Gravesites of Southern Musicians A Guide to Over 300 Jazz, Blues, Country and Rock Performers' Burial Places Synopsis

This book is a cultural tour of the burial places of Southern musicians. It honors the gravesites of men and women who formed modern American music - over 300 blues, country and rock musicians from New Orleans to Kentucky. The gravesites of well-known musicians such as Bill Monroe, Tammy Wynette, Duane Allman and Mahalia Jackson are visited, as well as the final resting places of dozens of less well known, but vitally important, American musicians. Many pictures of gravesites are included, along with specific directions to burial sites. The book is especially thorough in relation to the most important cities in Southern music - Nashville, New Orleans and Memphis.
