Women have been important players in the recording industry from the very beginning, but not until 1996 did they out-chart their male competitors and pull ahead in the race for hits. Go, Girl, Go! provides a nearly 100-year history of women in music, beginning with Lil Hardin Armstrong and Billie Holiday, and continuing up to present-day artists such as Britney Spears and Norah Jones. The book features a thoughtful analysis of the 1996 revolution, along with interviews with artists such as Shania Twain, Pat Benatar, Brenda Lee, Bonnie Raitt, Melissa Etheridge, Ann and Nancy Wilson, Tiffany, and Tammy Wynette, and executives such as Garth Brooks' ex-manager Pam Lewis, BMI head Frances Preston, Stax Records co-founder Estelle Axton, and Tracey Edmonds of Yab Yum Entertainment.
The only definitive history of the women who have made popular music during the past 100 years. Mentions over 185 different women musicians and industry executives. Over 50 black and white photos.
Author James L. Dickerson was born and raised at the intersection of Highways 61 and 82, the heralded crossroads of "the blues" in the Mississippi Delta. That music was his inspiration and he’s become the dominant voice in the South on matters related to music, politics, and culture. With more than 18 non-fiction books under his belt, he’s written about everyone from Elvis Presley and Colonel Tom Parker to Ashley Judd to Faith Hill and Lil’ Hardin Armstrong.
