Summary
Bob Wills's remarkable career and extraordinary life can be seen in a very personal way in this exceptional biography and moving memoir written by his daughter, Rosetta. Revealing the inside story of Wills's offstage life, The King of Western Swing - through narrative, letter extracts, postcards, diary excerpts, and many never-before-seen archival photographs - chronicles five generations of the Wills family in this intertwining tale of a country music legend and the daughter he left behind. From his five marriages to his gold record for "San Antonio Rose," from his destructive drinking to his induction into the Nashville Country Music Hall of Fame, Bob Wills's life story comes alive as it never has before
