What does it mean when we call a music genre like country "authentic" or "pure", or, in contrast, "commercial"? By examining the dramatic changes that occurred in country music in the 1950s and '60s, Joli Jensen explores why the concept of authenticity in country music is so crucial to so many of its fans. Anyone interested in the ways that popular culture has been shaped in response to changing times will find Jensen's incisive interpretations instructive. 20 illustrations.
