A volume of stunning photographs of 50 country music icons and intimate accounts of their thoughts on God, America, and their favorite songs

Award-winning photographer and author of My Last Supper, Melanie Dunea traces the throughlines from country music’s gritty roots to the chart-topping chanteuses of today, presenting beautiful, imaginative, and revealing photographs of icons ranging from Taylor Swift to Wynonna Judd to Little Jimmy Dickens and conducting interviews that ask stars to discuss their musical roots and inspirations, their defining moments, and what makes country music the heart and soul of America.

As the music industry fractures and suffers from flagging sales, country music has enjoyed explosive growth and unprecedented popularity. This totally unique book will be a must-own (and a perfect gift) for fans of the old time country twang and the millions who love the glitz and glamour of today’s country-pop. My Country is a music-lovers dream, and is sure to find its core audience amongst country music’s legions of fans.
