Portraying Country Music Greats
CREDIT: © Jim McGuire/NashvillePortraits.com
WHERE: Nashville, Tennessee. WHAT: star portraits.
MAP: Nashville. Thumbnail  clicks pop-up source pages.
Jim McGuire takes portraits of music industry stars in Nashville, Tennessee, and has been doing so for thirty years. From Bill Monroe and Minnie Pearl onwards, individuals from a long list of Country Music greats have stood before his canvas.
We chose [L. to R.]:  Emmylou Harris;  Johnny Cash & Billy Graham;  Tammy Wynette;  Lester Flatt; and  Dolly Parton for the thumbnail strip. It was not an easy choice, and we are still having second thoughts about several omissions.
Check out Jim's album covers, if you have a fast connection, or are prepared to wait: one can but envy someone whose body of work is so vast that he has to check out his online credits because he has forgotten many of the covers he shot. The individual pictures are generously sized, but slow to load because of the anti piracy software; so we suggest paging through the ten galleries first. If you fail to recognize a face, you must have been living under a rock for the second half of the twentieth century.

Oh, what a day-to-day business life is.
