The History of Country Music: Where Did Country Music Come From? | [Lynette Barton]

The History of Country Music: Where Did Country Music Come From?

Country music grew up in the mountains of Appalachia, in the cotton fields of Georgia and Mississippi, the car and truck plants in Detroit, and in the coal mines of Pennsylvania. It was - and is - the music of the people. Hairl Hensley tells of Jimmy Rodgers and the Carter Family; of Bob Wills and Ernest Tubb, whose music played in honky tonks...and Roy Acuff , whose music was heard in Madison Square Garden; of the Girls of the Golden West, but also of Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire.

    "The History of Country Music in Words"
    Any additional comments?

    Maybe not for those in the USA, but I enjoyed The History of Country Music. I like country music and found this history to be entertaining and informative. The background music is generic and therefore it doesn't detract you from the story. If you enjoy country music give it a try but don't expect a block-busting epic.
