How did the erstwhile music of the rural working class come to be the music of choice of the staunch Republicans? Rednecks and Bluenecks looks at the way country's increasing popularity and conservative drift parallel the transformation of the Democratic South into the heart of the Republican mainstream. From heavyweights like the Dixie Chicks, Steve Earle and Clint Black to newer, minor artists like the Drive-By Truckers, Willman makes it clear that country is a place where a passionate American political debate is taking place.
