Country, en tidsresa 1944-2013
Av Sonic-redaktionen   
Fredag 7 mars 2014, 15:57
Har du sett TV-programmet Jills verenda och blivit nyfiken på countrymusik - hur den har låtit, utvecklats, var den befinner sig och möjligen vart den är på vägen? Well, då levererar Sonic en Spotify-spellista utformad som en sorts tidsresa från 1944 fram till och med 2013, från Ernest Tubb till Kacey Musgraves, från det konservativa till det frisinnade, från det moraliska till aningen mer omoraliska. Tre låtar per år. Vi har huvudsakligen riktat in oss på den countrymusik som figurerat på topplistor, även om vi också berett plats åt ett och annat undantag - mest bara för att. Hur som helst och oavsett vilket ger allt sammantaget en skapligt god bild av en genre som det på gott och ont har hänt en hel del med under de här åren.
