Chicken Soup for the Soul: Country Music...Review & Giveaway!
Songs tell a story, and now many of country music’s most famous singers and songwriters are sharing more of the story! These artists reveal the inspiration, influence, and background, and when and why they wrote their most famous songs, in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Country Music. The book also includes great photos of the songwriters and all of the lyrics. A great gift for anyone who loves country music!
My take? Well, I am already a huge fan of the Chicken Soup books but I found this one particularly interesting. I would not call myself a huge country music fan but I like a lot of the more popular songs and lots of ones which were included in this book. I found it so interesting to know the story behind the songs and now the songs hold so much more meaning when I hear them. Each song featured has a photo of the song writer, the story about the song as well as the lyrics. I am still emotional after reading the story behind "Holes in the Floor of Heaven" and I was surprised to hear that "The Dance" sprung from the movie Peggy Sue Got Married! This is a great read for any music fan! You can pick up your copy today on Amazon...
