For a long time, country music has been popular as a way to sing about emotions, events, and people in ordinary life. Over the years, country music has changed, bringing in more instruments, complex lyrics, and musical styles. From honky-tonks to Nashville, country rock to pop country, this style of music continues to evolve, grow, and keep people singing along. Readers discover history behind these toe-tapping tunes through main text and sidebars featuring annotated quotes from country artists and music critics, a detailed discography of essential country albums, and photographs of superstars of country music.
