Description Roy Acuff was called the King of Country Music and for more than 60 years he lived up to that title. If any performer ever embodied the spirit of country music, it was Roy Acuff. Throughout his career, Acuff was a champion for traditional country music values and he enforced his beliefs as a performer, a music performer, and as the Grand Master of the Grand Old Opry. Acuff was the first country music superstar after the death of Jimmie Rodgers and he pioneered an influential vocal style that complemented the spare, simple songs he was performing. Other country superstars, including Hank Williams and George Jones were influenced by Acuff, and countless others have paid respects to him. Now for the very first time all the first 100 sides of this seminal and hugely influential artist are re-issued together. These four cds include tracks never previously re-issued the originals of which were tracked down in the rarest 78 collections.
