Description In the thirties artists like the Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers pioneered what we know today as country music. Other artists such as Bob Wills and Bill Monroe then began to pioneer their own sub-genres of country. Wills was the King Of Western Swing and Monroe the Father Of Bluegrass, two styles that still thrive to this day.

Featured on this album are rural artists such as the Skillet Lickers and Fiddlin' John Carson who sit next to country legends such as Roy Acuff and Hank Williams. This makes for a very eclectic mix and an accurate view of the early years of this massive and important American art form.
