Description

Some of the great artists in US music celebrate that most American of institutions; the automobile, as well as the roads and highways that carry them.

From those groups that sat on the church pew exalting the Lord to those singers who saluted the men that filled the well-worn leather seat of a long-distance truck, no genre of American music wasn't touched by the rise of the car as can be heard in this all-encompassing compilation.

This 4 CD, 100 track set comes with a 28 page booklet with essay and discographical information.

This set makes a great companion to Lonesome Whistle - An Anthology Of American Railroad Song (PROPERBOX168).
