Country Music Stars

SLJ: Fans of these country music stars will appreciate the career facts and photographs featured in these volumes. Each book opens with a description of a poignant moment in the subject’s career, usually the performance or recording of their first big hit. Then, lists of their accomplishments are presented: Shelton was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, Underwood was the CMA Entertainer of the Year in 2009, Stapleton’s debut album went platinum, Musgraves performed on Saturday Night Live, and ­Urbran won his first Grammy in 2004. Little information is provided about their personal lives outside brief mentions of their childhoods and personal relationships, and those do not appear before the middle of each book. However, readers do learn about their hobbies, brand affiliations and charitable activities; Underwood created her own fashion line, Stapleton collects pocketknives, Shelton supports cancer research, Urban advertises for Peloton, and Musgraves is a staunch supporter of LGBTQ rights. Such details will be appreciated by their followers. Colorful photographs accompany the narratives. Unfortunately, the dense text and lack of chronological order will turn off some readers. VERDICT Ultimately, these titles will only be checked-out by diehard fans of the singers and selectors should consider the size of their county music fan base when making selection decisions.
