Country music has always played a huge role in the story of American culture, but never has country music—in all its forms—been more of-the-moment than right now. In Melanie Dunea’s new book, MY COUNTRY: 50 Musicians on God, America & The Songs They Love, she features country music icons shot in locations from the Gran Ole Opry to a decommissioned prison in Tennessee to the shores of the Caribbean.  Alongside each portrait are a series of questions which explore the artist’s musical roots and inspirations, their defining moments, and what makes country music the heart and soul of America to them. The answers offer a revealing, highly personal look at these iconic subjects. To see more of Melanie Dunea’s work click here.
