“The best songs come from broken hearts.

Sixteen-year-old Bird Barrett has grown up on the road, singing backup in her family’s bluegrass band, and playing everywhere from Nashville, Tennesee to Nowhere, Oklahoma. One fateful night, Bird fills in for her dad by singing lead, and a scout in the audience offers her a spotlight all her own. 

Soon Bird is caught up in a whirlwind of songwriting meetings, recording sessions, and music video shoots. Her first single hits the top twenty, and suddenly fans and paparazzi are around every corner. She’s even caught the eye of her longtime crush, fellow roving musician Adam Dean. With Bird’s star on the rise, though, tradition and ambition collide. Can Bird break out while staying true to her roots? 

In a world of glamour and gold records, a young country music star finds her voice.”

This one sounds so adorable and very Taylor Swift-y! I haven’t read Alecia’s debut The Queen of Kentucky, but I’ve heard great things. Plus, I need to read more books that are set in country/field settings!

What books are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. I love singing books, and I got to meet Alecia briefly at this signing in Pennsylvania, although I never got to buy and read her book. This one definitely sounds adorable and right up my alley, though. Thanks for sharing, Jen! <33
