“The Brown Trio sang with a purity and longing that put them in the spotlight. As Nashville was changing the face of music, the Browns shared the stage with Elvis and Jerry Lee—and then it was over. Take your seat as Elvis shakes those hips, Jerry Lee bays at the moon, and Chet makes that guitar sing. This is the story of a family shaped by a poor country life and a father too fond of the bottle. And it’s the story of a revolution that left them behind. The Browns were as real as their struggles and Bass solidly lays their story down.”—Deon Stonehouse, Sunriver Books & Music, Sunriver, OR
