Stan Hitchcock, the visionary behind CMT, the Americana Television Network, and BlueHighways TV has written an insightful memoir about the making of Nashville’s Music Row. From the discovery of Tammy Wynette to Garth Brooks beginnings, Stan was there.

The book is a real life adventure written by Stan Hitchcock with no ghostwriter, no co-writer just life as he lived it. Stan is a recording artist, a songwriter, a television personality...but he is most proud of being a true life Ozark Hillbilly!

Stan’s book is your personal backstage pass into a lifetime spent in the pursuit of music and the adventures along the way. Read stories of Mel Tillis, Tammy Wynette, Red Foley, Roy Acuff, Little Jimmy Dickens and other legends as they forged a business out of their music. You’ll travel the back roads to gigs in the early years with Loretta Lynn, Ernest Tubb, Stringbean, Lefty Frizzell, Bobby Bare and more. The book gives a glimpse into the bare beginnings of country music that has never been documented with such insight and delightful description. Stan Hitchcock was there.
