IT’S A GOOD THING THAT NASHVILLE OPENED ITS DOORS TO NEW TALENT IN THE LATE 1980s, BECAUSE OTHERWISE THE NEW COUNTRY MUSIC ARTIST WOULD HAVE BEATEN DOWN THE DOORS. THEIR TALENT AND THEIR MESSAGE WAS NOT TO BE DENIED. INSPIRED BY THOSE DEDICATED MUSICIANS WHO HAD KEPT THE FLAMES OF TRADITIONAL COUNTRY ALIVE DURING THE DARK AGES OF POP MUSIC, SUCH NEW TRADITIONALISTS AS JOHN ANDERSON, RANDY TRAVIS, VINCE GILL, RICKY VAN SHELTON, RICKY SKAGGS, MARTY STUART, JERRY JEFF WALKER, WYNONNA, AND DWIGHT YOAKAM IMBUED THEIR COUNTRY HERITAGE WITH A FRESH SOUND, USING MODERN INSTRUMENTATION AND RECORDING TECHNIQUES. DRAWING ON SUCH VARIED INFLUENCES AS BLUEGRASS, WESTERN SWING, ROCKABILLY, SOUL, BALLADRY AND HONKY-TONK, THE INNOVATIVE NEW MUSICIANS CREATED A MOVEMENT THAT SWEPT THE NATION, BRINGING THEIR MESSAGE AND THEIR SOUND TO THE PEOPLE. AND AS THEIR MESSAGE AND THEIR SOUND TO THE PEOPLE. AND AS THE PUBLIC EMBRACED THEM COUNTRY SONGS SHOT THE TOP OF THE CHARTS, NEW COUNTRY ALBUMS TURNED PLATINUM WITH AMAZING SPEED AND REGULARITY, COUNTRY CONCERT HALLS AND DANCE CLUBS WERE FILLED WITH ENTHUSIASTIC, SOLD-OUT CROWDS, AND TOP-RATED NEW COUNTRY RADIO STATIONS PROLIFERATED. WITH ITS THEMES OF LONELINESS AND JOY, EVERYDAY CONCERNS AND FRANK EMOTIONS, THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A BASIC HONESTY ABOUT COUNTRY MUSIC. AND WITH ITS EASY SYNTHESIS OF PAST AND PRESENT FORMS AND THEMES, NEW COUNTRY MUSIC BRINGS US EVER CLOSER TO OUR ROOTS. THE STORY OF NEW COUNTRY IS THE STORY OF THIS BOOK, TOLD THROUGH THE LIVES OF THE ARTISTS THEMSELVES. FROM THE MUSICIANS WHO HELPED PIONEER NEW COUNTRY SOUNDS FROM NASHVILLE’S COUNTERPOINT IN TEXAS—MARK CHESTNUTT, HAL KETCHUM, LEE ROY PARNELL, GEORGE STRAIT AND JERRY JEFF WALKER—TO SUCH HOT NEW ARTIST AS MARY-CHYAPIN CARPENTER, GARTH BROOKS, BILLY RAY CYRUS, TRISHA YEARWOOD AND OTHERS, THE STRUGGLES AND SUCCESSES OF THESE EXCITING STARS, ARE REVEALED IN AN ANECDOTAL AND INFORMATIVE TEXT.
