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.
