Comment soon to win a personalized Tony Rice bio

Time is running out to get your entry in to win a personally autographed copy of the new tony Rice biography, Still Inside – The Tony Rice Story. Word Of Mouth Press is giving away five copies to readers of Bluegrass Today, each autographed and inscribed by Tony this weekend at Merlefest.

The book is one that any acoustic guitarist, bluegrass fan or admirer of Tony’s music will want to have in their library. Written and edited by Tim Stafford and Caroline Wright, it includes Tony’s life story in his own words plus reflections from many of his friends, family and musical collaborators – plus loads of fabulous photos.

To enter to win your autographed copy, simply post a comment on our earlier post announcing the contest, explaining what effect Tony Rice’s music has had on you.

Tim Stafford and Bobby Starnes from Word Of Mouth will narrow down the best entries that come in by Thursday (April 29), and have Tony select the five winners at Merlefest.

You know you want one – enter now!

UPDATE 4/29: Tim Stafford just passed along this tidbit, with an important point for anyone attending Merlefest this weekend.

“Tony, Caroline Wright and I will be at Merlefest tomorrow through Sunday to sign books. This may be the only chance to get Tony and both authors together to sign since Caroline lives in Hawaii and isn’t here very often.”

Don’t forget to get your entry in to win an autographed copy. The finalists will be chosen later today.

If you have entered, keep an eye on your email this weekend, as we will be contacting the winners for personalization details.

  • It’s pretty simple for me. You have to admire a person that dedicates his life to one thing in order to learn it in totality.
    Most people flutter from one thing to another and never put the time into any one thing that it takes to make you understand the guitar like TR. Another admirable trait is his sticking to music even after losing his voice. He could have quit, but quit “ain’t in him.”
