Eddy Arnold: Pioneer of the Nashville Sound (American Made Music Series)
Publisher: University Press of Mississippi | ISBN: 1604732695 | edition 2009 | PDF | 302 pages | 29,3 mb
Illustrated with fifty-four photographs and featuring a comprehensive discography and sessionography, this book traces Eddy Arnold’s origins from a cotton farm in western Tennessee to his legendary status in the world of country music. Michael Streissguth covers Arnold’s success as a top-selling artist in the 1940s and 1950s and his temporary wane as listeners gravitated toward the rock & roll sound, embodied by newcomer Elvis Presley. Arnold (1918–2008) kept recording, however, and working on his craft. By the mid-60s, he reemerged as a pop crooner with his hit song " Make the World Go Away.” His blend of country sentiments and pop stylings created the template for Nashville’s modern country music sound. Throughout his career he was a major concert attraction and a radio and television star. Few other figures can claim to have had as great an influence on contemporary country and popular arranging.
