They wrote that when Carl first joined the Opry, he wore the traditional cowboy suits and kept doing so until one evening, his friend Ernest Tubb appeared on the Opry wearing a suit just like one he had. At that point, Carl's thought was to change his mode of dress to enable him to have a sort of individuality to set him apart a bit. So, Carl Smith and the Tunesmiths began appearing in casual sports clothes. It wasn't until later only that Carl went back to wearing the more Hollywood-type cowboy suits that were created by the legendary Nudie of Hollywood.
This was a 'free show' for the fans as it traveled to various venues around the country. The show ran for 16 consecutive months, a series of one-nighters. The first free show was to Philip Morris employees in Richmond, Virginia.
The first free public show was on January 13, in Louisville, Kentucky. The Philip Morris Country Music Show got a lot of coverage as one might expect by the country music publications of the day and initially was favorable. Country Music had been a part of such sponsored shows in the past, where the sponsored shows were used to sell a product.
One can recall the old medicine show days. The Hadacol Company sponsored such a show earlier in the decade - with such stars as Hank Williams and Minnie Pearl used as entertainers to draw folks to the shows who had to buy a bottle of Hadacol to see the shows. Early on the press wrote of the lofty aims of the show. Parker McComas, then president of Philip Morris is quoted as stating, " Our aim is to make good live entertainment available to the people.
We hope, in the process, to further the careers of some fine artists who are already stars and help to introduce promising new talent. We hope to meet lots of fine people. And people are responsible for the success of our business.
However, the magazine saw a new editor come on board, Ben A. Green covered the history of the 'free shows' and pointed out that the new show itself had begun to subtly not be so free for it seems in the April 29 show, fnas had to provide a 'proof-of-purchase' of a Philip Morris product to gain entrance, thus potentially changing and even reducing the audience the show would entertain. Green laments that it hurt the careers of the artists, trying to relate being a part of the show as evidence of slowing record sales for the artists.
But that doesn't seem to hold when you look at the lengthy careers many of the stars of this show enjoyed. But the show seemed to hurt most of all the "outside artists" as Mr. Sing Her a Love Song 5. Lovin' Is Livin' 6. Trademark 8. This Orchid Means Goodbye 9.
Do I Like It? Darlin' Am I the One Hey Joe! I'm honestly not sure I can move on to my next book right after finishing this. I feel like at the end, I finally understood the pain Emilia felt, and how trauma shaped her life and the way she thought. Feb 08, Lauren rated it it was amazing. One of the most beautiful, haunting books I've ever read. This is a story of a sad story about a girl who when through a horrific event and never healed from it. Full review will be posted as part of the Blog Tour.
The premise of the story alone is what caught my attention. The story is about the aftermath of a violent sexual attack that happened to Emilia when she was young.
She was far more fragile and br This is a story of a sad story about a girl who when through a horrific event and never healed from it. She was far more fragile and broken than she realized. This was a tough story to get through but I felt it was a necessary story. Everything could come back so vividly, as if reliving. I do speak from experience as I have severe PTSD not military and have flashbacks even though my event took place 15 years ago.
That was yet another driving factor for me to want to get my hands on this book. I really hope it lets girls — and boys!
This story switched back and forth from past to present. I felt she captured the fractured mind and fragile spirit of the victim perfectly. The poor girl flipped back and forth between rebelling, as most teenagers do, and believing her bizarre fantasies she was actually a bird. I felt this gave a deeper level of concern for the true well-being to the character. I just wanted to hold Emilia and tell her everything would be okay. He was such a darling character, however, it is mentioned a couple of times that he is a cross-dresser.
While characters like this are rarely mentioned in stories, I wish the story line was either expanded upon or not included at all. After reading about his inner turmoil, I wanted to know more about him but it never happened.
Overall, it did not add to the actual story and that made me sad. Not all characters in this story were perfect. Those people needed professional help.
I felt their mother was in denial and the absent father needed a slap in the face. The mother knew something was wrong with her daughter but instead of doing something, she let it all play out. Overall, this was a powerful story and a hard one to get through without shedding a tear.
My heart shattered for the entire family. They were all afraid to do what needed to be done, fearful to speak up. I would read a little bit, put the book down and walk away, only to come back to it a short time later.
Jul 19, Lacey rated it really liked it. First Thoughts: Caution! There are no words to express how deep this book cut down to my soul. There isn't a pretty way to put how torn up I got after the last word was read. If you're looking for a happy and simple read, this book isn't for you. There's so much texture and real life scenarios that it made it all the more real. This book really messed with me emotionally and I think those are sometimes the best kind of books Summ First Thoughts: Caution!
Summary: Emilia DeJesus was a victim of sexual assault when she was a young kid. But now in her later teens things begin to change. She remembers parts of it and thought she knew for sure who the assailant was but soon that all comes to surface when new evidence is brought forward. Soon Emilia's life is turned upside down and her life becomes this big pool of water where she can hardly get her head above surface.
She soon starts to find a place of her own that she can control, while her life is torn to pieces. Even her current boyfriend, brother and mother try to get her through her life but will it be in time to save Emilia before it's too late? Plot: Emilia is the main focus of this story and her struggles to come to terms with her assault.
And on top of that though it's not discussed in detail her mental illness in the form of hallucinations and depression. What I couldn't understand was why her mother couldn't get her the proper care she needed. Coming from someone whose been in a psych ward her illness should've ended with her there as well. If I was her mother I would definitely push the subject for the safety of my child! I mean that is one major plot hole.
But other than that it was very realistic and devastating to read. In a way the end result was the climax and that it ended in such a way it was hard to grasp what really happened!
Definitely spooky in the sense of her mind but enlightening in a sense I learned how her mind worked. I've been interested in psychology for a while now and it was fun to learn the inner-workings of Emilia's mind.
Lot's of turns and pivots but enough slow moments to allow you to gather yourself and move forward. Romance: There was romance in this story but it wasn't really the main focus. Yes Emilia's boyfriend did everything he could to help her but I think Emilia herself wasn't focused on their relationship. It was heartbreaking to read such dedication of her boyfriend and how far gone Emilia was at points. But other than that I wouldn't say this was a romance novel.
Characters: Emilia was a character I could understand but not all the way relate to. I'm not as far gone in mental illness than she was in the book. But Emilia was complex and full of texture, meaning she had so many angles and details to her that I'm still not sure I fully grasped them all.
But I liked her in a way that she was trying to fight all her demons. The friend she met in the story was an interesting choice. The friend was a friend and not a friend at the same time. They were both wrapped up in themselves to understand each other.
I'm still trying to determine whether the friend added to the story or just was there. Emilia's support system like her brother, mother, and boyfriend were very nice to meet and read alongside them. They definitely made the story the way it was meant to be. They made the reader to understand that Emilia had people that cared about her and wanted to see her pull through and create a better life for herself!
Transformation of Character: This is a tricky part of this book. In a way I think I saw some transformation in Emilia and downfalls in other parts. Keith Lloyd. More and More. Night Train to Memphis.

Carl Smith feat: June Carter Cash.Carl Smith came into this world born on a farm in Maynardsville, Tennessee, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Dock Smith. Like many young boys in that environment, Carl's life consisted of going to school (he walked five miles to get there) in the fall and winter months, while spending the summer months working in the fields on the family farm.
