Description - Tom T. Hall's The Storyteller's Nashville: An Inside Look at Country Music's Gritty Past by Tom T. Hall
Before the glamour and media spotlights, Nashville was a very different place. The Nashville that Tom T. Hall writes about -- the "hairy-legged town" where broke musicians searched for their next meal, pill-popping pickers scammed their next hit, and writers found art in moments of quiet, solitary desperation - is the true foundation upon which today's modern Music City rests. A valuable window into art and creation, 'The Storyteller's Nashville' is about a man whose songs along with those by buddies like Kris Kristofferson -- elevated the language of country music from a greeting card format into something akin to literature. Initially published in 1979, this revised edition includes Tom T. Hall's life after 1979: his deep friendship with Jimmy Carter; Johnny Cash's thoughts on humility; and his reflections on celebrity, art and the most dangerous addiction known to musicians: applause. Illuminating and hilarious, ribald and touching and, above all, entertaining, this is Tom T.'s greatest song and it's now longer and better.
