Summary
Foreword by Tanya Tucker. Featuring Exclusive Commentary from Merle Haggard & Willie Nelson. Cast of Characters: Freddy and Catherine Powers, Norma Powers-Marlow, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Paul Buskirk, Coach Darryl Royal, Ann Reynolds, Bill McDavid, Marc Oswald, John Rich, Tanya Tucker, Biff Adams, Mary Sarah, Pauline Reese, Linda Mitchell, Sonny Throckmorton, Joe Gilchrist, John McGinnis Sizing up Powers' influence on country music, Country Music Television has noted that throughout his 50-year career, Powers has "demonstrated a dedication to broadening the perimeters of country & western, particularly in creating a fusion of country honky-tonk and swing jazz. This interest runs throughout Powers' career," while his hometown Austin Chronicle has affectionately concluded that "Powers' name stands alongside some of country music's most enduring classics." Now, for the first time, in the pages of his memoirs, "THE SPREE OF '83," Freddy recounts first-hand the highly-entertaining and emotionally-touching story behind his decades-long roller-coaster ride through the music business, to the top of the charts, and his inspiring struggle in recent years battling Parkinson's disease, all while his legacy endured through generations of fans. Helping Freddy tell his story are exclusive interviews from fellow country music legends Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, John Rich, Tanya Tucker, The Voice finalist/Powers' protégé Mary Sarah, and hosts of other Nashville luminaries
