Walking the Line : Country Music Lyricists and American Culture Hardback

Edited by Thomas Alan Holmes, Roxanne Harde

Description

Walking the Line: Country Music Lyricists and American Culture examines how country songwriters engage with their nation's religion, literature, and politics.

Walking the line requires following strict codes, respecting territories, and, sometimes, yearning to break those bonds.

This collection's essays explore how iconic country lyricists such as Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, and Steve Earle have tested and expanded such boundaries, challenging musical, social, and political conventions, often reevaluating what "country" means in country music.
