Definitely skimmed through her chapters on God, but in the end it was a really delightful read about the Queen of Rockabilly!

    2. A delight. The spirit you hear behind "Hot Dog! That Made Him Mad!" is present in every chapter here, and her collaboration with Bomar results in a sprightly, witty read. So many neat (and hilarious) revelations here. HIGHLY recommended.

When she began performing as a teen, [...]
