Description

Born in tiny Brooklyn, Nova Scotia, Hank Snow enjoyed a musical career that spanned five decades and sales of more than 80 million albums. In I'm Movin' On, journalist Vernon Oickle chronicles Snow's hardscrabble life, from his destitute childhood in Queens County to international fame. Leaving no stone unturned in his richly detailed profile of The Singing Ranger, Oickle exposes the highs and lows of Snow's career, and his journey ("Everywhere, man") from small East Coast radio stations to the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. Includes a foreword from Hank's son, Jimmie Rodgers Snow, a timeline, discography, and 75 photographs.
