Cage the Elephant has toured the globe, sold hundreds of thousands of albums, and become, in Rolling Stone’s words, ´´one of rock’s best young bands.” Before any of that, though, Cage was just five guys from Bowling Green, a small town in southern Kentucky. In Home Grown, Craig Fehrman secured Almost Famous-levels of access to tell the story of Cage’s rise. But along the way he discovered an even bigger story - how a tiny, overlooked place like Bowling Green had itself become one of the most vibrant music scenes in the country. Through vivid storytelling and exclusive details, Home Grown traces the history of Cage, from the band forming in high school to hanging with the Foo Fighters. But the Single also explores how and why Cage keeps coming home. You’ll meet the characters and locations that make up Bowling Green’s scene: the music-first dive bar where Cage got its start; the creaky, Pirate-themed house where artists gather to jam; the radio DJ who sacrificed everything to play local music - plus a slew of exciting young bands, all in different stages of their careers. How does a music scene work, especially in a place most people assume doesn’t even have a music scene? Home Grown has the answers, and it makes a great read for music fans - or for anyone who grew up in a place like Bowling Green. Craig Fehrman is a writer who lives in Indiana. His work has appeared in The New York Times, The New Republic, and Slate, among others. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rex Anderson.

Released in 1974, Sweet Home Alabama has become synonymous with Southern rock. From its opening guitar riff, it is instantly recognizable, a raucous, irreverent defense of a Deep South state and its segregationist governor against the jabs of Neil Young. But the roots of Lynyrd Skynyrd´s best-selling anthem go much deeper than regional pride or resentment of a fellow rocker. In this fresh take on the history of an oft-debated rock classic, journalist Jonathan Bernstein traces the tune´s surprising centuries-old origins and incredible global influence, which continues to this day. Sweet Home Everywhere is the story of a song that has enthralled, enraged, and confused listeners for 40 years. Jonathan Bernstein is a freelance music journalist and fact-checker based in New York. His writing has appeared in Oxford American, Rolling Stone, Time, and American Songwriter, among others. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Stillwell.

People have a tendency to look at the worst in people. They especially have that tendency when the people are stars who have made millions of dollars in the rap industry. I have seen and recorded the worst but I choose to focus on the best. Lil Wayne is not a success because he spews explicit language, demeans black women and jumps up and down on stage with his shirt off - anyone can do that. Lil Wayne is successful because Dwayne Carter applies principles of substance underneath the symbol of the rapper. Because of those principles (that I have adapted to lessons within this book) he is without a doubt one of the greatest recording artist of our time and will live forever in the minds of those who have grown up on his music. I have personally gained from his words while videotaping his life for years, from the Carter I album through to the Carter III. These lessons that have come during nationwide tours, while at his home, on private jets, on our way to jail, overseas and more. Words spoken after the groupies had left, the security had turned in for the night, and his entourage was out. Just him, me, and the camera. No matter what and where you are in life this book contains lessons we all can benefit from! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anthony Stewart.
