Hey! I’m glad you’re here! This post is part of a 31 Day writing challenge hosted by The Nester. During the month of October, I’m writing on Southern A Way of Life. I will be back to my ‘regular’ posts in November. Consider pushing that follow button to the right for all my latest posts. Thanks y’all!
The roots of America’s music are buried deep and wide across the South. Many different forms of music were blended on the porches, in churches, in bars and on street corners: styles like Ragtime, Jazz, Blues, Country, Gospel, Zydeco, and Rock-n-Roll. Music transcends barriers of all types and resonates deep within a person’s soul.
Doodlebug and I share a few song titles that are songs for southerners. But, I’ve also compiled a playlist for you today of songs sung by southerners about the South. I, also, included a few southerners, not singing about the South, but I couldn’t leave them out. Also, I tried to give a sampling of some of the different styles of music that developed in the South. You might be surprised that some of these musicians are southern. I couldn’t include everyone and I’m sorry if I left off your favorite southern musician. After I made the playlist, I thought of many more.
