From Asheville to Austin, contemporary singer-songwriters explore America’s rural musical roots. Updated with 6 new tracks.
The landscape of American music is as vast and varied as the geography of the country itself. At its root are a range of diverse cultural influences that have combined to form what is now called Americana music. Sometimes called “alternative country,” it’s a genre whose parameters are broad enough to include bluegrass, folk and traditional country with occasional elements of blues, jazz and others thrown in.
At the heart of Americana are contemporary singer-songwriters who have honed their craft by exploring the country’s rural traditions.
