Webb Pierce The tenth issue of the subscription to the Country Music Greats Magazine features Webb Pierce. This issue also includes articles on Hank Thompson, Chet Atkins, Don Williams>, and more...

Teaser from the Cover Story:

As the 1950s came to a close, Webb Pierce was still Country Music's biggest star. With 13 #1 hits to his credit, more than any other artist of the decade, and a number of successful business ventures including his legendary Cedarwood publishing company, Webb had certainly become much more than just a successful country singer. But as Owen Bradley replaced Paul Cohen at Decca's helm, it heralded the dawn of a new age in Nashville's recording industry and a major turning point in country music. The 1960s would witness the birth of the "Nashville Sound," a style designed steer country music in a direction away from the pure honky tonk style Webb had done so much to help create in the previous decade. By replacing the hard, raw country sound which featured fiddle and steel with lush, pop-sounding instrumental arrangements, producers like Owen Bradley and Chet Atkins learned they could broaden country music's appeal like never before. As country music was changing in the 1960s, Webb continued to make outstanding hit records, but he was also emerging as Nashville's most visible country music icon, and his flamboyant image embodied what came to be associated with Nashville and the country music industry.
