And unlike other encyclopedias, Country Music: The Encyclopedia is more than just a list of names and dates. It's the most personal country music reference book there is, filled with original, first-person interviews with stars young and old, from Garth Brooks to Patsy Cline. And in addition to the entries, 75 perscent of which are new or substantially revised, there is a series of indexes that allows you to reference song titles, album titles, performers, and types of musicas well as anything else that interests you in a general subject indexthat makes Country Music: The Encyclopedia the greatest book of its kind.
