Listeners may not know the name Gerry Wood when they begin Tales From Country Music, but even casual fans of country can rest assured Mr. Wood will know some of their favorite performers…and some of those performers' craziest stories. All the greats are here -Willie Nelson as a young, clean-cut songwriter full of ambition, or Conway Twitty, who famously rules his tour bus like an ironfisted Mother Superior. The truth-is-stranger-than-fiction account of an ill-fated train ride to Nashville with Jimmy Buffet is worth the price of admission on its own. Narrator Erik Davies brings a clear and personable energy to this collection of stories that are by turns moving, incredible, and hilarious.
Follow Gerry Wood on his journey with country music's biggest stars, featuring Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Shania Twain and many more familiar names in the industry. Tales from Country Music will take you backstage and behind the scenes with some of your favorite country music singers.
I would probably have enjoyed this book a little more if there were a few stories from this decade or more stories about my favorite classic artists. But, there are some great stories and it's a good look behind the curtain.
