TTU Professor James Akenson on how modern country music is inspired by its past.
In the conclusion of our two-part series on Country Music, Tennessee Tech Professor James Akenson explains how the music reflected the people who listened. How the music tells a story. The men and women behind the music. And how you can still hear some of the same notes of yesterday in today’s music.
