Thus, for many country performers, both past and present, the working world portrayed in their music is a world in which they have had personal experience.10 Contemporary country music lyrics graphically portray the world of work experienced by the Southern labor force, continuing a tradition established with the origins of industry.
Jimmie Rodgers, the first country singer to reach a truly national audience, sang often of the working man. His narrator was often the stylized rambling man down on his luck, at once to be pitied for his lack of material wealth and envied for his freedom.
The music portrays a keen awareness of the plight of the worker, of the necessity for daily toil, of the long odds against achieving wealth or position.

This is so because the liminality to which country music has traditionally responded is not the chosen liminality of postmodern professionals, but the liminality imposed upon working-class folks by economic forces beyond their control.
If New Age music is the music of the Yuppies, country music is, at least traditionally, the music of the "Rednecks." The liminality experienced by rednecks results from the marginality of the redneck community.
As country music becomes the music of the upwardly mobile, it ceases to be the voice of the liminally stuck.

 australian country and hillbilly yodel
The country music industry today is preoccupied with `throwing off the hick image' and emphasising the broad appeal of the genre, and to many current propagandists for Australian country music yodelling is an aspect of both the history and current state of the music which condemns them to commercial unacceptability.
Of the loosely allied musical styles which were emerging in the USA in the 1930s to form the country music genre, cowboy songs were by far the most influential on Australian performers.
The yodel became strongly associated with country music genres, particular with cowboy music of the 1930s, and it is often assumed that the musical technique was associated with such performances in their pre-commercial form.

The chapters are roughly divided into three sections: "Origins," "The Golden Age of Hillbilly Music," and "Contemporary Country Coast to Coast." The topics within the sections include early rockabilly, country fans, the lives of country music stars, the business of country music, the changing image of country music, and country music today.
This book, first published in 1968, is still widely respected as the pioneering and most comprehensive study of the history of country music from its pre-commercial folk roots through the development of the modern country music industry.

It was not until the end of the sixties that a group known as the Outlaws came into Nashville and forever changed the relationship between artist and producer in country music with their wild personas and demand for creative freedom.
Even though there was a huge demand for pop hits, country music was attempting to stay true to the past and to all of the men and women who had brought it to where it was.
Country music had come to a perverbial fork in the road that had one way pointing toward the aging, Grand Ole Opry-type audience, whereas the other was rebellious, young and dissatisfied with what was happening.

The Country Music Association honored the singer as Female Vocalist of the Year in 1975, prompting several members of the CMA to quit in protest.
But Newton-John was already beginning to move away from her country tendencies and the singles that she released in the ensuing years went a long way in cementing her as a pop superstar.
The zenith of her stardom was reached when she starred in the film version of the popular musical Grease with John Travolta in 1978.

These "hippies of country," as Jennings described them once, "just couldn't do it the way it was set up." Jennings played by feel, kept it simple and made a point — and a persona — of doing things just the way he wanted.
His 1972 duet with Nelson, "Good-Hearted Woman," was a No. 1 country single and a crossover pop hit, as was his own "Ramblin' Man" in 1974; in 1975, the Country Music Association named him its Male Vocalist of the year.
Current country stars such as Alan Jackson, Travis Tritt, Charlie Daniels, Steve Earle, even the already-long-on-legacy Hank Williams Jr., have all ridden the down-and-dirty-fication of country that Jennings, Nelson and Cash began, and all of them knew the value of a down-and-dirty persona to go with it.

While the Opry was responsible for Nashville becoming the epicenter for post-World War II country music, Escott points out that the first radio barn dance actually aired in 1923 on Fort Worth's WBAP.
Escott's main thesis is that country lost its "strangeness and its soul" in pursuit of the masses during the Nineties, but he also rattles off a litany of previous identity crises weathered by country music well before Garth Brooks flew around Texas Stadium like Peter Pan.
