Country Music- the Soulful Rhythms

No matter what your preferences are, no matter what kind of disposition you have- you simply cannot refrain yourself from being mesmerised and enticed by music. Since its inception, music has been the most loved source of entertainment and people with different tastes and likings admire several kinds of music. It has different kinds and forms. Across the world different kinds of music has evolved with the emergence of distinctive civilizations and the characteristic nature of the people in different countries etc. The influence of music can be felt in every corner of the world. Various genre of music like rock, pop, classical, jazz etc have been immensely applauded by the people. Country Music

is also well accepted and admired by the music listeners across the globe. This highly melodious and mellifluous form of music is awesomely pure and subtle. Unlike the conventional pop and metal music, this genre is known for its flawless and soft rhythms that are soothing to the ears and pleasant to the soul. Many popular artists have given amazing performances and great albums that have remarkable influences from this music. These albums have achieved admirable success and recognition from the listeners.

Country music is a remarkably enticing genre of music that focuses on the melodies and the rhythms. It is identified by its immensely mellifluous tones and upbeat numbers. It is a blend of various distinctive music forms from across the world and mainly has influences from the music that was originated in the southern parts of the United States and the region of Appalachian Mountains. Around 1920, this category rapidly evolved and gained popularity among the masses. This kind of music has its roots in the various traditional and classical types like folk music, old times music, Celtic music, gospel and the blues. In the southern United States the various ethnic groups created music of different styles and the combination of all these styles emerged as the Western Music that comprises a major part of the country and western music.

There have been a number of artists and performers who have gained immense popularity with this genre of music. Elvis Presley, who was earlier known as The Hillbilly Cat was one of the biggest pop icons in the history of music. He won recognition through his immensely admirable country music performances. He was featured on the radio program Louisiana Hayride where he used to give amazing performances based on this music. Similarly Garth Brooke is one of the most appreciated country based music artist whose albums were chart toppers. He made short debut in other genres too. This genre saw its greatest high in the year 2006 when the country albums sales increased by the 17.7 percent to a whopping 36 millions.

The country pop has its roots in the soft rock and the country-politan which emerged as a sub genre of this music in the 1970’s. It was well accepted by the wide variety of audiences during the same decade. The singers like John Denver, Glen Campbell and Anne Murray were some of the most admired artists of this genre. “RhineStone Cowboy” by Campbell is amongst the best and biggest crossover music hits. The songs in this music CD are still hummed by the teenagers and youngsters. Olivia Newton John is considered as the best female country vocal performer.

Outlaw country revolutionized this genre of music completely with the derived Honky Tonk sounds of late 1950’s. After 1935, the Western Swing Big Band leader Bob Willis used drums as the major instrument in his band Texas Playboy. The drums were readily used by the country musicians and the rockabilly groups till 1955. Later, they became significant in the country bands also. The electric guitar was used in the bands that were originated in the beginning of 1938. Arthur Smith achieved immense success with the Guitar Boogie a MGM records album that declared the beginning of guitar as the most influential instrument in the country band.

 Good Morning NOLA!  The bananna tree in the courtyard looks as cold as I feel.  It is chilly out there people!  The sun is back for a little while even though our nights will be cold. Keep an eye on your pets, plants and pipes for now.  There is no rain in the forecast until a week from today.  So it’s just us and Mr. Sunshine.  Our weekend still looks like it will be beautiful.  Our Highs will be in the fifties for today and tomorrow then warming slightly with daytime highs bumping up into the sixties.  You will still want a jacket or sweater, but what great weather to get out and do something.  I am so looking forward to this weekend.  I feel like I have been hibernating .  Come see me at the OCH Market  on Saturday.  there will be lots of cool stuff.  I know you can find something for that specail Valentine.  You will want to check out my book “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!”  See you in NOLA!

Good Morning NOLA!  Wow, did we get hammered this morning.   Keep an eye out for the thunderstorms through out the  morning.  Also if you are on the road watch for flooded roadways and go around.  Some neighborhoods are flooded and are trying to keep traffic from passing through and creating a wake that is pushing more water into their yards and homes. There have also been reports of downed trees and power outages. If at all possible you really ought to hang out at home for a while this will pass through by lunch or so leaving with some nice sunny days for a while.  According to the forecast there will be no more rain until the middle of next week. The high today is in the upper seventies with the low for tonight only fifty.  I sure am glad that I am not working out there today.  It seems like a great opportunity to write severals pieces I have been putting off for a while.  Y’all be safe and responsible out there and try to stay dry.  I’ll see you in NOLA!

 Good Morning NOLA! It is another beautiful spring like day.  Hight today just nosing over the seventy degree mark with clouds today.  What a great week we have had so far. Yesterday was  a little overcast.  It looks like our overnight lows will stay in the fifties with partly sunny days in the seventies for the next several days. You won’t need the jacket today.  I am still trying to figure out wardrobe for today. I need something that I can wear that will be right for this warm day but not too spring like.  After all it is still February. No rain in the forecast until mid week next week and then it is just a few showers.  Even though this dampness sure feels like rain. Saturday starts the first parade for the 2011 Mardi Gras season.  What great weather to get things kicked off.  I hope you have a terrific Thursday and the rest of your week is just as great.  I’m ready for the weekend.  See you in NOLA!

 Good Morning NOLA!  Well we are waking up to a very windy day today and the Green Bay Packers are the new Super Bowl Champions.  The Steelers just couldn’t pull it off. I hope they enjoy there year because our Saints will be back next year with an eye on the prize again.  Temperatures should reach the fifties today with partly cloudy skies.  But with so much wind it will probably feel a little colder.  Our lows will drop back into the thirties tonight. Overall it is shaping up to be a relative sunny week. There is still some rain and showers in the forecast but the outlook is mostly clear and cold for the rest of the week with a slight warming over the weekend to come.  With football done, I guess it’s on to the Mardi Gras festivities  and don’t forget Valentines Day is just around the corner.  Whatever you do today, work or play, I hope you have a wonderful day.  See you in NOLA!
