Barry Mazor's Meeting Jimmie Rodgers

Barry Mazor's Meeting Jimmie Rodgers: How America's Original Roots Music Hero Changed the Pop Sounds of a Century is not a biography of Jimmie Rodgers, it's a biography of Rodgers' music, tracing its influence through the 20th century and into the 21st. Mazor does something that too few music writers do, examining how the music has become a part of our general culture. After all, Rodgers isn't the Father of Country Music because he was born in Mississippi—it's because of the way his songs continue to resonate and influence other musicians. BETSY PHILLIPS
