Wonderful photos of country music greats in Vanity Fair

Whatever you think about the politics of Vanity Fair, it is the hands down best magazine for photographs of famous people. The November issue focuses on country music, and of the 23 photos in the spread, nine were taken in Tennessee by ace photographer Mark Seliger, who has shot over 100 covers for Rolling Stone.

The Tennessee locations include Porter Wagoner–where else?–at the Opry; Alison Krauss and Ralph Stanley at Hatch Show Print; and Dwight Yoakam, Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris, and Lyle Lovett in Memphis’s Sun Studios. Gretchen Wilson appears in a low-rent looking Nashville kitchen with Kentucky Fried Chicken and Jack Daniels on the chrome table.
