All Over the Map : True Heroes of Texas Music Paperback / softback

Part of the North Texas Lives of Musician Series series


A lavishly illustrated collection of forty-two profiles of Texas music pioneers, most underrated or overlooked, All Over the Map: True Heroes of Texas Music covers the musical landscape of a most musical state.

The first edition was published in 2005 to wide acclaim.

This second edition includes updated information, a bonus section of six behind-the-scenes heroes, and fifteen new portraits of Lefty Frizzell, Janis Joplin, and others, spanning such diverse styles as blues, country, hip-hop, conjunto, gospel, rock, and jazz. D.J. Stout and Pentagram designed the reborn edition, with photographer Scott Newton providing portraits.

Michael Corcoran has been writing about Texas music for more than thirty years, for the Dallas Morning News and Austin American Statesman, as well as in such publications as Texas Monthly and Spin.

These pieces are based on his personal interviews with their subjects as well as in-depth research.

Expertly written with flair, the book is a musical waltz across Texas.
