Now in paperback, this is an up-close-and-personal take on country music's political discord.How did the erstwhile music of the rural working class come to be the music of choice of the 'Grand Old (Republican) Party'? "Rednecks and Bluenecks" looks at the way country's increasing popularity and conservative drift parallel the transformation of the Democratic South into the heart of the Republican mainstream.Written in a "breezy, irreverent style" (Publishers Weekly), Willman explores the left- or right-wing leanings of his subjects, from heavyweights like the Dixie Chicks, Toby Keith, Steve Earle, Brooks & Dunn and Clint Black, to newer, minor artists like the Drive-By Truckers, making it clear that country is a place where a passionate American political debate is taking place.
