1 Review
One of the most exciting best-sellers in recent memory was Ralph Emery's Memories, the autobiography of the popular host of TNN's Nashville Now. Across the country, fans made the book a phenomenal success, keeping it high on the New York Times best-seller list for six months.
The reason was simple: people love Ralph Emery and his wonderful recollections about the world of country music. And now Emery, who over the course of forty years in broadcasting has come to know and launch a thousand country stars, among them Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, and Barbara Mandrell, picks up where Memories left off.
Emery himself says his first book drew on less than one percent of his memories of his years on television. With More Memories, he takes readers backstage and into the limelight with tales about dozens of top stars, including Willie Nelson, Jimmy Dean, Reba McEntire, Roger Miller, Porter Wagoner, Glen Campbell, George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks, and many, many more. Readers will travel the same roads these stars have traveled: roads of happiness, despair, excess, recovery, estrangement, and reconciliation. Their stories are at once harrowing, funny, inspiring, and heartwarming.
Within these pages, Emery uncovers new facts - and mysteries - surrounding the death of Patsy Cline; reveals how the Grammy Awards Show ended up in Nashville one year, and why it may never return there again; explains why a square-dance call during a Bob Wills show in Texas mortified the local gentry; and relates the visit of Roy Acuff's ghost to the TNN offices. And those are just a few of the memories Emery shares.
Illustrated with many never-before-seen photographs, More Memories offers a wealth of enjoyment for readers and fans everywhere.
