1949-Dim Lights Thick Smoke & Hilbilly Music Count on CD

2008 release, an installment in this luxuriously packaged collection that highlights the history of Country music year by year, beginning in 1945 right up through 1970. The series is compiled an annotated by Grammy-winning Colin Escott. The big hits are here, but so are the classic performances that weren't necessarily big hits at the time, but became influential in the years ahead. Every volume has incredibly detailed behind-the-scenes stories, fabulously rare photos, and an ongoing history of Country music set against the backdrop of the broader American music business. 1949 begins with Vaughan Monroe's eerie 'Rider's in the Sky' and ends with another Pop-Country crossover smash, 'Mule Train'. in between, look for more classic Bluegrass from Bill Monroe and the Stanley Brothers, as well as Hank Williams' 'Lovesick Blues', Leon Payne's original 'I Love You Because', plus all the classic hits from the big artists like Ernest Tubb, Bob Wills, Floyd Tillman, Eddy Arnold, and Hank Thompson.
