Ralph Stanley, with Eddie Dean
Man of Constant Sorrow: My Life and Times

A giant and legend in the music business, Ralph Stanley recounts his 60+ years in the industry with warmth, honesty, and great story-telling.  It isn't just a book about the music business - it's about rural life in the early 20th century and what it was like to grow up in those times in a corner of Appalachia.   He remained true to his vision of the Stanley Brothers sound despite trends in the music business; and late in his life experienced a renaissance when others discovered his music through the hit movie "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"  If you read "Hillbilly Elegy" you will like this book also.  This is one of my favorite autobiographies.  Check our catalog
