History of Country & Western Music
Country music has had a loyal following for decades. Although country music's popularity
has its roots in the 1920s, the genre started producing superstars
in the 1950s with artists such as Hank Williams and Johnny Cash. More long-term careers
were launched in the 1960s with Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton. Here are a few links
to country playlists. This section will expand soon to include more eras.
