Twang By Julie Cannon Giveaway!

Twenty-three-year-old Jennifer Clodfelter believes she is destined to be a country music star.  When her passion, determination and homemade demo tape were rejected by every music label in Nashville, she refused to give up.  In just three years, a combination of guts and raw talent have propelled her on a journey of fame beyond her best dream.   
Now Jennifer has all she ever wanted, only to discover that there is a dark side to the glitz and number one hits.  She will have to decide whether to sing her pain to a loving audience or find the courage to face the music in the private studio of her heart.
Julie L. Cannon's roots go deep in the South's red clay. She is the author of the award-winning Homegrown Series, published by Simon & Schuster and described as "Jan Karon crossed with Fannie Flagg." Her novel, The Romance Readers' Book Club, Penguin, was named a Target Breakout Book. I'll Be Home for Christmas, Summerside Press, made Nielsen's Bestseller list, and was also named a CBA Bestseller. Her novel Twang will be released in Aug.'12 from Abingdon Press. Julie's novels explore the transcendent, the supernatural, and the irrational - where God redeems the seemingly unredeemable. Julie lives in Watkinsville, Georgia. Visit her website at for more info.
P.S. Beware - there is another author by the name of Julie Cannon, which causes a great deal of confusion because the two authors have vastly different subject matters and readerships.
It took me forever to get this book. As soon as I got it I could not wait to open it up and start reading. You see I have family in the music industry so it is a story that is very close to my heart. Julie Cannon, really has done her homework, she has a ton a knowledge of the Nasville music industry.
This is a tug at your heartstings book. I loved the characters Julie makes them come to life, you feel for them, and all of the hurt they go though.
This is the first book I have read by Julie Cannon, but I must say it will not be my last. Julie lets you see the magical in the ordinary. 5 star read for sure. This is a book that inspires you to get out your favorite CD and kick back and enjoy reading it.
I was given a copy of Twang by Julie Cannon.
