THE definitive resource on the Texas Troubadour. Unfortunately, the book suffers both from a subject that isn't too wildly fascinating and a painfully good attention to detail and facts. Tubb led a mildly interesting life, but nothing good enough for exciting reading or feeling any sort of emotional power like the Carter Family. I still love his music and I certainly learned a lot from this book, but I would never recommend it to someone who isn't trying to study country music like I am.
