This course surveys the rich musical, cultural, and economic history of country music in the United States. Since its inception, country music has embodied a tension between tradition and progress. Country music thereby reflects a basic feature of the American story, valorizing our history while valuing social and technological development. Throughout the course, we consider this tension as it affects the musical content and cultural meaning of country music.

Additional Course Details: 

MUSI  406, Country Music will be conducted completely on-line and (almost) completely asynchronously.  Any fixed-time sessions will either be optional or will form a series of events of which you only need to log-in to one in real time. The attached syllabus is from the last time the last time the course was taught in the summer (2019).  There wil likely be a few different assignments and activities this summer, but the general nature of the course and the expected work-load will be very similar to 2019.
