Summary
This completely revised and updated edition of Irwin Stambler and Grelun Landon's landmark encyclopedia of country music isn't limited to pure country anymore; in fact, its broad range covers country, country rock, bluegrass, rockabilly, country gospel, honky-tonk, western swing, cowboy (and cowgirl!) singers, and more! And unlike other encyclopedias, Country Music: The Encyclopedia is more than just a list of names and dates. It's the most personal country reference book there is, filledwith original, first-person interviews with stars young and old, from Hank Williams to Shania Twain. In addition, the 75 percent new or substantially revised entries, and a series of indexes that allow you to reference song titles, album titles, performers, and types of music-as well as anything else that interests you in a general subject index-make Country Music: The Encyclopedia the greatest book of its kind.

Country Music: The Encyclopedia contains:
* Complete awards information, year by year
* Scores of photos of the hottest stars
* And, for the first time, a complete set of indexes-by performer, by song and album title, and general subject index-that no other country encyclopedia offers
