A candid, affectionate glimpse into the real country music scene as it was performed and lived, Honky Tonk is a parade through the early years of future great performers and already-established legends. With a visual directness that affectionately captures period details, Honky Tonk is a time capsule of an important era in country music: the graying of the first great generation country artist, but before the outlaws, urban cowboys, and a multibillion-dollar entertainment industry. Horenstein's lively portrait of the community preserves the scene where musicians and fans, cowboys and townies, converged to step out, strum, and strut their stuff.
