LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

I n November 1949, Red Foley spent a little over three days in the studio and emerged with eight Top 10 hits, including the first million-selling country record cut in Nashville. Those records are still considered undying classics.

Two upstart pop-rock bands from Nashville are stepping out with the muscle of the Walt Disney corporation pushing hard behind them.

Dolly Parton is the latest mainstream artist to release an exceptional bluegrass album, with results that are more emotionally direct than anything rock and roll has offered since the early part of this decade.

Plus, Wynton Marsalis, Flathead, Danny Barnes and Mark Rubin of Bad Livers, the Old 97's, and more.
