In The Country Music Reader Travis D. Stimeling provides an anthology of primary source readings from newspapers, magazines, and fan ephemera encompassing the history of country music from circa 1900 to the present. Presenting conversations that have shaped historical understandings of country music, it brings the voices of country artists and songwriters, music industry insiders, critics, and fans together in a vibrant conversation about a widely loved yet seldom studied genre of American popular music. Situating each source chronologically within its specific musical or cultural context, Stimeling traces the history of country music from the fiddle contests and ballad collections of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries through the most recent developments in contemporary country music. Drawing from a vast array of sources including popular magazines, fan newsletters, trade publications, and artist biographies, The Country Music Reader offers firsthand insight into the changing role of country music within both the music industry and American musical culture, and presents a rich resource for university students, popular music scholars, and country music fans alike.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The Country Music Reader, assembled for 'students of music history' by Travis D. Stimeling, is a wonderful collection of primary sources who purpose is to present the subject 'not simply as the result of musicians' work but also as a product of many figures, often with competing interests and goals.' The variety of sources Stimeling has accumulated achieves his primary objective and is the strength of this volume." --The Journal of Southern History
