Music Biography
By Kent Gustavson, PhD

From the day he stepped off the bus in New York City, North Carolina music legend Doc Watson changed the music world forever. His influence has been recognized by presidents and by the heroes of modern music, from country stars to rock and roll icons. This is a no-holds barred biography of bluegrass’ great hero, a flatpicking legend, and the man who brought “Amazing Grace” into the public consciousness.
