Country music began in the early 1900's around southern Georgia. The sounds from guitars, banjos, and harmonicas to name a few made the unique sound that made it so widely popular.
One of the first groups known to fans of country music was The Carter Family, which was made up of June Carter Cash's family. Her mother, Mother Maybelle may have been the first true lady of country music.
Country music gained popularity in the 1940's and has continued to be a popular type of music today although the genre of country music has changed over the years.
