Country Music Month

Country Music Month is a fun holiday that thousands of fans of the direction are waiting for every year. The type of music originated in the 1920s in the southern United States and immediately sunk into the hearts of many listeners. Its main feature at that time was the American flavor. The lyrics of the songs were not distinguished by romance – instead of this, they wrote with pleasure about the life of ordinary people.

History

Country Music Month has been celebrated unofficially since 1964, and only in 1970 did it become formal. This is the merit of Richard Nixon – 39th President of America. The direction began to gain more popularity than classical music. It is noted that country has become a kind of fusion of several styles: folk, church, African American blues. Violin, autoharp, acoustic guitar, etc. were used to create recognizable melodies.

The origins of country began with violinists from the Southern Appalachians. In the 1930s, the direction began to be used as soundtracks for cowboy films. One of the most popular films is Urban Cowboy starring John Travolta. Now music continues to inspire, make happy, sad and rejoice. Many famous artists are reaching out to the younger generation to support the style.
