The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum has reissued four historical books exploring the lives and careers of Country Music Hall of Fame members Patsy Cline, The Delmore Brothers, Jimmie Rodgers and Bob Wills.
The newly reissued books include The Life and Times of Patsy Cline by Margaret Jones,
The Delmore Brothers: Truth Is Stranger Than Publicity by Alton Delmore, My Husband, Jimmie Rodgers by Carrie Rodgers, and Bob Wills: Hubbin’ It by Ruth Sheldon.
The quality paperback books have been updated and include fresh interior designs and new cover artwork. Published by the museum’s longstanding publishing arm, CMF Press, the books are now available exclusively on the museum’s website and in its store.
The titles will be available in bookstores across the country and online outlets beginning Oct. 24 through a distribution partnership with the University of Illinois Press. The ongoing partnership between the museum and the university press aims to co-publish new works on country music and related genres as well as release and distribute significant out-of-print historical books.
