Making Country Music “Progressive”
The introduction outlines the main topics, points of discussion and arguments of this book. At the beginning of the 1970s, “progressive country music” seemed to be a contradiction in terms, the chapter states. However, while many observers believed that country music was old fashioned, it gained increasing currency during the late 1960s and early 1970s among politically and socially liberal young people in one of the most rapidly modernizing regions of the United States, the so-called Sun Belt. The introduction talks about the progressive country music scene in Austin, Texas, and about other changes taking place in that area and how they affected each other.
