Summary
The Country Reader is an anthology of articles, reviews, and photographs originally published in the Journal of Country Music, a publication well known for its eloquent and thoroughly researched articles on country music. The Country Reader functions as an entertaining and informative primer on the history of country music, from the earliest performances and recordings on up to the recent careers of Tanya Tucker and Alan Jackson. It also includes the striking work of several outstanding photographers, complementing the lively text; and, as an aid to researchers, librarians, and longtime subscribers, it provides comprehensive subject and author listings for all articles published in the Journal of Country Music between 1971 and 1995
