Country music originates in the rural areas of South and West America, in the early 20th century. The musical roots of the beloved American musical genre lie in ballads and folk songs of the Scots, Irish and English music. You can also hear hints of Blues, Gospel, and Church music, giving Country its deep soul. Country music saw its rapid growth in the 1920's thanks to radio shows who dedicated their airtime to these soothing tunes.
We'd like to take you back through the sands of time with country hits from the 60s through the 80s, including one blast from the past: a 1927 hit. Can you spot it?
