In the time of the Great Depression came a new rise in the populatiry of Country Music. This is due to the origins of the genera itself having been always associated with reflecting social change. Things really started to pick up for country music in the landmark recording sessions that took place in Bristol, Virgina in 1927, it was there where Hall of Fame country singers Jimmy Rodgers from Mississippi and the Carters from Virginia recorded “The Soldiers Sweetheart” under the brilliant conductor Ralph Peer. This was the first time that America had the chance to embrace country music during the Depression The reason that America flocked to country music in the 1930s was due to the way the music was easily to relate to.
