Country & Folk

Nothing screams America more than cold beer, pickup trucks, and freedom, and nothing celebrates these things more than country music. Taking its roots from old school folk music and throwing in a little cowboy flair, country has become the soundtrack of the American South, with its heart located in the legendary music city of Nashville. Country music combines simple harmonies with various string instruments like guitars, banjos, and fiddles, forming songs that can evoke a wide range of emotions. This is one of the qualities for which country music is so celebrated; it has the ability to create melancholy ballads or uplifting, singalong jams that are a perfect accompaniment to a cloudless summer day. Country music provides the perfect tunes for cruising down the highway with the windows open and sun shining down on you. As far as live shows go, when you have country mustic tickets expect the crowd to be belting out every word while arm in arm with their neighbors, swaying back and forth to the beat and raising their beers in the air. So grab your best flannel shirt, 10-gallon hat, and cowboy boots and head on out to a country show!

About Folk and Country Music

Folk music and country music sound a lot similar to each other. The melodies and the storytelling lyrics are common to both genres. Most musicians amalgamate these two genres to create their own unique mix.

The cultural origins of country music date back to the 1920s, in the southern United States. Let’s take a look at the various generations of the development of country music:

First Generation: This part of country music’s history emerged around the early 1920s. Atlanta’s music scene played a major role in launching the earliest country artists of this time period. The first family of country music, The Carter Family, also emerged during this period.

Second Generation: This part of country music history defines the 1930s and 1940s, when the radio became a popular source of entertainment. During this time, cowboy songs which had been recorded previously in the 1920s were popularized by Hollywood films. Various renditions of the new genre began to gain popularity with the infusion of jazz and boogie.

Third Generation: The 1950s – 1960s were referred to as the third generation of country music’s development. Starting at the end of World War II, this period saw the introduction of bluegrass at the Grand Ole Opry. Gospel music also continued to be a popular infusion element for country music. After a slight decline in the traditional country music’s popularity, a crossbred genre was born, known as country rock.

Fourth Generation: The 1970s – 1980s saw the development of outlaw country and country pop, with roots in folk music and soft rock. Singer John Denver released a series of highly successful songs with the amalgamation of these styles evident in them. There were also noted attempts to combine punk and country music, pioneered by the likes of Jason and the Scorchers.

Fifth Generation: During the 1990s, country music became highly successful, with its reach going out far beyond the US. Garth Brooks and Alan Jackson were some of the big names of this time period with the Dixie Chicks being one of the most popular country groups of the early 2000s.

Sixth Generation: With the likes of Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Florida Georgia Line and Taylor Swift, this generation of country musicians is highly popular among the younger age groups today. The influence of rock music on traditional country styles has become more evident. Hip-hop has also been infused with country to create the country rap genre.
