The infectious melody, the guitar and the strong vocals are mere words to infuse passion into Country Music melophiles. The genre of Country Music (aka Country and Western Music) originated during the 1920s in the Southern U.S. Initially known as hillbilly music, has its roots in genres such as blues, ballads and old-time music, including American folk and cowboy western music styles.
Country Music- An American Original Art Form; But Adored World-Wide.
Ken Burns in his eight-part 16-hour series, 'Country Music-A Film by Ken Burns' states- "Country Music is about human emotions. We are always looking for those topics that are going to tell us a lot about who we are; not just to the era we cover, but who we are now. It is phenomenally great music about people who felt their stories are worth being told."
There are several sub-genres of Country Music, but what hits the commonality is the prose. The songs engage sentiments through words beaded together with melody. Country Music has always outreached its purpose with service; there is always something for everyone. Powerful characters depicting power stories; unforgettable everyday truths of hardships and joys shared by people. Country Music has changed over time; diverse and fascinating contributors and creators; their stories and souls. 17th of September is the official fun day to celebrate the International Country Music Day; in case every day is not enough for all the music lovers out there. There are many talented country singers that you could pick from. Here are a few of my top favourites.
