"As Chris Abernathy narrates this celebration of American bourbon, the listener can almost feel the humidity and smell the Kentucky countryside. His Southern intonations are compatible with the voice of the author, an ESPN writer who hails from Mississippi."

"This thoughtful reflection on Memphis's music history is complemented by narrator Chris Abernathy's soft Southern accent and relaxed timing. Abernathy uses a conversational tone when reporting on the cultural roots of the blues and rock and roll and employs a storytelling mode when recounting music memories."

"Chris Abernathy's narration starts off by putting listeners at the scene of the Astor Place Riot of 1849, which the writer Ned Buntline was involved in. Abernathy puts a sense of urgency into the blow-by-blow accounts of violence in Buntline's life story. Elsewhere, there's amusement in Abernathy's voice as he reads newspaper clippings on the play Buntline wrote for William "Buffalo Bill" Cody."

"There's a hint of nostalgia in Chris Abernathy's voice as he narrates John Snyder's stories of growing up in the Carolinas in the 1930s and 1940s. He gives Snyder only a trace of a Southern accent, adding in just a little more for Snyder's daddy, who plays a large role in the story. Other characters, such as Snyder's aunts, are voiced with dialect in full bloom."
