Excellent summary of Country music in the USA
A lot of information in a relatively short presentation. This is a history of many important milestones in the popularization of country music. It's not an academic piece that goes back to the roots music of immigrants. It's more about the show biz and recording aspect that we are familiar with. For an audio book less than two hours long, it's packed with well organized information.
The performance is superb. The narrator is great. The background music makes it even more engaging.

The History of Country Music in Words
Any additional comments?
Maybe not for those in the USA, but I enjoyed The History of Country Music. I like country music and found this history to be entertaining and informative. The background music is generic and therefore it doesn't detract you from the story. If you enjoy country music give it a try but don't expect a block-busting epic.
