Rick Bragg

“What’s country now is what’s always been country: Away from home without your wife’s permission in a twice-wrecked 1986 Ford Bronco with a Don Williams cassette forever-lodged in the tape deck, a tangle of Zebco 202 fishing rods and reels banging in the back, grinding through the foothills of the Appalachians with a Bojangles’ ham and biscuit in one hand, munching intermittently between choruses of “so what do you do, with good ol’ boys like me” and wondering how mad she will be once you get home.”

–Rick Bragg, writer

    web for that reason, and obtain the most recent information.
