|Dixie Hall - Click to ENLARGE|
Miss Dixie was loved by artists and fans and she loved them as well. Dixie Hall was so much more than just a songwriter. She lived what she preached. She would put artists together to create collections of wonderful music like the Daughters of Bluegrass collection. Being that she was born in England and came to America in 1961. Appalachia and its music were not in her native roots.
She had a strong appreciation for the music as a child and those roots were valuable once she set foot on the soil of those songs. Once she became a part of the music, the culture, the people and life of that region, her songwriting about these things really took off.
