Are you convinced the real “day the music died” was that day in 1963 when Patsy Cline perished in a plane crash? Then this may be the book you’ve been looking for. Or not. More about the “or not” part in a minute.
“Once-A-Day Country Faith” is a collection of contributions from 56 country music artists. The compiler of the book, Deborah Evans Price, asked each artist which passage from the Bible is most meaningful to him or her and why. This book is the result. The answers are short, quick reads that vary in their spiritual depth.
Beautifully photographed and colorful, the book would make a nice gift for your favorite country music fan.
If you, like me, haven’t listened to country music since your mother used to drag you to the Ryman Auditorium on Saturday nights, you might be disappointed. No Waylon or Loretta here. If, on the other hand, you know who Josh Turner, Danny Gokey and Lauren Alaina are, you’ll probably love this book.
