dc.description.abstractSeveral years ago I was in Cleveland, Ohio, for a two-day tribute to Jimmie Rodgers, entitled "Waiting for a Train: Jimmie Rodgers’ America," sponsored by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and Case Western Reserve University. The event involved concerts by some of our best contemporary "roots" musicians and scholarly papers by leading academics and historians of country music. When I began writing a biography of Jimmie Rodgers in the early 1970s, I would never have imagined in my wildest dreams that he would someday be taken seriously and honored by big-city intellectuals way up north. It was sort of like Gourmet magazine devoting a whole issue to chicken fried steak.en_US
