The Voice by James Kaplan covers the rise, slow fall and unexpected revival of Frank Sinatra. In It’s a Long Story, singer Willie Nelson recalls the ups and downs of his long career. The Long Trail by Ian Tyson (Ian and Sylvia) tells about his rise to folk fame and his reinvention as a rancher and cowboy songwriter. His story is “written with the same plainspoken elegance as his most famous songs.” See our display in the adult section of the library for other famous lives in music.
