Unless you’re a fan of ’50s country music, you probably haven’t heard of the Browns. But the three siblings had a string of hits, and their popularity once rivaled that of Elvis Presley, who dated the youngest Brown, Bonnie. Nashville Chrome, this novelized account of their story raises questions at every juncture about what is fact and what is fiction. But Rick Bass’ evocative detailing of the singers’ upbringing, rise to stardom, and heartbreaking fall into the ”Where are they now?” file sweeps you along just as the real-life Browns’ music once carried away listeners. B+
