Description
This book is a cultural tour of the burial places of Southern musicians. It honors the men and women that formed modern American music. Detailed here are the gravesites of more than 300 blues, country and rock musicians through the South from New Orleans to Kentucky. The gravesites of well-known musicians such as Bill Monroe, Tammy Wynette, Duane Allman and Mahalia Jackson are visited, as well as the final resting places of dozens of less well known, but vitally important, American musicians. Many pictures of gravesites are included, along with specific directions to burial sites. The book is especially thorough in relation to the most important cities in Southern music--Nashville, New Orleans and Memphis. There are numerous side trips through Cajun country, blues related sites in Mississippi, old time country musicians' final resting places throughout Alabama and North Carolina, and many other places in all the states of the South.
