"Beautiful Mess" by Diamond Rio tells the story of how the six men from Diamond Rio became interested in music and the struggles they each faced before making it big in Nashville. It also describes how they came together as a band and became a very successful group in country music. Their story is one of determination and commitment and shows the respect the guys have for each other. I grew up listening to country music and Diamond Rio has always been one of my favorite groups. I never knew the ups and downs they had over the years until I read the book. If you are a fan of country music you will like this book.
