How The Beatles Went Viral
The Beatles have been back in the news this year, as 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the band’s first trip to the United States and landmark appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” Their story has been told time and again, but this feature is a reminder of how quickly their popularity spread across a country nearly 40 times bigger than their homeland.

This is a beautiful photo essay on one of my favorite websites, The Bitter Southerner. It’s all about the culture-defining photographs that Lawson Little has taken of country musicians for more than 40 years, in Nashville, L.A., and elsewhere. The photos are gorgeous, of course, but the story of Little – who, at 68, lives in Pensacola, Florida – is pretty incredible as well. –Jason
