Larry Alderman started keeping a journal in 1971 when he was 19 and first came to Nashville from Mt. Airy, North Carolina. He began referring to his entries to create a book in 2007, but he starts the book way before that with colorful stories about his earliest years back in the North Carolina hills. If you like stories about Loretta Lynn, Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams, Jr., and Travis Tritt and want an inside view of the Nashville scene or if you yearn to hear about growing up in the North Carolina hills, this is the book for you.
