Picks and Pans Review: The Grand Ole Opry History of Country Music

UPDATED 12/18/1995 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 12/18/1995 at 01:00 AM EST

by Paul Kingsbury

In this affectionate tribute to country music and the radio show that made it famous, Kingsbury traces the Nashville sound from Hank and Patsy through Garth and Mary Chapin. Diehards will revel in the Opry trivia, while denim-and-diamonds dilettantes may simply want to linger over the backstage photos. Whether you're a longtime fan or just a country-come-lately, it'll get you humming. (Villard $40)
