Praise for For You to See the Stars: 

“Radney Foster writes with uncommon depth of emotion, humor,e empathy, and clarity. I’m going to ask him how he does it, and if he tells me I’ll let you in on his secret. Until then, it’s best that we read, wonder, and revel.” – Peter Cooper, author and musician

“Every place on earth deserves a writer who hears clearly the voices of its people, who captures on the page the beauties embedded in its landscape. Texas is lucky to have Radney Foster. Unbeknownst to them,t he characters in this book–the loud ones as well as the soft-spoken ones–all sing together at Foster’s direction. Their songs will stay with you long after you close this book.” – Aaron Alford, Managing editor Southern Humanities Review

“In every generation, writers are born with the uncanny knack tow eave together language into verse so magical that it pierces the mind and reaches down into the soul. I discovered one such writer when fellow native Texan Radney Foster released his first solo album Del Rio, TX 1959. With this book Radney gifts us the stories of loss and lessons learned, observing life and its everyday miracles evoking emotion, both strong and tender, that affirm what makes us truly special. Being human.” -Robert Cross, KUTX Radio
