller’s Nashville: A Gritty & Glorious Life in Country Music

The Storyteller’s Nashville: A Gritty & Glorious Life in Country Music

The Nashville we know today is a glitzy big business characterized by entertainment lawyers, social media strategies, and buff, shiny entertainers writing about pick-up trucks, tractors, and dirt roads in air-conditioned, corporate offices. But, back before the coats of glamour and media spotlights, Nashville was a very different place.
“The Storyteller’s Nashville” is about a fabled town that once was, but no longer exists. The Nashville that Tom T. Hall wrote about — the “hairy-legged town” where hungry, broke musicians searched for their next meal, pill-popping pickers scammed their next hit, and writers found art in moments of quiet, solitary desperation – is the true foundation upon which today’s modern Music City rests. “The Storyteller’s Nashville” is also about a man whose songs irrevocably altered the history of that same town as well as the music for which it remains best known. And, while “The Storyteller’s Nashville” is no longer an up-to-date picture of Music City, it is a valuable window into the nature of the art and creation during its formative days. In the early 1980s, someone asked Johnny Cash what Nashville was really like. Cash said, “Just read The Storyteller’s Nashville by Tom T. Hall. Everything you need to know is in there.”
Tom T. Hall is a Country Music Hall of Famer for many reasons, including the hit songs he wrote, his three decades as a popular entertainer, and the fact that he and a wild-eyed pack of youngsters that included Kris Kristofferson, Roger Miller, Mickey Newbury and John Hartford elevated the language of country music from simple tales into something akin to literature. The wondrous George Jones called Hall “By far the all-time greatest songwriter/storyteller that country music has ever had.”
Initially published in 1979, this revised and expanded edition of The Storyteller’s Nashville includes Tom T. Hall’s thoughts on the years after 1979: he shares his deep friendship with Jimmy Carter; brings us Johnny Cash’s thoughts on humility; and reflects on the challenging confluences of celebrity, art and the most dangerous addiction known to musicians: applause.
“The Storyteller’s Nashville” is illuminating and hilarious, ribald and touching and, above all, entertaining. It’s Tom T.’s greatest song and it’s now longer. And even better.

Music of Bill Monroe From 1936-1994

  • Bill Monroe’s Music from 1936-1994
  • Includes 98 Songs
  • Includes Some Songs Never Before Released
  • Includes Some Songs Never Before Released in the US
  • Built-In Booklet With Lots of Photos and Commentary

4-CD set with built-in booklet. Includes 98 songs by Bill Monroe, some of which have never before been released, or have never before been released in the United States.It’s the rare artist who virtually invents a genre single-handedly, and there’s no artist in any genre whose work has remained as dominant a force as Bill Monroe. The songs here not only define bluegrass, they remain the core of any bluegrass band’s repertoire. Monroe added a dose of sophistication to traditional hillbilly music–intricate group harmonies, expert musicianship–and he rehearsed his Blue Grass Boys for hours on end. MCA’s lavish 4 CD set covers 60 years and 98 songs, adding detailed notes and anecdotes. Beginning with 1936 duets with brother Charlie, the list of Blue Grass Boys reads like a roster of legends: Flatt and Scruggs, Chubby Wise, Mac Wiseman, Jimmy Martin, Vassar Clements, Sonny Osborne, Bobby Hicks, Kenny Baker, Bill Keith, Del McCoury, Peter Rowan, and Richard Greene; the list goes on and on, as does the legacy of Monroe’s music. –Marc Greilsamer
