Born in 1935 in a log cabin, left-handed Jack Boswell taught himself to play the piano in high school, reaching over to play the melody with his left hand, while playing the bass rhythm and chords with his right. Within two weeks he could play by ear any tune requested of him, and his cross-handed piano style became legendary.
Jack’s career in country music spanned over thirty years and was followed by a country gospel music ministry that covered another twenty-seven years.
His band, The Country Starliters, served as the warm-up band for many Nashville headliners, an experience that not only afforded him the opportunity to build friendships with these stars, but also provided years of priceless memories. By the time he entered the gates of Heaven in 2011, Jack had performed with nineteen artists who are now enshrined in the Country Music Hall of Fame.
The book is optionally available with a companion CD containing live performance recordings of the Jack Boswell Band.
The CD can also be ordered alone.

I loved the book ‘From a cabin to a stage.’ Thank yo so much for carrying this book and allowing the family to tell the story about a great musician. Very well written.
