Traditional Country Lyrics

Traditional Country is a nebulous term -- it can refer to anything from Roy Acuff's simple songs to the electrified honky tonk of Johnny Paycheck -- but the name does evoke a specific sound, namely the long-standing tradition of simple country songs delivered with simple instrumentation and a distinct twang. The era of Traditional Country didn't begin until the early '30s, when Jimmie Rodgers became the first national country music star. Rodgers brought the formerly rural music into the industrial era by making streamlining the music and lyrics; in the process, he made the genre a viable commerical property. Following Rodgers' success, Old-Time music faded in popularity and Traditional Country was born.
