Don Reid is a member of the Gospel Music Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame. He was the lead singer of the Statler Brothers a band that was active from 1955 until 2002 and produced 21 gold and platinum albums. Reid has written eleven books since his retirement and return to his hometown of Stanton. Virginia. This one is published as a novel, perhaps to protect the guilty, but it does parallel his own growing up years fairly closely. “I love books, especially very well-written books, by real authors who have a wonderful story to tell – and have a gift that they employ making that story come alive in your heart and mind as you read it. . . . Such a book is Piano Days, and such a writer is Don Reid. He lived this life and all the stories and people are real.” – Pat Boone.
