"With Country Music, U.S.A., Bill Malone wrote the Bible for country music history and scholarship. This groundbreaking work, now updated, is the definitive chronicle of the sweeping drama of the country music experience."—Chet Flippo, Editorial Director, CMT: Country Music Television and CMT.com

"Countiy Music, U.S.A. is the definitive history of country music and of the artists who shaped its fascinating worlds...Malone shows the reader why country music touches the hearts of its music fans throughout the world and is truly a national treasure."—William Ferris, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Former Chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities and Coeditor of the Encyclopedia of Southern Culture

Since its first publication in 1968, Bill C. Malone's Country Music, U.S.A. has won universal acclaim as the definitive history of American country music. Starting with the music's folk roots in the rural south, it traces country music from the early days of radio through the first decade of the twenty-first century. This third revised edition includes an extensive new chapter in which new coauthor Jocelyn R. Neal tracks developments in country music in the post-9/11 world, exploring the relationship between the current scene and the traditions from which the music emerged.
