On my way to PT, I heard a simple but wonderful interview on All Things Considered, C&W artist Marty Stuart talking about a book of photos he’s taken over the years. Photographing The Masters Of Country Music. There’s a link for listening.

Here’s the last photo of Johnny Cash (a killer in my favorite series of all time, Columbo, in which he plays, what else, a C&W star).

I confess to not being a fan of the traditional C&W. I’m more partial to the cross-over stuff, and often run to music from female artists, such as Lee Ann Womack and the Dixie Chicks.
