Country Music Videos

Country music has come a long way since its early days. Unlike some of the artists of today who are playing to large scale stadiums and concert festivals, the origins of country music fall in American folk music, Western and blues.

Some of the earliest examples of real country music began in the 1920s in the southern United States. In most cases country music usually falls into the categories of ballads, dancing tunes or even borderline folk or rock ‘n roll. Generally it’s created using acoustic guitars, electric guitars, fiddles harmonicas and banjos.

Some of the first country superstars began out of the Atlanta music scene. In the early 1920s there were a variety of Appalachian people who came into Atlanta to work at some of the massive cotton mills, with their labor they also brought their music which would continue to be performed in small performance all is as well as be recorded in several small studios up until the 1950s. These first generations of country music would refine themselves into Western music, which are the cowboy songs we generally hear in early country, bluegrass music and honky-tonk music. It wasn’t until the third generation of country musicians that we started to see styles similar to Elvis Presley’s country music, and Johnny Cash’s rockabilly style. Some of these country songs and country lyrics from the 1950s and 60s are still some of the most treasured songs and country artists today.
