  Country music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family are widely considered to be the founders of country music, and their songs were first captured at an historic recording session in Bristol, Tennessee on August 1, 1927, where Ralph Peer was the talent scout and sound recordist.
Even today the variety of country music is not usually well reflected in commercial radio airplay and the popular perception of country music is fraught with stereotypes of hillbillies and maudlin ballads.
However, "country music is [also] widely disparaged in racialized terms, and assertions of its essential 'badness' are frequently framed in specifically racial terms" such as "white trash" (Fox 2004).

 St. James Encyclopedia of Pop Culture: Country Music
Country music has a history that is deeply rooted in traditional white Southern working-class values, patriotism, conservative politics, and lyrics that tell the unblinking truth about life.
And though most country music and country music fans might advocate a straight and narrow conservative path, the lyrics of country songs deal with the dilemmas of life with a complexity not found in any other popular music.
Country music's earliest roots are found in the ballads of the Appalachian Mountains, songs that stemmed from a tradition brought to America by the English, Scots, and Irish who settled that territory.

 Country - Free Music Downloads - MP3 Downloads - Download.com Music
Country has a reputation for being simple, homespun music, defined by twangy vocals, moaning steel guitars, and lyrics about dogs, trucks, death, prison bars, and tears in one's beer.
But in reality, country covers a surprisingly large amount of territory--everything from Gene Autry's cowboy music to Bill Monroe's bluegrass, from Hank Williams' honky-tonk songs to the slick pop stylings of Faith Hill.
These days country's got rock, soul, maybe a touch of jazz, and plenty of the blues, but when you're pining for a lost love or yearning for the smell of a mountain breeze (or your mama's cooking), there's nothing like a good country song to bring you back home.
