A collection of stories about childhood and growing up, using a variety of settings.
Twelve of the biggest stars of country music -- Vince Gill, George Jones, Brenda Lee, Patty Loveless, Loretta Lynn, Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, LeAnn Rimes, Marty Stuart, Pam Tillis, and Trisha Yearwood -- shared childhood memories and dreams with Julie Clay, who delights us with their stories. The stories they tell are as emotionally rich as the songs they sing. From the poignancy of Brenda Lee's relationship with her father to the comedy of Trisha Yearwood's early attempts at stardom, this is the book for families to read together, again and again. Each of the tales is followed by biographical information highlighting the artist's career and the background of the story. Dan Andreasen's richly painted illustrations, steeped in American tradition yet sparklingly new, perfectly complement the warmth and humor of these memorable stories.
