International Country Music Day

Eck Robertson, a singer, made the first country record with Victor Records. However, Jimmie Rodgers was given the nickname of the "Father of Country Music" by Jimmie Rodgers. His album, "Blue Yodel #1," sold more than one million copies in 1927. Sadly, his life was cut short due to his death in 1933. Country music's flames fanned in the 1930s and 1940s, with Roy Rogers and Gene Autry appearing in cowboy films.

Nashville became the world crown's best-known country music capital by the 1950s and 1960s. Country music has migrated to the West Coast, where rock and roll have mingled with country music to produce rockabilly.

Fans fell in love with the heart-felt lyrics pouring out of country music albums over the years. However, not all country songs are about heartbreak and ache. Some of the best country songs include sex tractors, watermelon crawls, unanswered prayers, boot-scootin' boogies, acquaintances in low places, islands in the stream, and rhinestone cowboys. It's no wonder that so many people adore country music!
