My piano teacher said the explanation was the decline of civilization.

:rofl:

Go to a concert when getting the chance to after the kiddo is born. Surely you'll find some county fairs around this summer with live music. Maybe culture chock extravagance though with the country. But Johnny Cash might be the foot in the door.

Timeline

Country music in the United States originated in the southern part of the United States and was influenced by the music of many countries.

It became popular in the 1940s, started in the 1920s, but has roots that go way back. Country music did originate in the south, but it started as a type of music which took instruments and styles from many of the countries of the early settlers.

For example, the fiddle is important in country music, and was brought by Scottish and Irish settlers. Strings are also important, and they came from German dulcimers, Spanish guitars, Italian mandolins, and West African banjos. Early 20th century Appalachian string bands had the fiddle, guitar, and banjo. Let’s not forget that in and around Texas, settlers interacted with Mexicans and Native Americans, who added their style to the forming country music, as well as contributing to the unique culture of Texas.

Country music came from many sources

  • It came from the hillbilly music of the 1920s. Barn dance music was catching on, and the first country song recorded was “Sallie Gooden” by Eck Robertson released by Victor records in 1922. Soon, Columbia Records began releasing hillbilly music.
  • The first female country singers to be recorded were Samantha Bumgarner and Eva Davis.
  • The steel guitar was incorporated in some early country music after Jimmie Tarlton met the Hawaiian guitarist Frank Ferera. Now you can add Hawaii as places that contributed something to country music.
  • Many artists included blues, gospel, jazz, and cowboy songs into their music. Notable country musicians of the 1920s include: Fiddlin’ John Carson, Vernon Dalhart, Cliff Carlisle, Riley Puckett, Don Richardson, Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family.

The 1930s and 1940s saw the Great Depression, which meant that fewer records were sold and people relied more on radio for entertainment. In 1925, the “Grand Ole Opry” began airing and was heard in most of the country. Early stars were:

  • Roy Acuff
  • Uncle Dave Macon
  • George Jones
  • Loretta Lynn
  • Porter Wagoner

This was the beginning of the Golden Age of country music. During this time, cowboy music was popularized in movie performances by Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, the Sons of the Pioneers, and Patsy Montana.

Bob Wills mixed country and jazz into what became Western Swing. In 1935, he added drums to the Texas Playboys and soon most country bands had added drums. This was influenced by rockabilly that became popular in the 1950s.

Hillbilly boogie started in 1939 which started the trend from country and blues into rockabilly. Notable artists of this genre were Johnny Barfield, Delmore Brothers, Arthur Smith, and Tennessee Ernie Ford.

Other genres include:

  • Bluegrass, with Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs
  • Gospel music, with Red Foley
  • Honky tonk, which was associated with barrooms

Some famous honky tonk artists were Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys, Al Dexter, Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams, and Ted Daffan.

My baby liked country music before I ever met her. I did introduce her to bluegrass though.

There's just something about the sound of the banjo...


May your visa journey be smooth and speedy.
