Publisher's Description

Sometimes the distance between your mind and your heart adds up to three months, 10,000 miles and 30 years of rock and roll.

Sure. It's easy enough to say you trust God, that you are a new creation completely severed from the old. But as author and Grammy-winning producer Ken Mansfield confesses, sometimes it takes a change of scenery to move you beyond the mire of the past to a deeper, more intimate faith.

In Between Wyomings, Mansfield embarks on an emblematic three-month road trip determined to face off with the good, the bad, and the tragic of his life as a famed music producer to some of the biggest names in music history. Along the journey Mansfield colorfully recounts classic events in music history and personal experiences with icons such as Waylon Jennings, Dolly Parton, Glen Campbell, Roy Orbison, Andy Williams, Don Ho, Willie Nelsonⷕohⷕand an obscure little band called The Beatles. With insight and humility, Mansfield chronicles 30 years of his life in the LA, London and Nashville music scenes.

A rare account filled with honesty, hope, and often hilarity, Between Wyomings is an unforgettable story that will leave you wholly affected as Mansfield makes his way back "home" to the heart of God's love, mercy, and grace.

Publisher's Weekly

Sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll and... religion? Former record executive Mansfield (The White Book) looks back on his life during a road trip from the vantage point of one who has seen it all and then found God. The open road is an apt and common metaphor for the spiritual life, but this travelogue never really connects the dots. Why does the author take the trip? What does he hope to find? Is he attempting to exorcise past demons, or beg forgiveness for enjoying the excesses of life in the music business? All of these are themes the author flirts with but never embraces. Mansfield's prayerful musings, however, are quite extraordinary. These spirituality-infused moments are the most poignant of the book, although they make strange bedfellows with accounts of hanging out with Ringo Starr, Dolly Parton and Lou Rawls. While the book is a bit disjointed, the brief forays into prayer along with the exciting stories of the music business in the '60s and '70s make this a welcome addition to the spirituality shelf.
