Praise for A Few Honest Words
"Howard skillfully documents a new era of Kentucky roots music. His book deserves a place in the history of American song."
"Howard...traces Kentucky's role as a crossroads of roots music. Howard shows how Kentucky's unique culture and even its landscape have influenced music artists and writers across musical genres."
--CMT (Country Music Television)
"A Few Honest Words is...an entertaining study of the heart of American roots music."
"Jason Howard could write about the merits of various breakfast cereals and hold my interest."
"Howard...broadens the definition of Kentucky music. These musicians may be unfamiliar to many of us, but Howard sheds light on their talent and influence, thereby giving them their just due."
--Bowling Green Daily News
"Howard...[has] taken his...local pride to the next level with "A Few Honest Words." [He] is proud to merge the old with the new, treating Judd and Yoakam as reverentially as lesser-known talents."
