THE ORIGINAL GOOBER: The Life & Times of James G. Buchanan

By Ruth Bland White

A pioneering country musician-comic, Buchanan lived to be 100, and at one time performed with Opry great Porter Wagoner. Read about his heartaches, as well as happier days, in this rare slice of Americana from the author who gave us “Every Highway Out Of Nashville,” an insightful reminiscence of hardy road musicians; “You Can Make It If You Try,” the bio of Nashville R&B pioneer music maker Ted Jarrett; and “Nashville Steeler,” the story of guitarist Don Davis of Pee Wee King’s Golden West Cowboys, who twice wed to Anita Carter of Country’s first family.

Goober Buchanan’s biography is still available in soft-cover version ($15).
