  Country music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Country music, also called country and western music or country-western, is an amalgam of popular musical forms developed in the Southern United States, with roots in traditional folk music, Celtic Music, Blues, Gospel music, and Old-time music.
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 Hillbilly's and maudlin ballads.

Genres usually deal in a sort of pre-set context; that is, the world of a western genre, cattle drive sub-genre, has its world already fairly well created for the writer -- and it is a world that the audience is quite familiar with.
Genres, those types of film stories that may be easily grouped together because of similarities in story line, method of delivery, and style, are Cliff Notes for the screenwriters.
You will probably discover that the essential film genres have been conveniently separated for you, and while you may have to categorize the sub-genre forms within each section, doing so by film is also a very useful way to begin to recognize the rules that govern the writing of screenplays in that form.

 The Reading Experience: This is Not a Post About Cormac McCarthy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
The work of genre writers tends to inform the most superficial aspects of the popular culture while the work of "serious literature" is adopted at the procedural level by other serious artists.
If genre is used to denote the formulaic only, and serious fiction as that which transcends genre (the way the aforementioned classics transcend the romance formula, and 1984 and Brave New World transcend the Science Fiction genre), then I have no quibble with you.
Genre the way you use it, is not simply a form, but the stock version of a form.

 Reproduced and emergent genres of communication on the World-Wide Web
However, most genres imply a combination of purpose and form, such as a newsletter, which communicates "the news of the day", including multiple short articles and is distributed periodically to subscribers or members of an organization.
These genres share some similarities, such as a title and bibliography, but differ in other particulars, such as the expected section headings, types of arguments, etc. Similarly, TV sitcoms are a special case of TV shows in general, project team meetings of meetings, and so on.
We started with a list of genres and their definitions developed in a pilot study and refined it during the course of this study.

Country music has also influenced the work of many fl musicians such as Ray Charles and Keb' Mo'.
Although country music has great stylistic diversity, this diversity was strangled somewhat by the formulaic approach of the record producers like Chet Atkins.
Even today the variety of country music is not usually well reflected in radio airplay and the popular perception of country music is still influenced by the maudlin ballads and whining steel guitars that many people still associate with the genre.

What happened at Carlynton clearly illustrates why arts education is on the endangered species list at schools across the nation.
Some ideas from the teachers who attended included hanging student artwork in school hallways along with a list of the math and English skills that were used or learned by the student artists, or showing the spring concert audience a short video of the first time students tried playing a song they eventually mastered.
Tambucci thinks the only way for the arts to regain popularity in public schools is for arts teachers to make their specialities central to what goes on in schools.
