The Roots of Country Music

Country music is rooted in the folk traditions of the British Isles. In the new world, those roots became entangled with the ethnic musics of other immigrants and African slaves. Many gospel hymns were also popularized in the nineteenth century South, while tent shows and blackface minstrelsy introduced folk-sounding tunes written by northern professionals. Country Music lyrics contd. Played on fiddles or homemade banjos, all this music would one day sound as if born in the southern hills.

The Country industry takes shape

Beginning in the 1920s, the first country records and radio programs brought the music out of the rural heartland and into homes across America. Radio shows made national stars of many performers. Country Music lyrics contd. The early records, covering a broad range of musical styles, told of train wrecks and shipwrecks and of nostalgia for "The Little Old Log Cabin in the Lane."

By the 1930s, as America struggled with the twin horrors of the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression, the dream of the Wild West and the freedom it symbolized provided escape. Country Music lyrics contd. Western imagery dominated country music, and as World War II approached, the singing cowboy appeared to stand for all that was fair and just. End of Country Music lyrics.
