One of the most versatile artists ever to emerge from South Louisiana, Butch Hornsby was an accomplished singer and songwriter, with a difficult personal life. A talented man, Hornsby defeated his own talent through a series of bad decisions. Dirtdobber Blues, a novelization of Hornsby's life, was written by his close friend Cyril Vetter. Through the music, images, and text, Hornsby moves from the strawberry fields of Amite, Louisiana, to the bars of Baton Rouge and into the unforgiving arena of the recording industry. Along the way, Vetter provides glimpses into the musician's inspiration--a tumultuous young love, a stint in Hollywood, his family's return to Louisiana--and pieces together the arc of Hornsby's life, littered with poor decisions, crowned by artistic success, and concluding with the redemptive power of love.
