New Gram Parsons biography officially released

by Dave Carew

Here at Underground Nashville, we avidly support “all things Gram Parsons.” So we’re excited to let you know the (already highly acclaimed) new book about GP has now officially been released. In Calling Me Home: Gram Parsons and the Roots of Country Rock, award-winning journalist Bob Kealing sheds eye-opening new light on GP’s groundbreaking contribution to American music and culture. Mr. Kealing draws on dozens of new interviews, uncovering information that even Gram Parsons’ most rabid fans will find fresh and revealing.

In a brief, exclusive interview with Underground Nashville, Mr. Kealing shared his feelings upon his new book’s official release:

“I’m quite proud of the reaction and reviews I’m getting, especially from those already familiar with Gram Parsons’ story,” Mr. Kealing said. “Even they are finding new revelations in this attempt to cast his story in a decidedly Southern context.”

When I asked Mr. Kealing how people may order his book, he replied, “I always urge people to support your local brick-and-mortar independent book store.” We do, too.

But if you prefer to order online, please visit (the web site of the University Press of Florida) or
