Country music is a popular genre of music not only in America but around the globe. However, this beautiful music in all its emotion and honesty has a reputation as ‘White People’s Music‘.

This is a misguided and entirely untrue label that alienates the fans and sadly makes people not appreciate the Black Country singers who have largely contributed to this segregated genre of music from as far back as the 1920s.

In reality, though, country music owes its roots to black artists and musicians who changed country music and gave meaning to it including some of the ones who taught the king of country – the legendary Jimmie Rodgers, everything he knows about country music.
