Beautiful Mess ~ The Story of Diamond Rio by Diamond Rio with Tom Roland


Beautiful Mess ~ The Story of Diamond Rio

Book Summary:

Can a band comprised of six very talented but very different musicians make
a difference with their music?

What made it possible for Diamond Rio to weather the storms inherent in the fickle world of fame and fortune and go more than two decades without a single lineup change? Any reader in search of transparency and a behind-the-scenes look into the life of the band as a unit as well as the individual lives of the players and singers will be well satisfied.

Can true loyalty exist within the competitive, seemingly unforgiving music
industry? In Beautiful Mess Marty Roe, Dan Truman, Jimmy Olander, Brian Prout,
Gene Johnson, and Dana Williams each has an entire chapter devoted to his
personal and professional life. The book’s tone is a welcome rarity—not written
from one player’s perspective, but from all six as they “meet in the middle.”
Beautiful Mess is a wild ride from the edge of disaster and a little-known
secret to an ongoing heart-warming revival.


This was a really interesting book! I have always enjoyed Diamond Rio's music but I had no ideal of the history and all they went through to get where they are now. This book is a well written and chock full of tales regarding the groups highlights and challenges as well as each of the members individual stories. I found this book to be entertaining and heartwarming; an overall good read!
