Publisher's Summary

The legendary country music songwriter known as the Storyteller delivers the genre's most bracing, hilarious, and unique memoir, bringing to life long-gone characters from Nashville's streets and barrooms and detailing his one-of-a-kind journey in music. This expanded edition of Hall'soriginal 1979 book includes never-before-heard poems and vignettes - read by the author - and new chapters that bring us up to date with Hall as he sits with President Carter, caps his recording career, quits drinking, ponders his legacy, examines the creative process, and retires from the music industry. "If youwant to retire, go ahead," he says. "Life will still present innumerable occasions for you to go out and make an ass of yourself."

An underrated classic

Any additional comments?

This audiobook is brilliant and hardly anyone knows about it. It doesn't matter how you feel about Tom T. Hall... his anecdotes and voice make this an engrossing story that will sweep you along and keep you engaged. The story follows Hall from his arrival in Nashville as an aspiring songwriter until he made it to the Grand Ole Opry and the top of Music City. But it's not a biography... it's a memoir about craft told in a manner that only Tom T. can tell. I love this book, I've listened to it 5 or 6 times now. Even my wife liked it, and she's much pickier than me. It's brilliant, just spend your credit here and thank me later.
