Any fan of Diamond Rio would love reading this book JUST BECAUSE Diamond Rio wrote the book! If you are looking for this country band's background and early childhood experiences, then you are right where you are supposed to be! but I was looking for much more. Diamond Rio's music, the very heart and soul of this group, is what I was looking for.
I wanted to hear about the MUSIC, not each member's childhood. Though I will admit that after all, the experiences of childhood can sometimes make the man. Yet in this case, the beauty and lasting song lyrics are not something you glean from your youth. Maturity makes the man. I want to be able to reach down and grab their hearts;I want to be able to know the depths of their music and react accordingly. But this book din't give me what I sought. I love Diamond Rio's music and I so wanted to connect to this book as I connect to their music. Alas, it wasn't meant to be!
1 Winner will recive a copy of Diamond Rio's book, "Beautiful Mess."
