“Country music profoundly shaped the British Invasion, but has not received the attention it deserves. David Bedford’s impeccable research provides an in-depth look at how Country and Western reached Liverpool, turning the city into the “Nashville of the North”; how the city developed its own country stars; and how the Beatles were influenced by the music. The Country of Liverpool is an invaluable resource that sheds greater light onto how the city and the country genre helped transform the music of the 1960s—transformations that still resound today.”
