Summary Contrary to popular belief, the roots of American country music do not lie solely on southern farms or in mountain hollows. Rather, much of this music recorded before World War II emerged from the bustling cities and towns of the Piedmont South. No group contributed more to the commercialisation of early country music than southern factory workers. This book explores the origins and development of this music in the Piedmont's mill villages
