This is the story of the birthplace of country music as told by the people who were there--from the birth of country music 100 years ago to the songs and culture its myriad fans know and love today. Nearly every country music icon has crossed the Grand Ole Opry stage, including Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire, Garth Brooks, and recent inductee Dierks Bentley. Drawing from detailed archives of correspondence, photographs, oral histories, and live recordings (few of which have been made public until now), this history offers fans an exclusive look into the heart and soul of country music.
