Write The First Customer Review

The first recording hit out of Nashville, the capital of country music, was ironically the popular song "Near You", recorded by Francis Craig and his orchestra in January 1947. The record became a popular sensation, sitting at the number-one spot on Billboard's charts for more consecutive weeks than any song in history. In this biography, Nashville author and physician Robert W. Ikard provides an entertaining look at Craig's life and his orchestra, including alumni members Dinah Shore and Snooky Lanson.
