    There were parts of this book that were interesting. It was at its best when it talked about the country music industry. Bobby Braddock is a songwriter and music producer in Nashville and has written some of the best known songs in country music. Probably the best known in He Stopped Loving Her Today. His most notable client as a producer is probably Blake Shelton. But his long stories about his love life left me thinking "oh no, not again." He brags too much about how beautiful the women are, b There were parts of this book that were interesting. It was at its best when it talked about the country music industry.

He brags too much about how beautiful the women are, but they always seem to have some flaw. He seems to be pretty honest about his own flaws, which include cheating on them. The rest of the book comes across as "look who I know or who I met".

    A Life on Nashville's Music Row chronicles Braddock's 50 years on Music Row and contains the inspiration behind many of his great songs, as well as insights into the many great artists he's worked with over the years. He talks a lot about his failed relationships, which is probably not as interesting as the stuff that relates directly to songwriting, but certainly gives you a window into his deeply tortured soul. The battles he had to fight to even get Blake Shelton to radio also make for intere A Life on Nashville's Music Row chronicles Braddock's 50 years on Music Row and contains the inspiration behind many of his great songs, as well as insights into the many great artists he's worked with over the years.

The battles he had to fight to even get Blake Shelton to radio also make for interesting reading. One of the best Nashville/songwriting books I've ever read!

    I was so disappointed with this book it appeared to have been written in a hurry and wasn't thought out properly, it didn't tell me anything I didn't previously know, it was full of half truths, boring I was so disappointed with this book it appeared to have been written in a hurry and wasn't thought out properly, it didn't tell me anything I didn't previously know, it was full of half truths, boring

    This book was interesting in parts to learn about how the country music industry grew over the past decades, and to learn more about how the different people in the industry work together. At times it didn’t flow that well and kind of felt like random notes about famous people he had met, that really didn’t add to the story.

    I liked it, particularly at the beginning, but there was a bit too much of his personal struggle with relationships.

    This is easily the most disappointing book I've read in a long time. It was clearly written in a hurry with very little thought, yes Bobby is a good songwriter WHEN HE COWRITES WITH OTHER SONGWRITERS. I thought biographies were supposed to reflect the truth but I know for a fact that more than half of this book is pure fantasy. This is easily the most disappointing book I've read in a long time.
