Abstract:

"The Browns - Maxine, Bonnie, and Jim Ed - are a trio of siblings that had tremendous success in the 1950s and '60s. Following in the tradition of Loretta Lynn's Coal Miner's Daughter, this memoir delves into the Browns' remarkable past, beginning with a Depression-era childhood in rural south Arkansas scarred by poverty and tragedy. From that beginning emerged a duo, Maxine and Jim Ed, who became a popular feature of Little Rock's Barnyard Frolic and, in 1954, had a Top Ten hit with "Looking Back to See." Sister Bonnie later joined them and soon they were regulars on the well-known Louisiana Hayride.

They would eventually help a young Elvis Presley get started on the show and tour with him as their opening act, and it wasn't long before he became a close friend of the family." "Early mismanagement couldn't prevent the Browns' careers from soaring. The group enjoyed a long relationship with RCA, and with Chet Atkins, and later joined the Grand Ole Opry cast."

"The Browns were central artists in the changing sound of country and American popular music at mid-century. They were part of major changes in the entertainment business and American culture in the 1950's, participated in the growing popularity of the folk music movement in the '60s, and saw the birth of rock 'n' roll up close. Illustrated with many never-before-published photographs, Looking Back to See is a story told here for the first time."--Jacket.
