My newest book, 'Those Grand Ole Country Music Stars' was delivered to me three days before Christmas 2008. The book features 217 personalities alphabetically including birthdates, birth places, and death dates. Each pen-and-ink drawing is done in dots (pointillism) and takes at least twelve hours to complete. A 300 word biography covers the artists early influences, their journeys to receive a record contract, first recording hits, and honors. An attempt was made to reflect positive stories including their early beginnings of singing in church. In many cases this was a typical start to the stories. The book includes the groundbreaking singers such as the Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, Roy Acuff, Sons of the Pioneers, and also covers the newer singers, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood, and Kenny Chesney. In an appendix, the book also includes the dates each singer was invited to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry as well as when and if they were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.'David Liverett is a master when it comes to capturing the likeness and legend of each country music star featured in this collection. More than a handy reference guide, Liverett's latest book serves as a well-deserved tribute to over 200 of America's most enduring recording artists.' --Holly Miller, Senior Editor, The Saturday Evening Post'Insight and interesting stories that you didn't know about your favorite country stars. It's the one book you need in your personal library.' --Marty Raybon of the group Shenandoah
