An underrated classic
This audiobook is brilliant and hardly anyone knows about it. It doesn't matter how you feel about Tom T. Hall... his anecdotes and voice make this an engrossing story that will sweep you along and keep you engaged. The story follows Hall from his arrival in Nashville as an aspiring songwriter until he made it to the Grand Ole Opry and the top of Music City. But it's not a biography... it's a memoir about craft told in a manner that only Tom T. can tell. I love this book, I've listened to it 5 or 6 times now. Even my wife liked it, and she's much pickier than me. It's brilliant, just spend your credit here and thank me later.
