Country Music USABill C. Malone, one of the most respected country music historians, is my featured guest on this KRUU Country Music Jamboree. In 1968, the first edition of Bill's book "Country Music, U.S.A." was published. "Country Music, U.S.A." was the first definitive history of country music and has been called "the Bible for country music history." Just recently re-published in it's Third Revised Edition. Bill is also the author of the books "Don't Get Above Your Raisin': Country Music and the Southern Working Class", "Singing Cowboys and Musical Mountaineers" and more. We discuss his life, writings, and country music.
