Pearly Country Gates

Pearly Country Gates

More influential gospel sounds this morning on Deeper Roots. We take a dip into the country, bluegrass, and folk extensions whose roots are buried in 19th and early 20th century European American musical traditions. It’s a mixed bag with contributions from the Protestant, Baptist, and Black Gospel hymnals and songbooks. And don’t forget the quiet bubbling influences of popular music, the logical extension of selling the message…a kind of backroads Madison Avenue. We’re focused on country gospel today with the usual giants of country music: George Jones, Johnny Cash, Buck Owens, and The Louvins…but we’ll also hear from the bluegrass contingent including Ricky Skaggs, Bill Monroe, and Flatt and Scruggs. A heavenly time where we share music that would weave its way into the fabric of America’s music including rock, soul, country, and Americana. Tune in on Friday mornings.
