Against the backdrop of Spartanburg's century-old classical music tradition, Music Makers tells the story of the city's other exports─ from blues and jazz musicians of the '30s, the country stars launched by WSPA Radio, to Southern Rock's own Marshall Tucker Band and beyond. Among the Spartanburg-bred musicians included in the book are the Dixie Hummingbirds, Daryle Ryce, and Joe Bennett and the Sparkletones. The book also contains an in-depth interview with the late singer/songwriter Walter Hyatt.
