The highly anticipated authorised biography of acoustic guitar legend Tony Rice is now in the final stages of production and will be released in the very near future.

Many consider Rice the greatest acoustic guitar player of all time. Still Inside: The Tony Rice Story, written by Tim Stafford and Caroline Wright, is Tony’s incredible life in his own words and those of witnesses, friends, family, and fellow musicians.

The biography covers Tony’s entire life from toddler to living legend, from North Carolina to California, from bluegrass to jazz and all points in between. Tony discusses his real and musical family, his biggest influences, his greatest moments and tragedies such as the loss of his father, his first gigs to his latest, and finally his voice.

The book is full of eyewitness accounts from the people who were there when it all happened. His mother Louise and many other family members share their memories of Tony’s life as a child all the way up to today.

Musicians such as Sam Bush, J.D. Crowe, Jerry Douglas, David Grisman, Alison Krauss, Ricky Skaggs, and many many others share their stories of Tony and how it all began back in the days of playing bluegrass when bluegrass wasn’t so cool. Over 100 people were interviewed for this exhaustive book, which has been ten years in the making.
