Chicken Soup for the Soul: Country Music ~ Book Review & Giveaway~


Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Inspirational Stories behind 101 of Your Favorite Country Songs
By: Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hanson and Ricky Rudder
Foreword by: Ken Kragen

The Inspirational Stories behind 101 of Your Favorite Country Songs tell a story, and now many of country music's most famous singers and songwriters are sharing more of the story! These artists reveal the inspiration, influence, and background, and when and why they wrote their most famous songs, in this fresh collection of stories. The book also includes great photos of the songwriters and lyrics of many of the songs. A great gift for anyone who loves country music!

I love these Chicken Soup for the Soul Books!! They are so great to read, with all the inspirational stories. I love that you can sit down and read a few pages or the entire book depending on how much time you have. This book is great for country music lovers! This book is alittle different than the other Chicken Soup books. The stories are listed in alphabetical order by the song title. So, you can look up your favorite song and see if the story is included in this book. It has many new songs and stories as well as a collection of oldies. Check it out and see if your favorite song is included.

This book may be purchased through Amazon.
