Another winner is guaranteed for author Mike Streissguth whose 8th book "Outlaw - Waylon, Willie, Kris, & the Renegades of Nashville" was published in hardback in 2013 by Itbooks, an imprint of Harper Collins. This book must confirm his crown as the no.1 Country Music Biographer, for no reputable writer has come close to his successful output in that genre. Since his first long since out-of-print work in 1997 "Eddy Arnold - Pioneer of the Nashville Sound" published in hardback by Schirmer, he has fashioned a series of the finest biographical books on country music ever published which include Eddy Arnold, Jim Reeves, Rosanne Cash, Johnny Cash & now with his latest, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson & other notable outlaw renegades.

Mike Streissguth is a professor in the Department of Communication & Film Studies at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New York & has written for Mojo, the Journal of Country Music and many other publications. He has written & produced two documentary films, "Record Paradise" & "Johnny Cash at Fulsom Prison."

If you are interested at all in the history of country music & the key players in the Nashville music scene of the late sixties & seventies, then you need this book, an excellent read which you can't put down. His first book on Eddy Arnold, reprinted in paperback in 2009 and published by the University of Mississsippi is currently still available.

We learn that Mike was very recently busy in Nashville promoting his 8th book. We wish it every success.
