The critically acclaimed coffee-table book, HILLBILLY HOLLYWOOD, features exceptionally rare, never-before-published photos of Elvis, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Gram Parsons, the Louvin Brothers, Buck Owens, George Jones, the Maddox Brothers and Sister Rose, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and many more rockabilly greats, singing cowboys, Western stars, and country & Western pioneers.
The book is the first serious look at the origins of country & Western style in California in the 1930s and 1940s and the first to tell the personal stories of the cowboy-tailors Nudie and Turk. The style they created was adopted by the C&W music pioneers in California–a colorful mix of working cowboy and glittering show business–and still defines fancy Western wear.
