Inhaltsangabe: I Love You a Thousand Ways is the story of one of the most loved, respected, and imitated singer/songwriters in the history of country music, a man whose songs touched the lives of millions of people. Lefty Frizzell?s relaxed style of singing proved to be a huge influence on a wide variety of country and pop music stars such as Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, George Jones, John Fogerty, George Strait, and Tim McGraw.
In addition to his incredible vocal talents, Lefty was widely recognized for his songwriting skills. He had four songs in the country top ten at the same time in 1951—a feat that would only be repeated one more time on any chart, when The Beatles had five songs on the pop chart in 1964. Among Lefty?s many hits are: “If You?ve Got the Money, I?ve Got the Time,? “Mom and Dad?s Waltz,? “The Long Black Veil,? and “Saginaw, Michigan.?
Willie Nelson?s 1977 album, To Lefty From Willie, was a tribute to Frizzell and consisted entirely of cover versions of Frizzell songs. Fellow Texan Roy Orbison was also a devout fan of Frizzell?s sound. In 1988, as a part of the Traveling Wilburys, Orbison chose the name “Lefty Wilbury? in honor of his musical hero.
Lefty was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1972 and the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1982. He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and is a member of the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. I Love You a Thousand Ways is a long overdue, beautiful tribute to one of the most underrated musicians of all time, a man whose music continues to influence new generations of musicians and music fans.
Telling the story of one of country music?s most influential artists, this biography details the incredible journey of a brilliant singer-songwriter from his humble beginnings in Arkansas and the peak of his popularity in the 1950s and 1960s to his sudden death in 1975. An intimate portrait told from the perspective of his brother, this book reveals little-known personal information about Lefty, explores the people who influenced his music, chronicles his severe addiction to alcohol and its impact on his career, and examines the profound effect of his early death on those who knew him well. With contributions from Lefty?s family and other musicians who were close to him—including Merle Haggard and Bill Mack—this moving story provides insights into the artist?s songwriting and recording process, a close look at the creation of some of country music?s greatest hits, and never-before-seen photographs of Lefty, his family, and many famous musicians who performed with him.
