Item Description...
Overview
White Soul examines the social, political and religious foundations of country music as the soul music of the white, working-class Americans. Country music gives voice to an economically battered subculture of hard-living and hard-working people who find self-expression in the music of honky-tonks and heartaches. It celebrates the "wild side of life" as a form of populist anarchism and escapist festivity. This unusual medley of sociology, theology, and country music history is also a compelling critique of the elitism of "good taste" in the dominant culture. Tex Sample challenges the church to reach out to working-class people, who have often been ignored and demeaned by churches held captive to the tastes and lifestyles of the upper middle class.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
White Soul revealed  Apr 28, 2009
Book is designed to use country music to give insight to the southern blue collar culture, how ever I found that in addition to accomplishing it's task, it also gave me insight and awaking to my own values and heritage in ways I had not anticipated.
